    This is a work in progress on a friend of mine.
    The dragon is on the inside of the calf and the koi is on the outside.
    We still havent decided what will be inbetween, but looking at skulls, waves, smoke and cherry blossoms.

    make it up as we go along i think, but it will be a great way to practice my shading.

    The waves on the koi, are by no means complete, it looks very rough, but he couldnt take anymore pain.

    All are done with a 5RL for the outline, and the koi is coloured with a 13RS and a 9Mag.

    Be gentle now!!

    I agree. the colour in the koi looks amazing! Something like that colour would never come to my mind. Usually, you only see yellows, reds and oranges.
    Looks good.

    They look really good, and colour of the Koi is really good.

    I have never seen a koi done in these colours before. I have tattood a smaller koi on pigskin, but it didn't look as good as yours (not even close). I used a 5RL and 5RS, is it easier with a mag or flat as I haven't tried them yet.
