Now here is a picture that I am proud of! This where I let the inks take control of the picture. I have always been conservative with the blacks of my pictures in the past. Now I am letting more and more blacks into the picture and letting them construct the figure and the setting more. It is a tricky and risky thing to do, but if it executed well, then it makes the whole thing look beautiful.

Tarzan gave me a challenge. Not necessarily because of his figure, he is easy, but because of the trees and the bushes. The bushes had to look textured and wild enough to imply the leaves. That means that the inks are not always perfect. Sometimes they are spotty, to give it the haggard look, implying that the lighting is not perfect. You can see that at the top of the tree above Tarzan's head.
