new ink "transporter"

Great concepts, I wonder how a mid tone grey ink wash would look run over some of these ink drawings of yours? I don't do a lot of full ink drawings but it's something I've thought about, figuring out what portion of water plus how many drops of india ink would equal a certain shade of grey.

Im glad you like it, as far as the ink wash stuff i have used it in a couple of my previous inks ,you could probably find them somewhere on my bloge, piece like "arabia" or "baths". However I like to use it at my own discretion

Do you write text related to these images? I think that could be really great.
I'm torn, sometimes, because on the one hand I think sometimes a tightening up might be in order with your drawing, where forms are made more distinct, but on the other, the loose quality can be really striking and original.
All in all though, I really like your drawing.

uland - thanks, i think I understand what you mean & and I appreciate your honesty, Im always trying to get better, still this is just how i draw i suppose, and it works with some inks more than with others. Im simply pressing on forward with ideas and production.

Great idea to have the corpse in the head that way.

I think a color or gray wash - flatly applied - could organize or emphasize the details into a strong "designey" way... just a suggestion, after what Aeron and Uland mentioned.

Not that it necessarily needs it -- I think your stuff looks great as is, and love the concepts behind it all. I'm really envious of anyone who can create a "world" with their body of work.
