Feeding Mr. Snake (Inked Art) by Janusart Feeding Mr. Snake (Inked Art) by Janusart
Original traditinal art slightly inspired by Yusuke Nakamura. This drawing took about 8h to ink, and once again, I really needed to be very meticulous and clean. At the beginning, I didn't really know what to put on the walls and suddenly I thought of the game snake ... there you go ^^. Working on the tiles and the stairs was fun for about 30 min before it turned into a nightmare because of the precision required in order to have a realistic and proportionally correct staircase ...

Bonus: For the first time I added my cat in the drawing. Luckily for me his colors fit my work perfectly ^^

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

---------------------------------------------------------------

Un dessin légèrement inspiré par les travaux de Yusuke Nakamura.

encrage de 8h ... avec un travail sur la perspective difficile à cause des proportion qu'il fallait respecté entre les personnages, les carreaux, les marches ...... Il a fallu une fois de plus etre très attentif à la propreté, surtout au niveau du lining car les traits sont long et nombreux et il fallait pas en louper un seul, mais ouf j'ai réussi ... ^^

Pour rire, j'ai ajouter mon chat dans le dessin. heureusement pour moi, j'ai un chat noir et blanc, donc parfait pour mon dessin ^^

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

Awesome. :) I'm not actually familiar with the game 'Snake', but this does have a kind of retro video game vibe about it which is what attracted me to it. I'm impressed with the attention to accuracy and perspective... it's got some leanings toward Escher. The cat and butterfly seem a bit incongruous in such a scene, but do provide a nice organic, homely kind of contrast to the strict geometrical shapes.

I feel immersed in the picture when I look at it. Like being inside a three dimensional, virtual video game. It's really cool. :aww:

Thanks a lot for your very precise comment. In fact I'm not really big Snake player myself, I just know the concept of the game (which is enought to make a drawing out of it). I indeed wanted to use perspective to give it a kind of psychedelic abstract feeling and the aim of adding the cat & butterfly was indeed to break down the geometrical shapes. Glad you perfectly understood what I tried to do ^^!

le petit détail "chat" rajoute encore plus d'innocence et de douceur à ce dessin en plus de la petite fille qui est adorable

petite question, qui est cette petite fille?

Tu vas être déçu mais personne en particulier contrairement au chat (j'ai du courir après mon chat et prendre sa photo de profil pour être sur que ça lui ressemble le plus possible ^^, à force d'en faire trop, je perd inutilement du temps ...)

While the alternating black and white with vivid pink causes my eyes to flip out, it's very good. Your characters are very nice but the overall patterns hides them at first.

Thanks for your constructive comments as usual ^^. I wanted this drawing to be a bit psychedelic ... I might have overdone it ... I always have problems with adding the characters and merging them with the patterns ...

Mec, celui-ci est superbe. Et on voit enfin que dans l'envers du décor, tu n'es qu'un gros geek. Je ne peux qu'aimer !!

Le truc qui aurait été marrant, ça aurait été de jouer avec la deuxième partie de l'escalier (celle à droite, après le palier) en essayant de faire un trompe-l'oeil qui aurait fait penser que les deux escaliers descendent vers le même point... pas très clair je sais, pas forcément utile non plus mais ça m'aurait fait tripper. A regarder en tout cas, parce qu'à faire..

Merci pour ton commentaire ^^, et je prend le terme geek, même si depuis la prépa j'ai beaucoup dégeeké.

Thanks a lot for you're comment, I'm always asking myself wether I really have my own style or if my work is not just a patchwork of other artists. But comments like yours prove that I'm progressing, thanks a lot ^^! I also took a look at you're wonderful artwork and I'm also gonna watch your work. I also tried to do pencil artwork, but I can't keep it clean enough ^^

So sorry for the extremely late reply!
Nope, you're definitely unique. You've made your medium your own and that is something many artists struggle with. Every artist adds their own recognizable touch to everything they make but not many find the medium that helps them reach their full potential. So many people copy each other instead of exploring and finding what they are good at.
Keep up the awesome work!
