Landscapes





These are some landscapes I did in a small sketchbook a few years ago. I decided not to bother tarting 'em up in photoshop. I don't think it's cheating to use photoshop at all but maybe things are more interesting left as they are. I'm not sure really.

I really like these Zeke, and I completely agree, no Photoshop needed here!

Thanks chaps, it's hard to remember exactly what they were done with. I think chinagraph pencils and biro pens were used along with different markers.

These are really cool. Kind of reminds me of Druilliet meets gary panter. I'd love to see some larger scale ones too.

Great surreal landscapes, the cross hatching gives off an almost impressionistic Van Gogh vibe. Van Gogh meets Fantastic Planet, I love it!

Cheers!. Being involved in EBD does increasingly feel like having a peer group and it's really great to get the opinions of fellow Duckers.
Aeron: these were done as roughs for oil paintings that were inspired a bit by Van Gogh, I don't own the paintings but will try and get photos of 'em posted.
