This is a project i started to do for my college entry. However i ended up switching paths from graphic design to fine arts. So i basically did this pic for nothing xD.
Back to the details, i wanted to go for the detailed look, but make some areas look unfinished and only outlined. That way it brings out more focal points in the piece, so the eye tends to wonder more i guess you could say.
Three of three! Though I have a surprise for you all that I'll upload later.
Pretty self explanatory... It was drawn to match the other two in style. Seriously, the way Wartortle's tail is set up, it was just begging to be drawn this way! I only used one color for the color gradient (as opposed to Red and Yellow for Char. and Dark Green, Lime Green and Yellow for Ivy. There was so much more room on the 'tail' that if I had the whole thing colored I thought it would be too much, and placed next to the others it would overwhelm them. I like how this turned out!
A thing about tattoo placement...
In my opinion, a good place to put any of these last three tattoos, or any circular tattoo in general, would be the upper arm where it connects to the shoulder, or the shoulder blade. Mayyyybe around your bellybutton, but that's pushing it ; ) The shoulder area is very rounded so a rounded design there would bring out that curve of your body, as well as accentuate the design. I wouldn't place it on some place like my forearm (flat, straight, skinny) or my... thighs or something (flat, wider), where it would just look like the image is plastered on the skin, vibrant but totally disconnected, drawing attention to the area but not bringing anything out of it, if I'm making any sense.
Then again, people are allowed to do anything they want to their bodies. I'm just throwing my thoughts out there : )
That's right. I finally conquered my fear of coloring things. FINALLY! If you didn't know, I have had an inate fear of coloring things (and inking them) for a very long time, because i thought I'd ruin them. This is the first of (hopefully) many more colored pieces (again, at least I hope) that i want to do. Anyhoo, the story behind this dress is...the usual, really. I was incredibly bored in History- again, like usual- and started to doodle. That doodle turned into this, on the margins of my history notes on the middle ages. I took it home, whipped out my sketchbook (which is practically glued to me, I swear) and started to draw. And then, caught up in the moment, grabbed an ink pen, three blue colored pencils, and went nuts. I completely forgot about my History homework, and yeah. Typical. The colors remind me of ice and snow, so this dress became Lady of the Ice.
used- three shades of blue colored pencils, a regular pencil, and a generic ink pen.
