ebi art roll

Recommended Posts

I've been very uninspired for a number of years now, and I really struggle to feel any emotion anymore. Loud music and a whole bloody lot of caffeine are about the only thing that allow me to work, albeit very sterile and not on stuff I enjoy.
Getting back into some sort of community...and getting back to VK instead of listening to the same old music I always do, I hope this can propel me in a more positive direction.

Already I've finally been able to pick up a brush again (or I guess in this case, a paint bottle lid lol) thanks to listening to Sukekiyo so I will start my thread with it, though it is unfinished I am just happy to have done something.

Another canvas I've had sitting under a sheet for almost a year. I hope to actually complete

Something from last August. Gold red black and mossy greens are my main love.

I usually do stuff digitally because it's way more efficient and my wrist nerve is fucked up...but it's way harder to get exposure digitally so I've had to move to paint.

ink thing from a couple years back

I guess I'll just post one thing per day from now on to not be too spammy. Maybe it will revitalize me further and then I can post new things.

This stuff is INCREDIBLEEEE

I love your style and I'm so glad to hear you managed to pick up the brush again. Hold on to that feeling and don't let it go. My favourite is the 3rd picture, I can see so many different things in that piece. Also your art kind of reminds of the game Ookami, but a more mature version.

Wow your stuff is amazing. Very abstract and reminds of the brush strokes from Japanese calligraphy with a touch of Ukiyo-e and Bunjinga art. Were those you inspirations?

I don't think this could be considered traditional Japanese but it seems possibly inspired by that style. That's why I was asking in the above post

Ah, thank you ( : I will do my best...I actually read all these messages in the morning and it motivated me a bit. lol sweet, I loved that game and I'm pretty sure I still have some very shoddy pencil drawings of the Water Dragon, Orochi and Ninetails somewhere.

Thanks, both my grandma's had a lot of furniture / paintings / snuff bottles around the house with Bunjinga art on them, but it's not something I ever attempted to do myself. Maybe it influenced me subconsciously over time? haha.

Nah, but it may stem from that I used exclusively ink and pens only for a long period of my life I guess. I don't usually think about anything before I begin something personal. (Unless it's a pre-imagined scene, 2nd pic was one of those. but took a year before I even bought a canvas for it lol.)

Thank you. Ha it's really interesting that people see that in my art, I've really never thought of it to be that way. Maybe it's the colors I use? Being that red with gold accenting is my favorite scheme with pretty much anything + bold black maybe it's unavoidable :grin:
My favorite artists are Wayne Barlowe, Denis Forkas Kostromitin, Francis Bacon, Suehiro Maruo and such. I'll magnetize to anyone who makes or sees things in the same vein as me lol

Tonight's post is...Bloodborne fanart. I'm not really a fanart kind of person  but the game inspired me enough to.

The Snatcher

The Orphan of Kos growing up, and Mother Kos (I like those blacklight fuzz boards)

Also, just after one day of different / positive interaction I've already made arrangements with my cousin that I will do a variant cover for a comic for his friend. One step forward two steps forward :grin:

This looks like stitch work, or pixel work. Love the mood!

Right? I thought so too...but it wasn't intentional haha. I just used dry brush. Thank you

 

Tonight's post is...something I'd like to redo on canvas one day. But I always think, you can't recreate the same feeling you had when you made it the first time.

Tonight's post is...something different.

Now it seems old lol, some from 09/10 when I hyper focused on using only ballpens and highlighters. I had a way shittier low res scanner then and blew most of them out with photoshop. (I've had a long love affair with worms and centipedes..haha long, get it, man I'm not funny.)

Also now I have a new job interview on friday, it would allow me to make more personal stuff and not have to shell out all my energy on boring still-lives.

I'm both excited and filled with fear lol.

Tonight's post is...different. It's my wendigo costume I've used for four years now. Although it didn't turn out exact exact as I wanted it, I am still happy with it since I'd never tried putting together something almost from scratch before.

Initial concept
