Sacrificial Fire by mariosvonkerpen Sacrificial Fire by mariosvonkerpen
9" X 12", Micron pen .005, 2010.

I used some photos I found for reference, and attempted to draw the patterns accurately with some improvisation and inaccuaracy.

oh thanks... I'm glad you like it. That was one of the first ones where I was trying to just draw the patterns from the reference photos accurately, but of course I fucked up a lot...but it was really fun to get into.

I don't think you fucked up, the way you draw all of those little details is incredible ! Actually it's been getting me want to do some more charcoal drawings, I looked at this drawing after I got home from a long adventure through some trails in the country side and it hit me really hard,you got the mood I had walking through those trails perfectly , I find your work very inspiring as well ! Honestly !

I love your pieces with the crows the best, along with a skull makes it perfect.

My pleasure & glad you like them.
By the way, I always wanted to ask you something about your art, so here it is...
When you draw, do you only use dots for the stuff?! Like, I can't find any line in them...

On the purely stippled ones, I did a light pencil sketch, and then slowly added dots.

Thanks. If you just draw a little bit at a time and don't think about finishing, eventually it will be done. I like the stuff on soundcloud, especially the Arrested Army.
