A Friend of mine wanted a tattoo designed, so I've drawn it up on paper, scanned it (the scan was taken a few weeks back) and tried to ''nice it up'' as it were
OK, so this is the original line sketch as you can see, nothing amazing, but still took long enough i have to say.
after a good 3 hours of pulling my hair out in photoshop, i finally accepted that the pen tool had beaten me, so i came back and kicked it's nib off....no, i persevered and eventually became fairly comfortable with it.
Now, i know it's hardly breathtaking, but i just thought I'd post this to show that I feel as though I'm finally getting to grips with this thing! perhaps vector drawing is going to be the best way of going about my final piece?
