Love is in the airrr! ;)I like this a lot mate! Good flow to the cloth. Traditional inking is a passion I've lost. I used to love sitting there with my pot of ink.. mmm loverly :)
Thanks, Scott. While doing this one, I couldn't help but miss Ctr+Z...PS has spoiled me rotten.
You know, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself. Your line work is very intricate yet has a spontaneous feel to it. I really like this piece and I feel you have communicated quite a bit of personality for this guy. PS is a wonderful tool, but there is so much that ink can teach you. The permanence of ink is one of the things that attracts me to it. It makes you think about what you should do before you do it. That and its really messy. I always feel I've done a good job when there is a substantial mess to clean up after. Thanks for the link, by the way!
Hi Kim,Sorry about the tardiness of this reply. First, you really do brighten the day so thank you!It's funny how I use self-deprecation to compensate for the fact that I'm a frothing bundle of self-doubt. But! I persevere, and honestly, with support like yours, I'm not going to let such a little thing get the better of me!I love sketching in ink as I feel that, without the option of erasing, I'm so much looser and dynamic. The ink work of Yoshitaka Amano is still a huge favorite of mine.
