This just made me think of picking up my dip pens again and get practicing. Thank you for the inspiration.

Dat paper is as weak, as wings of those butterflies . The technique of ink on paper is but a mystery to me ; i always thought that it has limits , but your art changed my mind . You do well in this style, i shall stay on your watchers side to see more.

Your art is really really impressive! I particularly love your "pen and ink" drawings, they carry something, i don't know how to put it, let's say they're very poetic in their own way :) So thanks for sharing it with us!

This one looks like it took a lot of time with the use of pointillism in it. I'm always impressed by how much you can portray with just two shades: black and white. You can feel how fragile the wings are and how smooth the armor is.

This is pretty fucking cool. Reminds me of something from one of my favorite game series, Dark Souls

Haha, thanks! I've tried playing Dark Souls, but I'm too much of a casual player to struggle through it. Love the mood of it tho.:)

Ah, yeah. Well, if you don't enjoy it enough the struggle isn't worth it. But, I love it. I'm going to add you to my watch. Looking forward to more of your art.

I love the way you compose ink. Fabulous! Is there a particular kind/brand of ink that you use more often or would recommend for this type of work?

Thank you! There's not a praticular brand, but for me I think the best is indian ink. Though I'm not sure I would recommend anything, it's best to try yourself. :)

This time it was regular drawing paper, too thin for inking and sketching... Now I use bristol paper, still not 100% ok, but I can't find anywhere watercolour paper with perfectly smooth surface.

Have you tried Fabriano hot press? That has the smoothest surface of any watercolour paper I've used.

No, so thanks for letting me know.:) Unfotunately when I ask in art shops about smooth watercolour paper they just don't have any, only with texture..
