love purple & green combo. makes the teeth pop. the value's things comes to mind though. put it in PS or Krita or whatever & grey scale it. is it still interesting?
the painted rose is fire. i'm not one to display roses in my space... i'd put that on my wall all day. i was never a good graffiti artist so i appreciate that influence. i was never a good pin striper & i see those elements too.
the pen & ink are also on point. minimal flaws (bobble here, went off direction there) & big bold lines w/the smaller lines.... line weight contrast... one of my favorite ways to create interest. i was always a fan of "image" comics & their inking style. inked a couple comics when i was in college & did my best to emulate that.
the last couple days of posting non-tattoo work is really making me want to do some work. but before i do that i have to do some work (cleaning out my garage from mechanic & storage space to studio space).
