IMPORTANT NOTE: All images are copy written by B. de Corbin and/or Splendid Fish Studio. B. de Corbin and Splendid Fish Studio give you express permission to use the art within this site for your own, personal, non-commercial purposes, provided the copy write notice is displayed with the artwork. If you use one or more of these pieces on a web page, you must include a link to the home page of this site. You may not use the art, or any part of any piece of art from these pages, to create any product which will be sold, or used to promote or advertise any product or service involving payment or barter.
If in doubt as to where your intended use falls within this description, please contact me for clarification. Acquiring any of this art in any way indicates your agreement with these terms.
Another technique I like is to add color to a line drawing by the use of either water colors or colored pencils. Colored pencils give me great control over exactly what I want the colors to do, while watercolors are a bit more spontaneous and slightly unpredictable. Here you will find those pieces colored with pencil. Those colored with watercolors are on the painting page.
You might be interested to know that some of these drawings were done to illustrate manuscript (hand written) books of my poetry. When that is the case, the link that takes you to the downloadable art will also take you to the poem. Feel free to download the art and the poem, download the art and read the poem, download the art and ignore the poem, read the poem and ignore the art, or ignore both the art and the poem. I suppose you could download either and then burn it in contempt, but that seems like a weird activity and probably indicates some sort of mental aberration. If you find yourself doing this more than occasionally, seek the expert advice of a mental health professional.
As with the woodcuts, I would suggest that you use a textured resume paper. Stay away from colored papers for anything other than an uncolored line drawing. Those drawings which are done strictly in black ink on white paper often look good on the parchment-like papers usually sold in office supply stores. On the other hand, if there is any color on the drawing at all, it is best to go with a white paper so as not to darken or distort the colors in the picture.
In the description below each thumbnail I will give the original size of the drawing. In most cases the size of the original is the same as the size of the copy you will download, which should fit on a standard sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper.
