Samurai

9 Jun
This is ‘Speed III‘ by Jung Shan, who, as far as I understand, draws digitally and then adds actual ink brush strokes :
I sketched the samurai on a Moleskin watercolor book (21×13 cm):
I used a Pentel brushpen for the black strokes and cold grey Faber-Castell brushpens for the rest:
Then I erased the pencil marks, cut diagonally one of my cheap brushes, prepared a lamp black wash, took a deep breath and stoked:

Reproduction of Moebius’ ‘Le garage hermétique de Jerry Cornelius’

7 Jun
I discovered Moebius rather recently. Stéphane raved about him, Virginie was a fan. So when she suggested we all meet in Toulon at the occasion of an exhibit of Moebius’ work, it was a done deal. I was fascinated. All these intricate and thin lines giving life to surrealistic worlds, people and creatures!

 

From one book, I asked Stéphane to choose a few images he liked and this page was my favourite. ‘Le garage hermétique de Jerry Cornelius’:
I sketched a rather precise version in pencil on an A4 white sheet:
Using a Pentel Brushpen, I started inking the straight lines (and later the flying figure as well as the black area around the title at the top):
The rest of the outline I did with a 0.05 mm Uni-ball pin pen:
Tada! Gift ready and framed. The resulting drawing was 16×21 cm:
