Filipino artist Kerby Rosanes creates hyper-detailed doodles using only his black pens. His magical doodle world is characterized and inspired by whimsical elements (patterns, lines, and characters) combined together to produce beautiful and intricate illustrations.
Here are some of Rosanes’ best works:
The King’s Awakening │ Kerby Rosanes
Coronation │ Kerby Rosanes
Ascension │ Kerby Rosanes
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. I believe this piece was inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s 1984 Japanese post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure film of the same title.

If I am to pick a favorite, this will be it. There are so many elements here yet the artist has managed to combine them all so flawlessly. The concept is as stellar as the artwork itself.
