I'm posting up an ink drawing I've been working my ass off for yonkeys, on and off for months.
I'm going to finish it within the next two days, and I realised I'd really benefit from any feedback and constructive crits people on here might have.
The medium is a 0.05mm micron ink pen, on a small 14x10cm paper surface. It's all done with stipling, and I don't want to use anything other than dots, no lines or masses.
Its almost finished, so I don't have much room for changes - but you never know what helpful suggestions might pop up.
I'm particularly concerned about the white areas of the galaxy, I want it all to be bright and make use of patches of bare white, particularly around the center of the galaxy. I envision the rings getting darker as they go out, with the ones close to the centre really brimming with light, though I'm not quite sure thats working right now. I think I shouldn't have added so much texture to the front ring, closest to the viewer, and so things are a bit out of balance now, and I'm contemplating if/how to darken out the rest to compensate.
Thanks a lot for your suggestions
It's cool...doesn't really feel like a galaxy is all. Fun project but I'd simply put aside. If interested in painting a more "accurate" galaxy I would go with a more appropriate medium and technique and rely on a variety of reference as a guide.
Lovely image! I agree with Jeff; call it done and move on. It reminds me of the nuclear chaos at the centre of all realities; Daemon Sultan, Blind Idiot God, Azathoth.
That or the accretion disc of an active black hole!
