show your work

every once in awhile i start fucking around with further developing/diversifying my style. i have been using an ink brush for quite awhile now, but recently i started practicing (again) the chinese/japanese style of using said brush. here are more pages devoted to that.

one of the many things i like about sumi-e is that white space is an important part of the work.

it’s still INKtober!

i checked out some books on sumi-e, japanese ink brush technique, as i have all the tools & may even have the talent. and! i have so many empty canvases i have been lugging around. of course, now that madness manor & i have found each other, i hopefully will not be moving again in the foreseeable future.
but i still need to do something with all those empty canvases. one is like 5 feet by 4 feet…or something ridiculous like that. i have it in the back of my head to do something epic with it. i think combining sumi-e with my own style might just be the trick. so i am practicing my sumi-e. above is “second experiment” and below is “first experiment” (per the instruction book but with some artistic license taken by me.)
