Still life - Chinese Ink by splendidriver Still life - Chinese Ink by splendidriver
What a shame on me. Lemme tell ya this, it's been a long time since I've done some great still life stuffs like this, and god damn, I messed it up right at the last seconds.

What you're seeing is something that was edited with Photoshop, you can compare to the real thing here [link]

This dirty stuffs don't affect the main objects but they make the whole things go down :(. And yeah, after using PS to edit that corner, and here we go, we have a nice and clean picture. But that's a shame since this is totally traditional art :(. It was not much, but regretable, terrible mistake that I made

I was happy about it enough till my mom said it wasn't enough contrast, and I listened to her, to put it some more darkness and... :((, oh my. The reason is may be because the paper was too old or because when I was pasting the paper to the board, some glue got into the drawing area. How dumb I am.

I hope you guys will forgive me for this shame and still fave it. Thank you so much, oh my, I should go and die for this.

A3 paper on board, Chinese ink, search it on wikipedia and you'll get it :)

He's doing great, thank you for asking. He is massively into Bakugan Battle Rollers at the moment which are a really clever toy for little boys. The poor mite has broken a couple of them and keeps losing them in a typical four-year-old way then getting terribly excited when he finds them again when he's exploring for monsters under the settee lol. How are you keeping? Lou
