While I'm much happier with how the leaves turned out, the flower and the progression of gray on the flowers still isn't that good, yet. And I don't like the shape of the flower on this one, either. Grump, gripe.

But it's better than the first ones, and it's fun to keep a progression of them. Plus, I used bottled ink for the first time in a while, and I don't like the color of it as much as what I get when I grind the ink for myself. (okay, it amuses me that I used that fact in a fic for June).
