Chaos of Reason (WIP)

I've been posting in the abstract forum. Since all my work is in pen & ink, thought I'd post here as well.

20 x 30 inches

Any comments / suggestions / questions welcome.

Thanks,

Justin

Hi Justin and welcome. I'm so glad you did post -- this is wonderful. It's one of those pieces I could spend hours looking at, finding new stuff.

Welcome to the Pen and Ink Forum Justin.
Wow, this really has some work in it. Great texture and shading, and so much to look at. So glad you came on over to our Forum.

Val.

Re: Chaos of Reason (WIP)

MonicaB- Thanks for your comment!

Val- Thanks!

Vegas Art Guy- Lol... On and Off for a year... Most of the work has been done in the past month, as I've been puting this one off for other projects. Anywhere from 100-200 hours have been put into this (I'm not really sure...) I actually have to finish it ASAP for an upcoming show. I've learned quite a bit from this one piece, probably more than anything else I've done combined...

Re: Chaos of Reason (WIP)

Welcome to the P&I forum, Justin. This is a fantastic abstract, and I can see how you could put 100+ hours into it. Your values are great, and I love all the elements of the piece. I hope that you will share future pieces with us as well.

Re: Chaos of Reason (WIP)

This is awesome, Justin! This reminds me of something similar to what I would've done when I was your age. (especially the time spent.. I'm a nut like that also! ) I can understand how you've learned from this, and I predict you're going to have a great "inking career" ahead of you! And keep the updates coming.. even if it takes 2 more years! We don't mind!

Re: Chaos of Reason (WIP)

sassybird- Thanks!

artistdbs - Thanks alot! It's actually almost done! (Finally!) I'll post an update soon... It's taken so long because I've been working on smaller pieces to build skill / portfolio for galleries (and I still have a long way to go). This piece has been really anxious because it had no initial form / sketch / idea to it (other than to be chaos)... so every line was a hit or miss to totally screw it up... Thank you for your foilage tutorial, I've actually started experimenting with the scribbling technique now, and it's proving to be quite an effective texture!
