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.
Philippine eagle by Midniterain
Philippine eagle
Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi
Critically Endangered
Somewhat inspired by the tragic news of an individual shot dead after its release (it was previously rescued from a gunshot wound, healed, released and shot dead) 
Also, I wanted to try painting on black paper and try a less "realistic" approach in painting the feathers. 
Took around 3 hrs.
Black-headed Seagull by Midniterain
Black-headed Seagull
Another water coloured piece for Hong Kong Bird Watching Society. 
To be printed on round coasters for sale. Profit will go into their conservation projects. 
Rogue Ink by Midniterain
Rogue Ink
Based on a Crested Serpent Eagle... but needless to say, I went crazy with the colours. 
There is just this satisfaction and fascination in watching ink flow and drip across the canvas. 

I used paintbrushes for the face, but for the feathers I just sploshed water onto the paper with a paintbrush and dripped in paint with a pipette and watched it flow. I angled the paper at different directions to somewhat guide its movement. But I think you can see some evidence that it went rogue, but I kind of like it. The thin lines were made by a small pointed plastic stick, which was then replaced by a glass pen that I suddenly remembered that I had (was given as a gift and never had a chance to use it). Finally white paint splashed on by flicking a brush. 

Working hours within 3hr, Size: A3 paper 
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...
