Re: Fountain Pen and Ink work

The sky, rocks and roc - excellent drawing of the different textures.
I think if you just round off sinbad's face/head a little he'll look better.

Re: Fountain Pen and Ink work

Yeah I agree with Maureen , basically an excellent job but you can't bluff your way on the human figure too far, & expect to get away with it !
The line of the centre of the eye balls comes half way down from the top of the skull (without hair) to the chin looking straight on !
But don't worry , awareness of just a few very simple anatomical facts such as this will permit you great latitude & freedom in your characterisation.
Altogether you've caught a great feel inthis work though.

Another enjoyable experience with the fountain pen. Did this back in August. Still learning but now getting more confident. Still seems to rotate the picture on upload - a little annoying but I can't seem to resolve it.

Re: Fountain Pen and Ink work

Brian, my eyes are reeling. These are fantastic. You're still striving? Sound like a perfectionist, because every one of them is gorgeous and publishable. These should be published. The mastery you have of texture and line is breathtaking, your rendering is incredible, it's beautiful. This is the kind of thing I strive to do and don't really manage most of the time. I'm awed.

Are you actually from this century, or were you jumping in the time machine from the late 1800s? It's glorious!

LOVE your stuff - and you're doing it all with fountain pens. I just bought a new Conklin one that came with a bottle of Monteverde ink - a really nice, shapely bottle huge at the bottom that won't tip over - and I'm just starting to play with it for line drawing. You've got flawless stippling pointillism or line work or texture work... it's just incredible. I've got a long way to go in everything but cat rendering... that I'm pretty good at. But I need to go farther even with cats!

Thank you Robert, kind words indeed. Yes I'm still practising. I always acknowledge where I get my ideas from.
