Tattoos

A little update just to show people I draw more than hair. Here are two tattoo commissions I did for my co-workers. To see brainstorm sketches, go to my sketchbook blog posts here and here. They can also be seen in full on my website.

These were fun! Tattoos are a beautiful way to immortalize one’s deepest and personal memory. Someday, I’ll get one too.

Slow progress is very slow, but I’m updating because I was enjoying my nice day off. Also, I’m learning that slow isn’t always a bad thing. Working slow is preventing me from rushing into conclusion and helping be build up the quality in drawing.

Knowing me, I probably could have finished this piece by the end of today.  I love it when I reach a meditative state with a piece. When I’m in the zone with my drawing, especially with the music on in the background, the rest of the world disappears. However, reality kicks in when my stomach and bladder demands to be treated.

Hair and charcoal and tears of frustration everywhere! I haven’t touched the drawing on the left since I got carried away with the right one. As for the piece on the easel, I can finally say I’m proud to have it be part of my portfolio! Initially, I was gonna scrap it again, but little changes go a long way. I’ll upload the piece with a commentary in the near future.

I honestly don’t know how long I would be working with “Hair Monster”, but until my gut tells me to stop, I’ll keep investigating this project. Who knows? Maybe it’ll evolve into a complete different creature in a few years.
