A friend recently asked me to sketch up a design for a new tattoo and let me just tell you, this was a lot more challenging then I thought it would be. I LOVE detail but in this case, the details will be the job of the tattoo artist. I kept having to go back and take out more and more detail :(
To make me feel a little bit better about the finished artwork I decided to make a second piece, detailed the way I see fit. I'm working on a gray, lightly textured, paper with a set of neutral colored charcoal pencils. Not sure I love the detail I'm getting but I'll stick with it and see how it comes out.
