Cossack Man

Hello everyone,
recently I took this very educative class, about inking and the whole philosophy around that. All the little tricks and materials, so thank you very much Yuko Shimizu for sharing.
That was the first time I experimented with ink and I really loved how powerful the black ink can be on the paper. 
The means I used where watercolour brushes and kuretake ink but I also found the kuretake brushpen handy, because it gives you the feeling of an asian brush but in a small scale.

 The reference of my illustration is a photograph of a Cossack immigrant arriving at New York around 1900, taken from a buzzfeed article (https://www.buzzfeed.com/matthewtucker/colourised-photos-of-ellis-island-immigrants-from-the-ear?utm_term=.dvqEYPjwQj#.uc9KE5Xd7X).

This is the original photo from the article:

My illustration "Cossack Man" based on the photograph:
(Unfortunatelly, I painted it on my sketchbook that's why there's this line in the middle)

So that was my project "Cossack Man" thank you again for that awesome class, I think after that ink and paper will be an unbreakable part of my illustrations.
