Cracked Slab by TomSoya Cracked Slab by TomSoya
Ink on Board (ballpoint/biro, dip-pen, marker, sharpies and a variety of drawing pens.) A2 size. I fancied getting back into black and white ink work and a friend has a new band so I thought I'd do some artwork for that. There was no plan and no limits... he wanted something "dark" and this is what he got...

I enjoy the play of light vs dark with this, and how you've used values to keep this piece from feeling too chaotic.

What is this? A portrait of Slenderman's ancestors?

Unique style. Personally not my kinda thing, but it is interesting the way you designed it.

This is so amazing!
I can't believe that this is even possible by using only traditional Tools instead of Computers.
I admire your skills and your Fantasy - this is is both beautiful and a bit creepy.
It reminds me a Little bit of vodoo if you asked me :)
Very well done!

This is incredible!  It really has a nice cubist feel to it but it's also really modern in a way because of how dark it is.  I like how all these figures just slowly come out from the darkness and make them known to us.  It's all very creepy but also very beautiful, wonderful work!
