Today was a strange day for me. I woke up a little light on sleep, but I felt like I still had some energy. I wrote this morning, then met with Chris early for some work on CreateQuest. There are some pretty exciting developments there!
After lunch I went to the shop and got ready for a tattoo, a piece of flash that I sold. Here’s the final result:
The lines looked great, but I feel like I lost it on the shading. I should have simplified the shading for the smaller size of the piece, but alas, I didn’t. It would have been stronger with clearly defined planes of the face, I think.
What was awesome?
Great progress on CreateQuest.
Tattooing a piece of flash that I sold.
What needs work?
I’m disappointed in the result of the tattoo. I’d like to see it when it’s healed, because the grey wash I used will heal lighter than it appears right now. A second pass might be necessary.
What did I learn?
Always try to go bigger with a design involving a face. Always.
And don’t forget to check out CreateQuest – a project that I’m working on with Chris Beaven. It’s our mission to bring creatives together in an empowering community with a focus on improving the world, not just changing it.
