Over Look by ZombieHun Over Look by ZombieHun
Finished illustration of a dream I had. In my dream my wish was to retire atop the tallest extinct volcano so I could look over everything and have a higher take off point :lol:

11X15" 005 micron pen on water color paper

This is excellent -- skilled use of pen, 'realistic' anatomy, good composition, and I just noticed the farm fields far below his wing.

<Noise> WHY NOT USE A DIP PEN. DO YOU HATE LINE VARIATION? </Noise>

'Hatching is so early 90's. Everyone uses block shading and rubbed spattering now. Get with it!

That said your hatching is still very good. I like the detail in the little village below. It's very very nice.

noise pretty much beat my ass when he saw my earlier pen art when i was trying something i felt i could grasp....i wish he was more informational to help me instead of basically tearing me a new asshole :/ that was the only time i didn't like him and didn't learn.

the dip pen is omitted on purpose. i'm playing around with making my lines look subtly crappy and not crisp. to go with the more organic quality i'm trying to achieve.

You're treading a thin line between subtly and "the pen ran out of ink," I hope you packed a lunch.

I can't wait to see them! You have such an enchanting style. Your illustrations look like they could be from fairtales and legends of old. It would be awesome for you to illustrate an Aesop fable! c:

yeah, that would be cool to do some Aesop fable illustrations, it would certainly be a neat series and be a focused project for me :) but for now i think i'll stick with my dreams, those haven't been over done :lol:

If you ever do illustrate some Aesop fables I would be interested in even commissioning one! (I adore Aesop's Fables I swear I have read them dozens upon dozens of times!)
But yes, please stick with what your heart desires. Your dreams sound so interesting and even spiritual. c:

Man, I wish I had dreams like that. My dreams are usually completely random and make no sense whats-so-ever and on the rare times I do have a good dream the details are fuzzy when I wake up. It's probably because I do most of my dreaming during the day, not the best habit I know, but at the end of the day my brain needs a break.

Ho.Ly.CRAP That is so awesome. This has been taking my break away every time you sent me a wip and to see this thing completed... Just WOW. You can coax so so much detail out of a piece with the textures you put into your pieces and I adrore seeing each and every line in them <3 The mountain tops and the rocks that the dragon is perched on is particularly awesome in my opinion on this one.
