I spent all day yesterday on this piece, mainly the tight detail found in the smoke/ collage/ bubble thing! It is completely made up of ink and this is the first piece I have created on my newly acquired handmade indian paper. Fortunately, the paper soaked the ink up really well and gave it a really authentic quality with the brush strokes still visible.
The intricate detail came after I seen the work of Rob Ryan. This guy is simply amazing and in fact I found a brilliant video of his latest work earlier today... it really is unbelievable the detail he manages to capture.
