Finally cleaned this up...and it's too clean. I'm pretty satisfied with the spirals, but the outer edge needs to be less even, so the rays and stars aren't confined so strictly by a circle, which was the best part about the concept sketch (see below). It made it look a little more natural/organic. Maybe if I just tell the tattoo artist to fix it...

This'll need to be redrawn, so I half-assed the wings. Overall not bad.

Rough Concept...

Jamie's tattoo...

changes to make:
drop the arm of the jagged spiral down to take the place of the round one (the outside of the main circle) on the right side, and vice-versa.
modify the shapes of the spirals so that the switch from foreground to background doesn't require breaking the shape (like about 2/3 up the image in the center).
general cleanup, better color.
tighter spirals?

Look at my dumb ass.

This is what I did last night. Eyes are slightly dorked up, but it's not too bad, I think.

Approaching caricature

I got a sketchbook for Christmas a long time ago, so I finally decided to do something with it, and I'm trying to teach myself to draw caricatures. I've wondered before how you can distort the hell outta someone's face and still maintain a likeness, so I figured I'd start trying to find out by drawing myself. So these are crappy drawings of my lovely mug, with an attempt to loosen up, per the advice of some friendly strangers in a previous post. The profile pose is completely boring, and the expression is nonexistent, but I'm just playing with features and this whole "caricature" concept for now--it'll be better next time around. The second profile on the right is almost amusing, though. I also drew my mouth in a few different poses. Do mouths pose? I'm more pleased with those drawings, though they don't represent a caricature in any way; however, having drawn them certainly doesn't hurt.

Jerry doodles

These are the fruits of an idea session at the Ravari Room. I didn't doodle just Jerry, but saying "Jerry doodles" is fun. You should try it.

Too funny for TV:

My rendition of JP's Genghis. I like this design:

Random chubby girl. Just kinda fell outta the pencil:

Not very cartoony, but a drawing nonetheless. I didn't capture the humor of Snyder's expression very well. And made the top of his head way to skinny. Oops.

Here's the original, just for reference:
