I finally translated some sketches to "real life" in paints and ink this week. I am not sure where this guy is going or what he is searching for, but he's really intent on finding whatever it is he's looking for.
The only thing I'm frustrated with about working in black and white is the loss of detail after my scans. No matter how I try to adjust the settings, the scan doesn't pick up all the brush pen strokes that I think just makes these pieces perfect. So perhaps working on understanding scanning should be next on my list!
