TOM- In keeping with adding more of a design element to my work, I'm trying to push myself in terms of composition, and not always having to use perspective or alot of people in the scene to make a drawing interesting. In doing that, this to me feels more like a logo or tattoo design.
I wish i could say i just thought of this and put it down on paper, but it wasn't really like that. Like anything else, i have a rough idea, then start scribbling, working, then reworking until it starts to look ok. This is usually done on typing paper and gets pretty messy. I wanted a real clean look to my inks, a little more controlled. With this being simple, i didn't want to add any unnecessary lines to confuse it. The final step was coloring in photoshop . My recent approach to that is to limit my colors and approach it more like a silkscreen, which this might become soon.
