A Nice City Canopy Walkway (Inked Art)



Yes people, I am finally back with a new piece after a few months of absence: same tools, same style and same horrible inking!

This was soo tiresome and stressfull to ink that I abandoned halfway ... but luckily I found the courage to continue. One stain or one error on the inking of the buildings and everything was wasted ... but I love the difficulty and adrelanine it gives me.

Some need rollercoasters or Cliff-diving ... I simply need a pen, a ruler and a nice A3 paper ^^

15h of draft
3h30 of lining
7h30 if inking (1h for red ink)
1h or crying because of a ink stain on one of the withe birds ^^

technical paper CANSON A3,
indian ink (weird chinese brand ^^)
0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 STAEDTLER liners
Red Drawink Ink MAJUSCULE

Please comment, I promise to respond to your comment ^^

The buildings. looks pristine for all the squared windows, including the tops of the buildings and the layer of dark buildings. The tilt you chose adds interest and the expression in the characters face keeps it light-hearted on an otherwise awe-inspiring mood. The doves balance pockets of light into the very dark night & city and the dress on the character. The weight on the tightrope is well executed, including the convincing posture of the girl. Fingers and wings appear to have a similar theme of curves which ties the piece together. The most impressive piece is the luminary in the sky because of the layers and craters and veins. Its a very balanced composition despite being tilted.

Forgive me but I do not know the definitions of Vision and Originality. Still, it certainly has your favor to it.
