I took a little cyanotype class this past weekend, and decided to remake a few of my ink drawings as cyanotypes. ^^"

Original drawing:

Thanks! ^^

Cyanotyping is a photographic process that involves using UV light to expose an image. "Cyan" is a shade of blue, so characteristically, they're blue :)

Basically, if you put an object or a negative on light-sensitive paper, and put it under sunlight or a UV light, the part of the paper that's exposed to the light will turn blue, and the parts that were covered won't and will stay white.

It was often used for copying architectural blueprints (hence why they're called blueprints), and for making really detailed and intricate silhouette images of plants. You can find a lot of examples if you do a Google image search of them ^^

It's interesting to compare these two drawings. The blue somehow looks more mysterious.

Ohh, that is neat; I've mostly compared just the visual aspects between them, but I hadn't thought about how the mood changes with the color/technique. Thanks for taking the time to look at my art ^^

Thanks! Essentially, yes ^^ I've always admired his talent and how he makes painting look so easy. So this can be seen as a little tribute to him ^_^

Thank you! I'm honored you'd compare my work with Craig Thompson's... I read Habibi this past summer, and it's by far one of the most intricately drawn and decorated graphic novels I've ever read. Thank you so much for the kind words; I really appreciate your support ^_^

It takes a lot of patience and practice to use pen. And not being afraid of making mistakes. If I try too hard to be perfect, I feel like I can't draw. Someone once told me that in art, you can't make mistakes. Sometimes things don't turn out the way you intend them to, but it doesn't mean it's a mistake. You can fix it, or just go with it, and see what happens ^^
