Shades of Umber by Inku-inku Shades of Umber by Inku-inku
An over-worked practice with an ink brush. My first attempt at linearts on formats larger than ACEOs.
It has many flaws but served as a wonderful learning experience!

A4 sized
Black ink, watercolor, mechanical and white pencil, white ink.

I really love the way your style treads between the qualities of medieval european paintings, classic chinese and japanese paintings, and then something else entirely your own.

I really like the use of the toned paper. The line-work adds a lot of clarity. Now you just get to play with deciding which areas to make sharp and which to let go. If you ask me, this image could be divided up into a few different separate images. The knife girl with the wolf and the bird drool(?) would work as one image as well as the girl with the buffalo. The fox could be part of something separate as well. Maybe try a more focused narrative with this technique next.

Thank you!
I agree with you completely. This was a spontaneous practice turned into something bigger, so I didn't actually plan anything, hence the messy composition and lack of focus. I'll definitely use this technique more in the future ;).

May i ask why the blank stripe on the left?

Thank you!
The blank strip is to balance the composition a bit- I tried to extend the background at first but it looked quite bad composition-wise. Cropping the strip also put the thing out of balance, so I've decided to leave it as it is. I'll do some planing even with practice-works next time ;>.

Thank you! The flaws that irk me most are mainly composition issues, but started off as a practice, not a well-planned work, so I forgive myself ;).
