|What goes up must come down|
Pokeleaf was introduced as a variant to Pokeroot and I found it far more satisfying to draw. Anything orbish often leaves me thinking it's too flattened or wobbly, whereas leaf shapes seem to make sense to my pen - maybe because I spend a lot of time writing about trees? But Growth felt a bit lame, and despite much practice I couldn't draw it in a way that looked or felt good. To add insult to injury I decided to try again with Bucky - that most stubborn tangle. I did it but the result is a bit awkward - each tangle looks like it's standing uncomfortably next to it's neighbour. My Growth pyramids remind me of Croquembouche - which look impressive, but I'd rather have a decent serving in my own bowl!
