The great temple of bonsais (Inked Art) by Janusart The great temple of bonsais (Inked Art) by Janusart
And here is my latest work, and most difficult one. I had to invent everything which means that I used a large amount of sketches to get this result ... It took about one and a half week to draw the sketch and to do the lining, inking and shading. Biggest problem was the choosing the parts to ink and shade in order to keep a nice contrast.

Always the same tools: technical paper CANSON A3, indian ink, STAEDTLER 0.05 liner, and grey FABER CASTELL pens

Please comment my work ^^

Enfin mon dernier travail, et plus complexe à ce jour. Sans aucun modèle, donc j'ai fait une bonne vingtaine de brouillon pour avoir ce resultat. J'ai mis en tout 1,5 semaines pour toutes les étapes de brouillon, line, encrage et ombrage. Le plus dur a été de choisir les parties à encrer et ombrer, tout en conservant les contrasts ... il a fallut aussi etre très propre et précis pour éviter les grosses bétises lors de l'encrage, et il y en a surement, mais j'ai évité le pire

outils: Papier technique CANSON A3, encre de Chine, liner STAEDTLER 0.05 et feutre FABER CASTELL gris

I love it that you have provided contrast not only in light and dark colours but also in the free flowing tree limbs and straight line architecture. It makes the whole work so engaging. I could look at it for aeons! Thank you for posting it

C'est... C'est impressionnant. On comprend que tu y ais passé un temps fou et le rendu final le vaut largement ! C'est très bien réalisé, les quelques nuances de gris sont très agréables et, mondieu, tous ces détails ! A ta place je n'aurais pas eu la patience. Bravo :noes::heart:

Celui qui dit être arrivé au bout du chemin n'a rien compris. C'est justement le chemin qui est important, pas l'arrivée... (qui ne peut exister, d'ailleurs...).

Alors bon courage pour le chemin vers la progression !

Et oui ça penche, et c'est fait exprès, c'est un effet qui je l'avoue rend mieux sur papier, ça facilite l'immersion dans le dessin et fait en faisant perdre au spectateur ses repères(mais pas forcement pour tout le monde ^^), C'est un peu la signature de mes dessins lol. Merci pour ton comm
