ok here goes wah i would do with it obviosly the "rose" needs finnishing not sure if you still have the design but the leaves i would say how youve got the shading looks like a kinda "undershade" so try "brush" some green over the shade in the leaves maybe leave the skin for highlights then strengthen the outline around the skull or make the desicion to give it a kinda background or flow to the design or not :thumbsup: nothing wrong with it its jus unfinnished just needs a lil more added to bring it up ;)

just my opinion folks not saying im right or wrong :cool:

oh p.s and a better fill with the black in the eye ;) and maybe another "rendering" of greywash on the skull will give it alot more depth to ;)

Hi Ben, think what you have done looks very good but as JB says, little more black in the eye socket and nose too - and if you could finish the outline of the Rose and other leaf - the makings of a nice tat there :thumbsup: where you stationed? Not local to me are you? Lol! (catterick)?
