oh. so, where do you get the pens from? If you know how you could get it from Singapore or from the net, could you tell me how? If not, do you have any other pens/color pencils/markers which you can buy from there?
Hmm. I live in the U.S. so I'm not quite sure. Maybe you can take a look at this? [link] The company that makes the pens is Sakura, which is originally a Japanese brand...maybe they ship to Singapore. ^^
There are lots of good things to be said about this piece of artwork. The pattern in the background is very engaging and gives your piece a sense of movement and energy even though the subject is fairly stationary. The lower edge of the overcoat is really impressive to me. You have a lot of wrinkles to keep up with, but it has that sense of being lighter sort of skirt-like material because of the way it folds. It appears to be a different fabric than the majority of the coat though because of all the wrinkles. You have that dividing stitch sort of line where all of the wrinkled really start manifesting. I don't know if that was purposeful on your part or not, but it would really make an interesting coat, especially if they were different colors. My suggestion for your art would be to differentiate the wrinkles on the lower right because they are very close to the same size everywhere, which you did vary on the other side of the coat. The only other thing that I can see here that is a little off is that it doesn't seem like you have a concentrated light source. Some of the shadows seem a little off. The one on the roll of the sleeve is the one that I notice the most though it doesn't really detract from the piece as a whole.
Other than that, I love the scarf. The striping details are wonderful. The little lines that denote breath on a cold day are a great choice. I think you've got a lot going with this one. It's a very simple design, but you've made it quite elaborate with all of your added details and I really enjoy your style choices. I almost wish that there was just a hint of color in parts of it. Maybe to put it into Photoshop and simply have color in the shadow hatchmarks to give it some color flavor. Just a suggestion and it's certainly beautiful just the way it is. Thank you so much for sharing your art and keep up the great work!
