"swimming in ink"

Monday, December 20, 2010

I have to admit that I have finally found my love for ink drawing again. :) I used to draw draw draw and draw non stop with my ink pens all day everyday all those years ago, but somehow, I stopped.
I was convinced I had lost my touch hence why I never bothered picking up my pen again all these years.

However, recently, I've been on a roll with my beloved ink pen; doing piece after piece, polishing my rusty skills one artwork after another. Drawing gave me a sense of accomplishment, and it helps me clear my head so I'm pretty glad to have found what made me happy again. :)

Just the other day, Mathieu got me to work on a commissioned tattoo artwork for one of his clients.
Dude wanted an unconventional japanese carp, or what we call the koi fish; something that's different from those common japanese mafia carp tattoos that looked like crap.

Anyways, I snapped the work progress with my Blackberry.

A lot of pencil work, and even more inking to work on. You can bet that there was hell a lot of erasing as well.

But the final piece came out fabulously. :)

Yep, am pretty proud of myself. :D
Anyone else needs a tattoo design?
