I got back to paper and pencil for a little bit recently to do a sketch of a sweet older lady for a friend. It was quite challenging, especially her white hair. Its really difficult to draw white hair on white paper HAHAH. Anyway, it turned out pretty solid.

Howdy folks! I took on a pretty big piece today. I did a shield with the Horde standard on it. Its from World of Warcraft. This was an EXCELLENT learning piece for shading, something that I havent done much of yet. I had fun doing this piece, and Im pretty happy with it. I am still extremely slow, and ran out of time as a result. I could have easily put in another 2 hours of work into this tat. Shading is very tough, getting things to look smooth is no easy task. And keeping track and understanding my ink washes can be rather confusing. Nonetheless, this was a great start, I learned TONNES and eventually we're going to add color to this piece too. I hope I see more interesting pieces like this come my way!

Did some custom script today. A friend of mine wanted his son's name on his forearm, so I gladly obliged him. It turned out pretty solid. Its great practice for getting solid lines down! I like working on the forearm too. Overall Im quite pleased with how it turned out.

I finally did another tattoo today after a much too long break. It was my first script in english. The neck is a really tough area to work on, I dont like it much. Im pleased to see there is an improvement in my line quality, no matter how minor. Im going to try pick up the pace now and do 2 tats a week from here on out. Wish me luck
