I love dip pens! And this piece is amazing! Did you use a reference photo?
Oops, I see a mistake, right above the head of the dear on the left, there's just a patch of white, but in the reflection in the water, there's a stick rising out of its ear.
The complexity of it isn't very consistent, though, since the far bank is almost all white and featureless. I would suggest just a few dark lines to imply trees. (as you did with those faint trees just above and behind the deer on the right)
Awesome work!

This is taking me back to when I was a child and read a series of book written by a French lady who lived in the mid 1800s. Her name was "La Comtesse de Ségur". I have the entire collection of her books which where so beautifully illustrated with drawings using the same technique as yours. I spent a lot of time just observing the intricate details of the illustrations found throughout each book and I remember being in awe by how well the lights and the shadows were rendered.

The link below will take you to a webpage which is in French. If you don't speak French, I'm sure you will nonetheless find interest in the illustrations shown further down on the page.

Great job and thank you for bringing back some incredibly dear childhood memories.

Rémi :peace:

This is the style that got me interested in art to begin with. What stuck me about your's was two fold.

One I'm moving back to the country and scenes like this I have missed for over 20 years.

Two, I can tell this is a style you love, it shows through.

Thanks for your vision!

Have you thought about trying this as a lino, or maybe a zinc etching?
Meh, forget that, it's perfect as it is!
Again, just amazing, I have to stop commenting all your awesome art... *drags fingers away from keys*

Maybe someday I'll try something like this for lino. As for now I have problems with adding tiny details..
I'm glad that you like it and thanks for your comments! :)

I think this one is my new favorite :D

I love all your black and white pieces, and every time you put a new one up it really inspires me to improve my own inking skills.
I really admire your technique. I hope I can become at least half as good as you :)

I really love the details on the water and the reflection of the deer... but is it just me or does the reflection look like a unicorn? Love it! :heart:

Ah!
In my design class I was forced to use the fancy pens with real black ink for the first time.
I also really like it too :)
We had to do all kinds of small pictures in hatching, cross-hatching, and other mark thingys, so when I saw this I got really excited haha

This really is lovely. I especially like the reflections, how you did the bg, and you ability to keep those tiny white spaces in- they really add realistic look to the picture :)

FOR SOMETHING SO WONDERFUL...
I'm SO disappointed only ONE other person has seen into the water!:(

This style is a rare treat to see in this generation!:happycry:


Perhaps...its only a few, rare individuals...that KNOW where to truly look to see the hidden truths to a piece of this mysterious, and wondrous beauty.;)

Does the reflection of that doe have a unicorn-like horn on its head, or is it just my imagination?! That is a really nice touch if it was intended! :D

Either way, it's beautiful!
