Commission: Tattoo Design

This is a tattoo design commissioned by a friend of mine who is also a very talented artist.

She told me to tell copycats that they are bitches.

I dunno, I kinda like it, myself. I just may have to get myself inked with this, too!

winkey faaaaaace.

Art Chop

This was a fun project.

These two pieces were created specifically for the purpose of being literally kicked in half. For charity.

 

This one took a week of me doing it, redoing it, etc.

All in all… I started to hate it. So, at the last minute, I decided to do another:

The second probably took a total of 2 hours. Which goes to show, I work best under pressure.

Turns out, one artist dropped out of the event, so both pieces are going in to meet their doom.

Fun fact: The coordinator informed me they’ll be strapping a Go Pro onto the kicking leg in addition to the before/after pics.
That means we’ll have some fun videos, soon!

Le Petit Vader

Le_Petit_Vader_NOT_halftoned_web

 

Had this one in my brain for a while, now.

I have redone this piece about 6 times, now. Each time, something was not right. I eventually used my new Cintiq to finish this (I couldn’t trust myself to do it in traditional medium).

Finally, it is done.

I submitted a dumbed-down version of this to TeeFury in hopes that it will be made into a t-shirt. I say dumbed-down because I found out (as I was about to upload it) that there was a 6-color limit.

I used half-tones to get around that one.

The Incredible Bearded Man

Husband as a circus freak.

I’m debating on adding a glass of bourbon and some other possible tweaks.

A Majestic Journey

Here’s a magical picture of my friend Rachel. You may remember her from this post.

The original picture was going to be the two of us riding a winged unicorn away from Specs, but I thought that might be a little gay…
