to bury future lovers_set 1 by jonesray to bury future lovers_set 1 by jonesray
I kept this image kind of large for the sake of detail, but still... they don't reduce very well. All the fine lines disappear :(. Anyway, here are the other two images in that small series I created. Sumi Ink with Sumi Brushes on Arches Cover cold press watercolor paper. This is part of my last thesis series.

to bury future lovers_set 1 by *liedto is an absolutely gorgeous ink piece, decomposing the image into dynamic backgrounds and keeping the precise elements to make everything work. Don't miss the rest of the ink pieces in this gallery! ( Featured by stigmatattoo )

Your work makes me feel like I am suffocating, yet I cant leave, I want to remain, straining for every sweet breath of air I can struggle obtain.

I don't know why, but when you see things in a set, the effect is that much greater.

love it. i totally know what you mean about fine lines not showing up due to compression... i have a drawing that i did where some of the linework was done with a .005mm tip. needless to say, it didnt show when scanned in.


the work is beautiful. i love the middle frame, i love it when theres a ton of white space that breaks up the image in a good way.

my god this reminds me so on a song text of subway to sally... (Die Rose im Wasser - The rose in the wather)

The first verse is like this:
Im Haar ein Nest von jungen Wasserratten
so treibt ihr schlanker Körper auf der Flut
So bleich und kalt ist sie, daß eine Weide
viel Blätter auf sie weint in stummer Qual

Und rings umher im Wasser blühen Rosen
der Liebsten die roten
die weißsen den Toten
______________________________________________
And translatet it is about this:

In her hear lies a nest of young water rats
so floats her slender body in the flood
she's so pale and cold, and so a willow
cries leaves on her in silent agony

And around her in the whater roses bloom
for your love the red ones
the white for the dead ones

(my english is not that good hope you understand it, took me a while to translate hehe)

even thought you said we can't see the details clearly, I think I can see enough to say that the thin hair lines and other little things makes it look even better with the full view!
