Experimenting a bit with combining pencil and ink.

What do you guys think about tattoos? I don't have any, but I really like the work that the artists do. They're so talented *_*

This is a well done piece. The contrasting colors work really well together.

Now that you've mentioned tattoos,
That's reminded me of how I'm starting to think about getting one.
Me-don't-thinks I'm really serious right now,
Yet the thoughts are there.
Maaaaaaaaaybe if I *did* get one,
I'd go for a butterfly on my back. :3

I love EVERYTHING about this! The palette is just perfect so that each color pops, and the 
tattoo really stands out! I agree, no tattoos but some of them look amazing :O

You said combining pencil and ink. Was this done traditionally?

Hey, sorry for replying late! This was done with multiple traditional mediums, then colored in Photoshop.

I used ink for the darkest values, then pencil to do the lighter shading in places like the tattoo.

Oh no problem! That's incredible :O Your lineart is incredibly crisp, and the pencil
blends in perfectly! I'm guessing the ink was some type of marker?

For this one I mostly used a BIC ballpoint pen (its clear white and says "ultra round stic grip" on the side), and a fat black Prismacolor marker for filling in large portions such as the hair :3

Sometimes I use a water brush filled with india ink for more thick, brush-y work, but not in this case.

I don't mind it on fictional characters. I'm undecided in real life :)

I love the colour scheme, the bright orange on the tattoo really stands out against the grey background and complements the light and dark blues. I don't see this colour scheme used very often outside of holiday resort advertisements.
