Mirrors in Ink by KrisCynical Mirrors in Ink by KrisCynical
From the fic "Mirrors" [link] by BlackMamba07... an ink painting of Inuyasha by an older Shippou. It means more if you've actually read the fic, of course. I looked up information and examples of Japanese ink painting in order to try and emulate it since I've never done anything like it before... I'm decently happy with the results and it was a definite change from my "norm".

Oh, and the little red signature is the best I could do for Shippou with the kanji reference I could find. If its incorrect, please excuse. Hopefully its too tiny to matter.

Lovely!

I thought right before I scrolled down to your caption, "Wow, it looks like a Japanese-style ink illustration. I've never seen an Inuyasha fanart that did that..."

Talented, truly.

You did a great job making it look like an ink painting. Especially with the darker strokes in his pants.

This is gorgeous. My friend and I had the exact same response which is difficult to put in type but I love the style of art in this. It's kind of old and archaic. I love it.

Oh, this is lovely. Yanno, the thought that Shippo would grow up to be an ink painter never occured to me, but now that I think about it, it's really obvious.

This is beautifully done. It feels like the pieces I have seen in the past (ink pieces), you have done a wonderful job of copying the style. I look forward to you making this into a print.

eh, the 2nd part of Shippou's name looks a tad bit wonky, but still legable :D
I do like the traditional flow-ness of it.

I love the ink style. I think for Shippo's drawing style and and the ink design for the fedual era looks good. I like the shading job on Inu-Yasha. His hair looks so neat too! Great job.

Oh, I started reading that. I suppose I'll have to finish it! Really lovely ink portrait you've done, I love the ancient-artsy feel. And of course I always love when you draw InuYasha.
