Summer Wrap-Up





all right, here is some randomness of the last month or so....
got to work on the jelly fish knee/ leg some more this pic shows a few hours worth of sitting 2, but i've since started adding the tentacles down his leg but i don't have those pics of that yet....





did this little mech skull behind jordan's ear, that was fun...


hooked up a wren on kelsey's shoulder...she's coming back for another version on the other shoulder...






started another koi on eric's leg, there will be a dragon koi on the rest of his calf when we finish this side...





got to do a more traditional style piece with this eagle/snake fight deal, i'd like to do more traditonal stuff, just never get asked for it, probably because of having brady duncan down the hall from me, heheheh..



started adding backround behind a few tattoos i did on spicy mike, (a hanya and a shark attack)
this is the first stuff i did completely (line/shade) with a rotary machine, still have some more left...



i didn't do this tattoo, but this guy came into the shop and had this tattoo to commemorate his DUI inside a virginia walmart on a beer run on a rascal scooter that resulted in his arrest and permenent walmart ban, sweet!



back to stuff i did, this tattoo was completed in four different short sessions. it started off with a snowflake, which was the first try using a rotary ever, then a cover up of a not so great horoscope tattoo using the purple waves, which were drawn in place, followed by all the backround also drawn in with pen first.....not very planned out, but i think it looks pretty neat...



just a little sketch for an oriole tattoo the last guy is getting....


after sticking with colored pencils as my medium of choice for almost 20 years, i've decided to give painting a serious try, and really put some time into practice and learning. tattoo flash is mostly watercolor, sometimes pencil, and i don't really want to have any limitations on the way i produce that kind of imagery anymore...
so this is the 2nd try at a watercolor painting i finished a couple of weeks ago....a few battles won and lost on this piece, but i think i'll be able to wrap my head around this stuff with practice...



i'm giving oil a shot, too, and it's definitely tricky, and i have never taken any kind of painting class in my life, so this is just me trying to check out info on the web or in books to try to get a clue...
but this rose is my first attempt...
