Greetings fellow artists!

I have not been on here in a bit, so i though I'd show you one of the pieces of art which I am working on. I started this last night, I was up until 3 in the morning playing around with a micron pen.


This is a 'study' of possibility of line, creating the illusion of depth and also playing around with perspective.

Medium: Micron .005 Pen
Size: 8x8 inches

Thank you for taking the time to look at it

Very cool! I like the results you get when you play around. I need to do more of that. If only there was more time in the day . . .

I can so agree with you on that Monica. Time is a restriction for many artists, its something we have to work around.What can I say, reality can be insanity. I didnt have time to work on it today, but tomorrow... tomorrow is full of possibilities.

Very nice indeed... I like the illusion. It looks like a rendering of one of the CAD programmes but with a human touch. Let's see how it goes

Nice doodle. I love doodles. for a while, I hadnt posted anything but had a whole bunch of ball pen doodles from my office I was going to post. this got me to thinking, maybe we should do a thread of doodles. Its funny how you can pull a really good idea from them. I agree with Tammamo, looks like a CAD thing.

Has a wonderful feel about it.

Yeah, this is really different from my other work, I think. Heres about 3 more hours of work added.

Some more pointillism added to the universe and a little ball point pen shading to the tree. This is no longer just a study of line, I am incorporating other techniques that I know. lets see how it all comes together

Thank you for looking

Wow, I really like the tree in the middle. It has such volume!

Realityisinsanity

Yeah i really like the tree in the middle as well, i thought it through more so than the tree on the right, that one was more intuitive with a lack of listening to my intuition ha ha

I scanned this at school on a high quality scanner. It was scanned in grey scale rather than color, this is why the contrast looks different.

And another update on my home scanner, the difference is about 500+ dollars in equipment, my scanner was 50 bucks, but it does an alright job.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/22-Oct-2007/49347-OctoberDoodle7.JPG

Hi Val, thank you =)

I think its coming along rather well too.


I actually did a tree tattoo on someone today, i used this kind of line work on it, and it came out looking great. No photograph yet. Its pretty cool to take my art work off of paper and throw it on some skin.

Heres another update, more pointillism added.
Enjoy

This is looking great! I like the tall thing along the let side too. Did you take a pic of the tattoo? It's ink, so it will go here. :p

I like the contrast between the two trees and the landscape. Surrealism meets reality:D

I dont feel that this is complete. but it is finished. I need to try different techniques on achieving depth of space with pointillism covering large areas.

I might have another update but this may just be it.

Hope everyone who was watching enjoyed the progress, i enjoyed creating it.


Peace

Wow ... such a difference since I last peeked in. Awesome work:clap: :clap:
I was wondering how you were going to deal with stars and they are just terrific. Great job

MonicaB

Yeah, pointillism over large areas is tough! But this looks finished to me. I really like how it all pulled together at the end.

Thank you everyone. I will try a similar style again, but I will make it less intuitive and more logical.

I love the line work on the left, the combination of flow and density is excellent! The greatest bit is the way the tree connects with the fabric of the universe. I would prefer the whole picture in the line style, but I understand you are trying out techniques :)

edit - oops didn't see you had finished it on page 2. How did you shade the lines? Could you show a close up of that shading?

This looks very mathmatical. Are you by any chance a Math major?

I just use a very sensitive tip pen. Such as the Zebra. You barely have to touch the paper surface to get a very thin line. I layer the same thin line over and over until I get a darker surface. Hatching in different directions helps create more realistic forms.


Hope this helps, unfortunatly I dont have a large format picture of this drawing.
