Van Mieu by splendidriver Van Mieu by splendidriver
#Edit# Finally, this one reached 100 faves :D

Sometimes I don't feel good with some of my art work, and most of them were hidden cuz I was too ashamed of myself for making them that bad.

This is one of them, my last term ink pen exercise last year.

I was holding a great hope that this would be a great stuff. But it didn't came out as I'd expected. I can say this is the worst ink pen landscape I've ever done.

Ok, to talk about the scene. This is a corner in Van Mieu Quoc Tu Giam in Hanoi, that's the first University ever of Vietnamese history, where many ancient talents were trained.

Nowadays, it is considered one of the best scene of beauty of Vietnam and is one of the places that most of the foreign tourists come to see firstly when they visit Vietnam.

i think it looks great! don't be too hard on yourself! it has great details, and you even managed to capture the wood shadings so nicely! i especially like the fact that you have different types of shrubs there. makes everything more natural looking, as most artist just sticks with one type!lol.

it just needs more exposure to more people. so just join some DA inking/landscape/manga paneling club, am sure the faves will escalate^^!

No, lol :laughing:, in someway ( _ _0) When I've studied there, they called it HUCE :P. It's a story. "Hanoi" for 1st char, but few years later, people think it's unique, it's only one Civil University in whole country. So they remove Hanoi, it became UCE. And next couble months, they feel something wrong with that name again. So they add "National" to first place. And it become NUCE. My god, I've just stayed in there 5 years, how many time did they change a university name?? ^^; Btw, I belong old generation student, it's 48KD.

ah, I know, not so far I say :D, haha, my parents know some from your generation. You can call it NUDE now, National University of Dumbshit Engineering :) (only available among students, haha) And yeah, I knew all the old names :D, but NUDE is cool ya know, lol :D

Well, surely your parents don't know me. I'm kinda regular student... Btw, are you a teacher son? Oh, it'd be convenient :D (just kidding :D). NUDE's cool but unsuitable for people when someone honestly ask about your university name :Laughing:.

I really like this :) The shading is very well done; you have a skill for it. This is one of the first pieces on DA where I've been able to appreciate cross-hatching because it doesn't distract away from the piece's overall feel.

And the amount of detail is just...WOW. :wow:

I really like this picture, the only thing that throws it off from being completely realistic, is the center of the drum and the tree farthest to the left.

But great job! Shouldn't be so hard on yourself. =P

This is great stuff

By all means work to improve whatever you think is lacking, but please don't talk about shame. Maybe it's a language thing, but that's just silly :P

:iconsplendidriver:
splendidriver Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, it was a shame. No that's not language problem, cuz seriously, I don't think this is the best I can do, and I really don't want people to see it. I was ashamed of myself. But well, the reaction from you guys is really unexpected to me :D
