These are great! I like the looseness of your brushstrokes.

Dela said...

Hey thanks Ana ,I think that I am gettin somewhere with this sumi ink.
this sketches are really fast ,I am really trying to keep them loose.
Cheers Ana

Ana Banana said...

yes, I like loose...the looser the better.

I am trying to break free from painting detail with small brush. I am so bored of it.

I like sumi ink wash...I like ink wash in general.

Dela said...

I know what you mean ,there is something more here and now with sumi, very rustic,refreshing.

Ana Banana said...

I was wondering what the symbols in the top image mean, Dela.

yes, very spontaneous, here and now, ink and brush. Very difficult to do well. I like very much.

okay...back to pretending to work.

I will pester you no more for now.

Dela said...

It is old Slavic lettering named Glagoljica ,it reads Sumi ,like sumi ink.
Thank you very much.

This is the best batch of yer sketches yet (the rest was awesome too, but this is a notch up compared to them, don't ask why I think that tho').
Third one is awesome, and the rest is really cool too.
that stuff seems to be working for you and working good.
Cheers to your skill,

Milenko

Kako spadam u kategoriju velikih ljubitelja, a nažalost nikakvih poznavatelja, imam problema s ostavljanjem komentara. Najčešće i ne komentiram jer što mogu napisati osim ajme super; fenomenalno,…pa to je krasno kao i ona glupača iz istoimene Kiševićeve pjesme koju je Šerbedžija otpjevao na svom albumu "Ne daj se Ines". Evo sad gledam ovog tvog Stifija i divim se i mislim kako je jadan tvrd izvanka a mekan i tužan unutra i kako samo možeš stvoriti ovakav osjećaj napuštenosti i to još tako brzinski. Pa onda si mislim, vidiš i ta Sumi tinta kojom puni one svoje alatke je zaista dobra al što se mene tiče može ih napuniti i crnom kavom (što sam na trenutak i pomislila kad sam vidjela naslov (to si jednom prijetio :)) i meni bi opet bile "krasne"... a vjerojatno si kavom napunio sebe ili one kreature - zato ispadoše onako nervno-emotivne što bi rekao Radovan III. Uglavnom, jedan kofeinski pozdrav i bilježim se sa štovanjem.

Milenko thank you very much my friend ,
this stuff is getting out of control ,it is like throwing the knife ,if you focus on target or on the knife you will miss,the answer is somewhere in the middle and the point is to make that space between the target and the tool wider .He he my childhood in the woods ,we didn't have anything better to do.

Dela said...

Muir ,ova sumi tinta ima i miris ,onako jesenji ,miris predgradja i dimnjaka , vlazan ,maglovit to me malo i fura.Malo vuce na blues.
Hvala ti Muir ,i dobro se provedi na iducem festivalu stripa u Makarskoj.

Ana Banana said...

That is a very good metaphor, Dela...throwing the knife without focusing on target... to explain what you are doing with Sumi. I understand that well.

Ana Banana said...

Thank you for explaining the lettering. It is beautiful. I am also wondering the symbol in the same image, above the lettering and to the right. Is it some sort of directional symbol...you know like...south, north, west, east picture on map?

Dela said...

the symbol is from time when I did "The Mask" comic ,it happened in New Orleans with some voodoo guys .This are that kind of symbols ,just making fun of them.
