Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Still working on the doorway arch. Hard to believe I haven't flitted off to another project already, but this one has turned into an excellent challenge with all the shadows and highlights. After doing a line trace of the original photo, I've been using a simple round, black brush tip with varying flow to get the deep, dark shadows and sense of depth. Here's the next stage:

I've turned the water colour wash off for awhile so I can concentrate on just the ink effect.  I'm saving each stage, so far 15 shots, so I can pull them together on an animated gif to show the work as it progresses. When I finish the art, I'll post it for you.
