You show a lot of promise as others have said. With practice you could possibly get taken under a tattoo artist's wing and shown the ropes if that sounds like something that interests you. Some of your work comes off that way, so sorry if I misinterpret you.
Thanks! Misinterpret me? Haha I already started an apprenticeship at my friends families shop in the beginning of the summer.
Conceptually this is my favorite. Inside all of us monsters exist beauty.
Congratulations you're the first person who looked at this and didn't just say "wow dude looks super evil and creepy and boobs"
I really appreciate someone actually looking for the meaning in my work. I put a lot of thought into it but none really seems to notice
Skill wise this is your best work in the thread. Her eyes show innocence and I love her boyish haircut. Shows another side of her that isn't all glamour and Hollywood.
Thanks I put many hours into it. I give credit to the orginal picture for the look though.
Is the bird trying to wake her for impending danger? Curious as to the meaning of this one.
Well the girl is dead and the bird is...eating her corpse. It supposed to represent how even the most harmless beautiful creatures must do "dark" things to survive.
Cheesy quote, but kick ass effect you've given the skeleton.
Thanks! I scanned a drawing into photoshop and used that to make the effect. Yeah you're not the first one to say so. I like the whole "the body is a wondrous machine" theme, but everyone else seems to think its corny haha.
I'd like to see you try your hand at some more colorful pieces rather than black and white sketches. Keep it up though and post more, people lurk a lot, but don't let that deter you.
I've been trying to experiment with colorful mediums. It's just that graphite is what I'm most experienced with so I tend to stick to it.
Also what is the origins of your usernname 372, it's eating me alive
1/3720 are the odds of navigating through an asteroid field
Thanks for the great post!
