Oh, I do adore inkwork, and this is just phenomenal! The textures must have taken hours, and I love the overall mood I get from this; solitude, depression, suppressed anger and wrath! ~ Gives me chills ~
And I love the bold use of negative space; it looks like a bolt of lightning.
well, it does to me too... but I guess, one wonders if there is one story in particular. Especially because of the title. But since you've said it could be many I don't wonder anymore- I go with the one I like the most at the moment!
Sounds good to me. I often have something specific in mind to seed a piece, but the point of most of my work is to allow story-telling interpretation by the viewer. This one I was undecided as I was making it whether this was a vengeful smiting sort of deal or something more constructive.
I'm currently trying to figure out what I want to do next, but I did recently illustrate this. It's a little different in flavor from my usual work, but it I think it ended up being a good project. Anything in particular you would like to see?
