Willow Waters: Inks by Ahkward Willow Waters: Inks by Ahkward
EDIT: OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH Kainaa AND Moonbeam13 FOR THE DD! :heart:



Partial commission for BC-Rain of their character Rain of a full color traditional piece.
I wanted to upload the inks as a separate deviation. XD I don't make full color traditional artworks very often, so I'm really going all out on this! :la: Please note the willow branches will be added as I paint over it with white ink and colored ink. So those aren't added in yet. XD Don't worry, they'll be in there.

Tools:
Bristol Paper 11x14
Micron Sakura 01, 03
Copic Pocket Brush Pen

**This will be colored with copic markers, ink, and acrylic.

I really like the thick stems growing up out of the water in the foreground. Nice job!

Man that's pretty cool. Well it's much better than just pretty cool. Haha. Would you be interested in doing some artwork for a comic book possibly?

Do you mean covers or interiors? I actually have a published comic of my own called "Naor" (though it was just released in March) and I have worked on 6 pages of issue #5 of Wicked Awesome tales by Todd Jones and Ron Fortier. So I am already quite comfortable with comics, so note me the information, and I will let you know if I am interested. 

I also apologize in taking time to get back to you. I literally just got to my new home today. I have been in my car the last 12 hours or so. But note me the details and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

It's beautiful so far, the detail in this is stunning. Just look at the bubbles and leaves in the water, and the moss on the branch! Thank you so much for putting so much effort into this commission, I'm so thankful for it <3

Hehe I'm glad! Now I can move forward with coloring. I wanted your approval first. I should be able to start coloring it today or tomorrow. I don't know how long it will take since I've never done something this intense detail wise. lol

I do, I just need to balance commissions with these and comic stuff. Maybe I can start doing these as personal stuff.
