Journal History

Sumi/watercolor combo HOW-TO


Monochromatic Original Ink Drawing
I usually take commissions via Etsy and others, but looks like I can do this here on Deviantart also, so here we go ^^

Monochromatic (black and white) sumi ink drawing of the character of your choice, concept, oc, samurai-fying, etc. The size of the piece will be 8.5"x11". Only one detailed character per piece. 

MEDIUM: Ink and ink wash on high quality watercolor paper

(1) commission concept, ideas, references to be discussed
(2) preliminary sketch - to be confirmed by you before proceeding to final
(3) final ink drawing - once confirmed (I will ask you for final adjustments and what not), the original piece will be shipped to you :-)

There are slow months and busy months. But the average time from the start of the commission to shipment is usually around 1 ~ 1.5 months. 

Ask me any questions you have before committing ^^

Thanks for taking your time to look :D

Uther the Lightbringer from WoW
Ink drawing fanart of Uther from WoW :-)
Used brush pen and sumi ink~~

Uber fun on the hammer part!

Another reward for a kind Patreon ^^
Korra from Legend of Korra
Ink sketch of the month, to be won by a randomly selected Patreon ^^ 

Painted using:
Brush pen and sumi ink

This one was fun!
Painted it while my cat tried desperately to intercept my brushes. He somehow likes the smell of sumi ink... ><
He kept on trying to lick the tip of my brush while balancing on one of my crossed legs. 

Actually recorded this one so someday I will upload that over at youtube :-)

Ok, since I made Geralt samurai and even Letho, I had to complete the set (?) by painting Ciri..of course in Samurai!

Calligraphy: Family -- thinking on her background, also her real family being the Witchers :-)
Bonus-card-mod by MyCKs
Hello! Hope your summer is going good ^^
I for one went for a week and a half long road trip down the East Coast and hit up the tip of the Key West in Florida. It was awesome :-)

BTW, I had been working with the awesome people at New Experience Workshop on this one samurai card game, called the Showdown! 
here -->…

I think they are planning on kickstarter for this, so I'll keep you updated ^^ 

Have a happy rest of August~~

Hi! Sorry for the fave spam, but I really like your style! Do you think you would ever make some drawings with characters from Overwatch? There are more than a few that would look great in your style! :D

EDIT: oh, I saw you already did some (e.g. Roadhog), I'm looking forward for more :D
MyCKs Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Hi! thank you so much for your kind words~~ ^^
As you saw, I did Roadhog, and also, oh and also female version Hanzo ^^ Might do more, but my request list is quite long.. hehe :-)
patmax17 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

I really liked your korra painting too ^^
