I have collected turn of the century French etchings and this has the look and feel of those beautiful etchings. Seymour Haden comes to mind. [link]

Very cool! I've never done etching, but I love markers and pens... :D For my traditional show, I shall do more of these little drawings :D Thanks for letting me know!

That image is spectacular!! Really, really, really, you should try etching. I think it is your calling! Please say you will give it a try. Please. :-) Years from now you will thank me, I promise! :-)

Also, they are very marketable. :-)

Best regards,
Tom

ahaha. Well, I have no studio setup for etching... but I will continue my pen drawings until I find a good opportunity to learn etching properly. Unfortunately I've already graduated university.. looks like I might have to take some classes :D

Don't get me wrong, the pen & inks are even better but the etchings are multiples. :-)

Yep.. but with modern print technology, I scan my doodles and make prints here on dA... I'm not too pressed to etch if that's the only real difference between my pen and inks and the etching is the limited print runs, but I'm curious now to try it, and I love learning new mediums! So, I'll tuck that in my rainy day pocket. :eyes:

Thanks for the suggestion!

No problem. I owned a Haden print that I later gave to my daughter. You might want to look at more of his work.

With etchings and drypoint, you can get what's referred to as a "velvety" look that is desirable to some. Etchings are generally more treasured among the various print forms since it was a popular medium way back when, even with Rembrandt.

I love Microns and I love landscapes, simply because you CAN scribble them. In fact, nothing else works quite as well...for me, at least. I really like the stone wall with it's rebounding light. The water is very nice, too.

Amazing talent. I thought it was a photo from the thumbnail. I've always wondered how people put so much detail in with ink. I can't seem to build up the patience to do it

mynti Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2008  Professional
It does take quite a bit of patience, but it's not talent. This paper is very small and yet it took a few hours. :lol: The key is the pencil sketch to plan your composition, it makes things easier. I erase it when an area is a little developed, and go from there.

You can try it out with simpler objects first and get the hang of it.. small sketches are just fine for getting the basic values of any situation. I've been drawing for a long time, that's all. It's practice at looking at what is, and not what you think it is. Anyone can learn to draw, but I will admit it takes some time and patience. :giggle:

:glomp:

Go for it, if you want! Why not :D

That can't possibly be a 'scribble'! It's so detailed and overall, just amazing! Or, upon looking very closely at it, I can see what you mean by 'scribble', but still. It kinda gives me a 'The Ring' feeling, if you've seen any of those movies:) Astonishing well done, you're such a great artist:aww:

:iconmynti:
mynti Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2008  Professional
Heh, I haven't seen the ring, no, but I'll take your word for it. Still, it certainly is a whole lot of scribbles mostly, that's why I'm calling the series "scribblism" :giggle: I have quite a few of these by now, although this one is my favorite so far.
