Branching Life by Midniterain
Branching Life
Inspired by a tree I see almost daily.
It should have been here for maybe 70+ years. It's large and ancient looking, covered by moss, climbers and grass. I particularly like how its strong branches stretch over a pond, snaking its way in between other trees. 

Size: A3.. I need a bigger scanner, taking a photograph of it kind of loses its details
Working hr: 4hrs
Medium: Watercolours + colour pencils for final touch ups
To Dissipate by Midniterain
To Dissipate
Let your worries dissipate, let your frustration disperse, let yourself sink beneath the threshold and disappear. 

I rarely ever draw human beings but I just had the random urge to dribble this down. Only with two colours, black pen and red marker.
The Sea Serpent by Midniterain
The Sea Serpent
Original size: A3 
Medium: black pens
Worked on it for 3 months. Outline of serpent is pencil sketched for guiding, then ornate layers were drawn on directly without pencil basing. The aim was for each layer to be different, but there may be some similar ones anyway. 
You could say this is the embodiment of my restlessness, and also a training for me to accept mistakes made along the way.  
Keeping my hands busy and mind focused is when I find peace. 
A forgotten Chinese Village by Midniterain
A forgotten Chinese Village
Drawing something simpler, with just black ink and a single chinese calligraphy brush A style very much different from what I normally do, but I rather like the simplicity and cleanliness. 

Reference: Lai Chi Wo Village in Hong Kong. A forgotten little ancient village tucked away in the wilderness corners of the city. 
Silver Fox by Midniterain
Silver Fox
Technically,  it is a silver melanistic form of the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes). 
It is a rather new discovery for me to learn that it has so many coat colour variations.
Been wanting to draw something other than birds lately and try new mediums and styles. I picked this animal because it has yellow-brown eyes on black fur, strikingly vivid. 
Work hr: 3hrs
Medium: markers and a white-out pen, mainly 8 colour markers (shown at the bottom of the pic) from Faber Castell's Black, Grey and Terra collection.
I really appreciate the faves + comments...
sorry if I seem rather rude if i don't answer your comments
I sometimes just let my account rot
and when I do log in... it's a bit hard to keep up with all the activity.

Hi there, I've used your black cat art work in a montage poster to promote the black cat. Totally non profit. Rescue centres find that people are less interested in adopting black cats, so I've made a little arty poster to distribute around facebook etc. Not published it anywhere yet, thought I should ask your permission if this is okay first.

Still undecided to change the avatar, Mid?
It's been... what?, Four years and three months, more or less?

Glad to see you're still 'round in devART. Lovin' the new art -and photos-. I Hope the Uni isn't holding you much back in art-terms.

Throwin' in a watch, by the way. Account change and all...
