Garrus Sumie style by MyCKs Garrus Sumie style by MyCKs
So.. this is Garrus. My almost favorite guy in the Mass Effect universe. In Sumi/watercolor combo.
Calligraphy reads: trust.

Did I overdo the blue blood splashes? Maybe so.... haha

Love the Kinji and splattering touch it' really adds intensity to the entire work and Garrus is spot on! ;)

I adore the style myself. It manages to be both delicate and bold at the same time without a ton of the unnecessary clutter. You capture the feel of it perfectly. I looked at all of the ones in your gallery but the Garrus one really popped to me. I look forward to seeing more.

Garrus was one of the first ones I did for Mass Effect. Had loads of fun painting him.

I love this style of artwork, and you implement it beautifully. There's just something very dramatic about painting with ink....

Yeah I really like the ink splashes and lines. Sort of like instant gratification in painting :D

I just love adding those splashes in the end :)
Sometimes I do overdo it, and you know since this is real paint, it's too late when that happens and I can't do anything about it. But that's the beauty of traditional painting I guess :)

Ah, of course. I don't think I could ever do well with traditional paints myself. I'd make so many silly mistakes and would have to start all over a gazillion times, lol. :)

But I really think they looked great in this piece, so you did well. :)

Yep, so I feel so much potential for the digital media, and wanna try it, but really, I have not much time.. :D I do try them on occasion though. Wish I had more than 24 hours in a day.. ><

Don't we all. :) It's funny though, I would say the exact same thing about traditional art. It just seems to take forever! Or at least from what I remember from the past.

Well, here's hoping we both get a chance to try the other art style sooner or later. :)
