The medium is ink on bristol paper. I used the old-fashioned nib pens and dip ink well to draw out each line and detail. Bristol paper is a lovely thick paper that can handle ink and the nib pen without warping.

When I was younger, I was very interested in Japanese manga art and later discovered the gorgeous Korean manhwa series Bride of the Water God. I was very entranced by the artist’s style and attempted to incorporate some of their techniques. To date I have not fleshed out any comic book stories and illustrations, though it is still a future dream. In the meantime, this is one of my earliest creations exploring the genre!
