Escaping from Reality (Inked Art)

I had a hard time finding the right elements to add to this drawing. 8.15 h of inking. The most difficult part was finding the right elements to add, where to put them, finding the right density of stars in order to maintain a nice contrast, and making the windows of the building without any mistakes ^^.

I also used a new technique, and relined the most important lines with indian ink (more work and more risks, but I love making it harder every time ^^)

Tools: technical paper CANSON A3, indian ink, 0.05 liner STAEDTLER, Red Drawink Ink MAJUSCULE


J'ai eu du mal à déterminer quels éléments mettre dans le dessin et ou les placer. 8h15 d'encrage en tout. Le plus difficile a été de trouver la bonne densité d'étoiles permettant de faire ressortir l'arbre et les bâtiments, et d'encrer les bâtiments sans noircir une fenêtre qui ne devait pas l’être ^^. Mais ouf pas d'erreurs.

Pour rendre la tache encore plus difficile, j'ai décidé sur ce dessin de refaire la majorité des contours à l'encre de chine avec une plume neuve plus fine. Plus de risque et de boulot, mais bon ... J'aime compliquer le boulot à chaque fois ^^.

Outils: Papier technique CANSON A3, encre de Chine, liner STAEDTLER 0.05, Encre à Dessiner Rouge vif MAJUSCULE

@A@ Pretty...
I really like this, it looks gorgeous!
When I get more ink for my printer I might just have to print this out and stick it to my wall, it looks that good. :3
Janusart's avatar
Seriously, I would be soo happy if you did ... such an honor to have my work decorate a wall somewhere in the US, I just have one condition: you take a picture of your room and wall and send it to me !

And don't forget to send me a note before you do, I can send you a image in better quality with a bigger resolution, it'll look even better ^^.

Seriously you can't even imagine how great that would be ^^, thanks for the comment and fav by the way

Reminds me of the Asian Kung-Fu Generation album covers. And I think that's why I pretty much love this.
Janusart's avatar
Yep, the official creator of the album covers is my source of inspiration. I hope you also like this because it simply looks nice ^^
ShardSpyder's avatar
Yes. It looks nice as well. Its just the look of it just made me think back to high school when I listened to their albums all the time.
