I think I've caught the coloring bug, and I'm actually pretty happy with myself that I've been abel to color so much this weekend! I've been practicing a lot lately and after this weekend, I think I've gained the confidence I've been lacking for a long time. I think I've finally found my rhythm too! I've learned a few more tricks that move the job along faster than the way I previously colored.

I think now I finally have the confidence to continue coloring some of the things I've been really hesitant to start due to worrying it would look horrible. :blush:

This is Bijyoumaru, my bardic character from Rokugan whom I play every other Sunday in a D&D game. :D

I really want a peacock feather somewhere. It's just hard to choose exactly where, especially since I have so many costumes that wouldn't look right with a tattoo. Maybe I should start small and get a small peacock feather on my ankle or on my shoulder... *ponders*

Connie started with the ankles. I started with the shoulders. Well, all of mine are on my shoulders/upper arms. While I love my tats, and want more, I also want to look professional, so I won't ever have one on my neck or forearms, for example.

YAY!!!!!! :hug: I'm so glad to hear you're gaining more confidence in yourself hun! Because truly you're wonderful and you need to realize that!!!! *pokes and giggles* ;P :love:

I was JUST telling my friend about Bijyou earlier too lol...because she mentioned she bought the oriental adventures book for D&D and all...hehehhe and I was saying how very colorful and flamboyant he is...and look! he's all colorful and flamboyant perdiful here! lol! ;P that tattoo is soooo awesome! I just love all the detail you put in it and I like how the snake "pops" with the added color ^^; and I really like how his hair looks in this! excellent job hun :D :hug:

:D Thank you so much hun! :hug:

I wish I had the courage to get that tattoo! It would rock on so many levels. I'm just too much of a needle-phobe to undertake something that crazy huge.

Bijyou is a blast to play! :giggle: Every now and then though he's really annoying only because he really is SUCH a diva! :laughing:
