Hey guys, I was working on a flash sheet to hangup in my room while I wait for my girlfriend to come home from florida. I drew up this alligator design and I really like it. Its basic but I used the old American Traditional tattoo style cus its my favorite.

I've never really painted aside from high school art clases when I was younger but I went to the store an bought some acryllic paints to work on these flash designs and I was super happy with them so I went out and bought more haha. The next piece of flash Im gonna post is one that I really really like and I hope you do too (as long as I don't fuck it up during painting it lol).

Let me know what you think. Below is the linework and then the Spit Shaded version before I added the paint.

Man, this art is so great! I tried to contact you, if you are open for any commissions :)

Permian-Extinction responds:

Thank you! Where did you try contacting me on? I am open

Very nice, it wuld work as a tatto

Wow. That's an interesting process, and the final result has really cool gradients. The curvature and the way you drew the alligator is flowing and adds a liveliness to the design.

There are some strange things happening with the alligator legs and tail. Also, the thumb on the left hand goes inward, while the thumb on the right hand goes outwards. Not sure if that's impactful to the overall design though.

Permian-Extinction responds:

Thanks. You're right. it's right hand thumb does go outward and I overlooked that lol. That should be okay though since old flash art from the 40's and 50's were made quickly without much thought. But you are right haha I wish I saw that earlier.
