Kangastus by evelmiina Kangastus by evelmiina
He collects the screams of burning men.

Ink and white gouache.

Kangastus is finnish and means mirage, but verb "kangistua" means "to petrify" and "kangas" could be "textile" or "canvas"...so I just liked the word better

Ah that's cool! It's so tiny though, wish it were twice as big to really get a look at that texture

Happy to hear you like it! I haven't painted anything with ink in ages, and first time I tried out spraying water on paper while painting.

Reminds me of something from Princess Mononoke.
I love how you have only used black and white.
