I posted this a while back in the General forums but now that
we have an Ink forum I thought I would share it with you all.

Done one wet Sunday to pass the time what do you all think?

Its ink using a 0.25 nib pen

Hi Mark. I don't remember seeing this one. Weekend Retreat eh?...hmmm...my kind of place :) Where do you get your ideas from?? Really like your "fantasy type" themes. Always enjoy viewing your work. I am hoping work will slow down for me soon. Haven't had time to work on my art for over two months now...it's killing me....arghhh!!! :crying:

Hi Mark!

This is a very interesting drawing. The more I looked, the more I saw. From across the room it looked like a dragon!

Really neat idea! I'm gonna go back for another look.

Did you plan it all in advance, or did you let it kind of take form as you went along?

I have enjoyed looking at it very much! I'll be watching for your posts!

Hi MarkL - so glad you posted this in the ink forum. I really enjoyed studying all the different textures, tones, and surfaces.

Hi all and thanks for looking
Ill try to answer your questions

artdude - Ideas? dont know they just come out of the pen

dupliKate - Plan? No I generally just start with a bunch of dots and see what happens. This picture started from the trees as shown in the attached image

RuthT - Thanks, its amazing what a few different placements can produce

Cool drawing, I love it. I don't have the patients to put that many dots down...I get impatient and start drawing regular style.....

I've come back to look at this a few times. Each time, I seem to notice a detail that I hadn't noticed before. A very enjoyable piece.
