Sansui Solitude by vantid Sansui Solitude by vantid
Created for Digital Artist Magazine Issue 30. My assignment was to create a lonely beach done in the Japanese ukiyo-e style. Had a lot of fun painting this, inking took forever.

The birds are tropicbirds and they have super cool tails. I have since done a watercolour painting of the top part of this piece and will post it whenever i get around to scanning it. My editor did a fantastic write up about ukiyo-e sansui paintings and the piece here: [link]

Beautifully smooth work! I love the way you've captured the traditional style in the digital medium. The dragon is simply gorgeous. There are only a few places where the depth might be improved with some sharper, more cell-like shading - but even so, this is beautiful work =) Thanks for the faves btw - it's an honour to have my work appreciated by you ^ ^ *bows*

This is one of the liveliest drawn eastern dragon ever! I love the expression! It makes the dragon look like a living thing instead of just a myth!

That really is fantastic - I love the inking and coloring style. You hit something that is so close to the look of ukiyo-e that I didn't realize it was digital until I read the description. I love the textures on the dragon's scales, too. Beautiful work.
