I'll do a proper scan of this pic later, but for now, here's the 'camera phone pic while the inks dry' version.
More inks, this time with coloured inks and washes. Trying to capture the madness. Somebody recently asked me to do something like this for a tattoo they wanted. I'll post up that one when it's finished - this was a sort of test run for the final piece. Not the first time someone has asked me for a design for a tattoo, and hopefully not the last, but each one makes me nervous! There's an added pressure, knowing that the thing you draw will end up being permanent on someone's skin.
UPDATED 22/9 Here's a scanned & balanced version of the same pic.
