This reminds me of the art by Stephen Gammell that was in the "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" books. Very nice!

Wow it's amazing how many shades you manage to make! It's incredible! This may be a stupid question.. but is the background, the "watermarks", made only by ink, water and brush? I'm still quite unpracticed with inks, I'm quite clumsy, that's why I ask, hehe.

This is really a fantastic drawing.

Thank you! The background is exactly what you say. =) Very light washes with ink and brush, with a lot of water to ensure it blends smoothly into the paper. If you're looking for alternatives, graphite powder is a nice accent to ink for large areas. it'll smudge a bit, but its a lot easier to use than ink!

I think I've seen an animation of that story once... was it about a kid who had a magic paintbrush, and anything he painted came alive and then the emperor heard about it?

Good picture anyway!
