After doing the Exquisite Beast for a year, I’ve been meaning to push myself more with real media, maybe emulate something similar to the whimsical lineless stuff maruti-bitamin and tir-ri do, or the mixed media paintings Sam Bosma seems to be able to churn out in his sleep.
Anyway, I seem to be on a Beast Husband kick. I think it started about a decade or two ago and expect it to putter out around the time I die.
I’ve been looking at a bunch of traditional tattoo flash lately. There’s some neat stuff going on you don’t see many other places, like that stark black shading that doesn’t really imply form but gives contrast and design. I’d like to mess around more with stuff like this, gotta learn to assimilate more heavy darks into my usual art.
WOAAAAA, okay, wow, that Tumblr Tuesday thing yesterday went better than anticipated. Thank you, guys! This blog currently has six times the number of recommendations as the blog with the second number of recommendations in the Illustrators section. o__o And that’s because of yooouuuu, I love you dudes.
I’m going to try to put up more finished/interesting things here — I realized that this blog has been kind of front-loaded with doodles. This is the uncolored version of this comic.
