Skye by Ahkward Skye by Ahkward
Traditional ink/pencil for shaina773 of her character Skye. Thanks for ordering! It has some touches of color, far more present in the original. :D Just faint bits.

I'm using: ink washes, bottled ink, water soluble carbon, pencil, white gouache, marker

Wow this is so beautiful!! I really love it a lot! You did such an amazing job! I adore your work! Touches of color are so perfect too! I love the lighting and tones ahh I cannot wait to even receive it and frame it! :D Thank you a ton for doing this! It is stunning and I can't get over how perfect it is! 

Also I just found out I move on the 6th of August, so it wouldn't really be ideal to get you to ship it to me yet, but I can't remember when you move, because I wouldn't want you to have to move with it. I can figure something out though, maybe my mom will let me ship it to her and I can let you know? I will note you when I talk to her C:

Good! I'm glad you love it! :D The whole paper is about 11x17 just as a heads up.

I leave for Colorado on the 31st of July, so I'll be forced to move with it unless I ship it to her. It's not an issue, I'm pretty skilled moving with artwork.

I really like how you used the white space in this for water.

Thanks! I've noticed a lot of photos water tends to be blurry patches and so I tried to give them a little bit of form, while not to much.

That's an excellent observation! I'll be sure to try looking at water that way the next time I try drawing.

Ink is definitely a tricky medium to work in, it's not very forgiving in most cases, but once you learn you you best use it for your own work, it can yield some really awesome things.

Turned out as great as I thought it would.
This is the reason I watched you to begin with,
such beautiful inking and detail.
Your work is always so unique and amazing wether it be traditional or digital, you have one of the best styles I've ever seen. I know you will become an important artist because you deserve it, you're so talented. 
Keep up the great work.

I really wanna keep doing traditional work. I feel I'm at my best when working traditionally, especially mentally. Being mentally involved and motivated is so important for me since money barely motivates me. XD I'm glad you like it. ;u;

Do what makes you happy. You don't have to cater to the public, there are people that will pay for what you do just as much as they would for digital. If I'm going to pay for something then I want the actual art work physically in my hands or able to touch it.

I've been inking on a decent basis for.... 2-3 years now? It's really a great way to zone out and relax. :D
