I love the linework on this…particularly the eye and front tattoo. The coloring is also very well done.
It’s this kind of stuff that makes me self conscious about my own work. I could never seem to get the hang of gradients. My brain just isn’t wired that way. I’m not an abstract thinker, I’m far too linear. I guess that’s why I never was any good at charcoal, but brush and ink work…oh man did I rock that shit.
I actually kind of miss working in ink, but there’s no way I could go back to it. First of all, where would I work? My house isn’t exactly conducive to serious studio work, and secondly…what the hell would I do? It was easy when I had a human model to draw, lit to accentuate the shadows. But it’s not exactly like I can do that at home…
…I really miss college sometimes, which is odd, considering being an Art Major was very likely the most excruciatingly infuriating experience of my life.
