Title: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 12, 2009, 03:08:52 am
OK, so I thought it was about time I layed off the photography posting for a while, and started posting some of my other art.

So to start us off, I think I'll post a tattoo I design for a friend of mine.

(http://fc09.deviantart.com/fs30/f/2008/082/c/7/c7a8a6841ac47b80.jpg)

This was done with just a normal pencil on paper, and scanned, then contrast upped a little to make it blacker/less pencil smudge everywhere.

AAAAAND, as no one seemed to like that, here is something else :P

(http://fc02.deviantart.com/fs32/f/2008/218/5/8/In_The_Eyes_Of_Eternity_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

This was done with oil pastel, and was my first attempt at a sort of, impressionist style. It took 20 minutes to do.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 12, 2009, 06:00:49 pm
:D Purdy fishy. That's a pretty sweet tattoo.

And I like the impressionist one. I could never figure out how to do impressionist pieces that weren't painted, so good job. XD


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 12, 2009, 06:07:26 pm
Thanks, the tattoo is meant to be like the whole yin Yang thing, with fish >.<!

Yeah, the impressionist drawing was like, me getting used to the idea and style before I did my massive painting... which I will post... now! Because I am trying to waste time and not do the work I should really be doing :P

(http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs42/f/2009/108/4/8/Another_Day_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

This painting was just done with acrylics (as my school was too cheap to supply us with oils), and the stupid camera changed the colours and all that.. but you get the idea!

MUy purty arrrtys. I didn't actually notice da feesh until it were mebtuoned.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 12, 2009, 08:19:50 pm
OOoooooOOOOoooohh, love that one too. Very nice contrast.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 12, 2009, 09:13:14 pm
Thanks guys :)! That painting is actually painted from one of my photo's that I posted, in case no one noticed. :P

Ready for another art form? This time it's textiles!

(http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs35/f/2008/294/7/4/Textiles_Creation_Feelings_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
 This is all hand sewn, I made it for my mum's birthday.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 12, 2009, 10:54:58 pm
First off, d'aaawww. Second, nice work! Love the style, and the heart-listening-thingy. Yes, heart-listening-thingy. That is its name. It's in the dictionary....Y-you should...look it up...


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 13, 2009, 12:16:26 am
Okay, so I really loved the tribal fishyang...lol.  I broke out my tablet, and worke a bit on it...cleaned some edges up mostly, but I also lengthened some of the points...hope it doesn't look too horrible to you Milly.

(http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e327/GothicGabriel/tribalfish.jpg)


And here is how it would look on a shoulder

(http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e327/GothicGabriel/Tribalfishtat.jpg)


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 13, 2009, 07:14:31 am
Pretty cool! Though you lost the eye on the dark fish :S.

It looks pretty cool on the shoulder, it was actually designed for the guys upper arm. I do have a tattoo that I designed for a shoulder though, will have to find it..

And also, the original picture was actually that long, but I tried to make it more circular by widening it, still don't know which I prefer...

And to Sammich, thanks :P I know the name, but have no clue on the spelling, and I'm too tired/lazy to even bother trying to find out, lol.

Now for my version of the 7 deadly sins, the first, Pride.

(http://fc01.deviantart.com/fs25/f/2008/177/1/9/Pride_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

Pride: Arrogant or disdainful conduct or treatment; haughtiness; an excessively high opinion of oneself; conceit.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 13, 2009, 08:40:43 am
D'awww to the textiley thingababjork, ooh, noyce to the draw'n.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 14, 2009, 12:14:09 am
Thankyou Cheeze!
Now time for Gluttony...
(http://fc02.deviantart.com/fs28/f/2008/150/d/4/Gluttony_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
Gluttony: over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything, to the point of waste

P.S A lot of these drawings are better view from far away, as they are so close up.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 14, 2009, 01:06:32 am
And to Sammich, thanks :P I know the name, but have no clue on the spelling, and I'm too tired/lazy to even bother trying to find out, lol.

XD I'll just stick with heart-listening-thingy.

Awesome sketches! I like the 7-deadly-sins theme. :D


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 14, 2009, 11:28:20 pm
Thanks Sammich :)
Here is the next one... Greed!
(http://fc00.deviantart.com/fs27/f/2008/150/f/d/Greed_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
Greed:excessive desire to acquire or possess more (especially more material wealth) than one needs or deserves.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 15, 2009, 12:34:49 am
:D Awesome.

>_>

<_<

*Hides money from groping hand*


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 15, 2009, 06:30:49 pm
Oh, hiding money wont stop greed :P.

Now time for Envy (this was the hardest for me to find an idea to draw... As you probably have noticed I have been matching up body parts to the sin, Envy was one of the harder ones to come up with an idea...)

(http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs29/f/2008/143/1/9/Envy_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
Envy:a feeling of grudging admiration and desire to have something possessed by another.

See if you can work this one out :P!


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 15, 2009, 06:53:38 pm
OOh, fnawesome.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 15, 2009, 07:41:54 pm
are they looking at a "preccciouuussssss"?

Also sammich:  Stethoscope?


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 15, 2009, 08:26:46 pm
Close enough :P
Now, I think maybe I should link the next one, because even though it is a drawing, and is tasteful, there is nudity, and I do not want to offend!
Now that you have been warned, here it is!
Sloth (http://th02.deviantart.net/fs29/300W/f/2008/150/e/c/Sloth_by_DarkMilly.jpg):melancholy: apathy, depression, joylessness, laziness or indifference, of an unwillingness to act, and an unwillingness to care.



Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 15, 2009, 08:45:04 pm
meh...that's not really nudity.  They show butts on TV.  However, I really like these sketches.  Where can I order a set of prints from?  I would actually really like to have them on my wall.

Also, I bet Lust will be linked :)


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 15, 2009, 09:01:51 pm
Oh, I'm saving lust for last, and actually no, it wont be linked :P. Of course it is my favourite though (hence me saving it till last :P).

I didn't think it was too bad either... I just wasn't really sure what I was aloud to post, and what I'm not.

As for Prints of these, I actually have never been asked.. lol. I would have no idea of where to start :P. *feels stupid*.

It makes me feel special that you have been liking them enough to want prints though :P.

So, here is the next in the series, Wrath. This one was fun to draw!

(http://fc09.deviantart.com/fs30/f/2008/147/c/7/Wrath_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
Wrath:intense anger; rage; fury; any action carried out in great anger.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 15, 2009, 09:19:10 pm
I found your DA!  yay!  It seems you can buy prints there...but I will have to look into it more.  Also, I know you can post art thingys on Etsy.com and people can buy prints.

BTW, were these drawn on canvas?  I really like the grainy texture in them.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 15, 2009, 09:30:38 pm
No, just textured paper :).

You totally shouldn't look at my deviantart, otherwise the stuff I post here will not be a surprise >.<!


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 15, 2009, 09:32:08 pm
I am not sharing any pics! and I'm totally not telling anyone that your dA name is supercrazyAussiegirl...

....oops.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 16, 2009, 07:18:15 am
Lol, I wonder how many people will look up that name and think it is me... :P.

Ok, so I believe we are up to my favourite one, Lust :P.

(http://fc00.deviantart.com/fs27/f/2008/143/b/5/Lust_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
Lust: self-indulgent sexual desire.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 16, 2009, 10:06:24 am
That is damn good.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 16, 2009, 02:17:58 pm
@Envy: Nice. :D Like the perspective.

@Sloth: BUM. Awesome. XD Seems like sloth alright.

@Wrath: D,: I don't wanna die...*Cowers*

@Lust: I agree, that's my favourite as well. Very well done!

Yeah, DA lets you do prints. Though the size of the piece needs to be right.

Post by: Sammich! on October 17, 2009, 03:02:33 am
Eh? Paid account? I don't have a paid account and I can put my stuff up as prints. Unless you need a paid account for people to buy them? Or...or....I love spaghetti....


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 17, 2009, 07:52:10 pm
The later is correct I believe. Which sucks, as I don't have a paid account.

You can submit it to be approved for print if you don't have a subscription, it just won't be reviewed and approved until someone tries to buy it.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 18, 2009, 03:44:22 pm
Well there you go!

Anyways, my next installment is another tattoo design for a friend. It's and armband, hence it's length.

(http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs25/f/2008/087/9/8/Cross_Armband_2_by_DarkMilly.jpg)


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 18, 2009, 06:45:56 pm
I like this.  I am glad it is not tribal.  tribal usually sucks.  Your fishies were exceptions to that rule


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 19, 2009, 01:43:30 am
Thanks :). I actually like tribal, just, not all the really common stuff. (I know that is sort of a contradiction in itself as tribal is common in general). I just love designing stuff like that, find it fun doing all the lines and shapes and stuff. :P

(http://fc01.deviantart.com/fs29/f/2008/050/d/e/Angels_Fall_First_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

This is more of a sketch that I did when I was alone and depressed at College one day (oh so many years ago now!)
I was listening to Nightwish at the time. >.<


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 19, 2009, 02:23:03 am
Thought I posted already. Weird.

Anyway, awesome tattoo design. :D And yeah, I'm the same way; I like only the uncommon tribal stuff.

And nice drawling. I especially like the wings. All the wings I do look like crap. XD


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 19, 2009, 08:36:15 am
Aye, those are some nicely done wings.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 20, 2009, 06:42:41 am
Thanks guys, I normally hate the wings I draw, these turned out OK I guess...

OK, the next is an oil painting I did, (again, the photo does not do the painting justice). It's a self portrait, everything seen has a meaning. The girl is not meant to look anything like me, she is just a representation of me, as all the objects and colours in the painting are representations of other important things or people in my life... I did it for an art class, and we had to choose an artist to be our influence, I chose Tamara De Lempicka (http://www.tamara-de-lempicka.org/). Be warned, her art contains nudity.
Enjoy!

:D Noice. Very surrealistic. I'm likes.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 20, 2009, 06:00:20 pm
Why she look scared?


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 20, 2009, 06:06:36 pm
She isn't meant to lol, I believe the photo didn't get the eyes properly because of the shine of the paint... As I said before, you would need to see it to actually see the painting properly :P. In fact, now I look closer at the picture, you can barely see her pupils, pretty weird >.< lol! The position she is in, is to do with the artist I chose to have as my major influence, she did a lot of, sort of submissive poses, but most of the time the face would always be looking straight at the viewer, quite confidently.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 21, 2009, 04:17:54 am
Ahhh, like a "this is me and I know it" type of feeling. If I'm making sense. XD


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 21, 2009, 05:07:59 am
Well yeah. She was very 'into' drawing women as, elegant, yet strong. The elegance showed through their bodies and positions, and the strength was in their faces. I know what I mean, you would know what I meant if you looked at the site I linked! lol.

Edit: As to not double post.. Here is a 'wearable artpiece' that I not only sewed, but made the pattern, and actually created the fabric. Took many hours. The photo isn't meant to be good by the way, the focus is the dress!
The dress represents earth and water.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I noticed that when I saw her pieces. Very beautiful. :D

And that's an awesome dress. Love the style. It makes me want to see her hug that tree. XD


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 22, 2009, 06:59:21 am
@Jet, I hope you mean crazy in a good way lol!

@Sammich, She actually did hug the tree at first lol, I would post those photos, but I have since lost them!

(http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs21/f/2007/304/4/8/raise_your_fists_modified_by_DarkMilly.jpg)
You might recognise this picture from a certain album cover >.<. Again, scanner kinda ruined the picture, but you can get the idea!


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Jetraymongoose on October 22, 2009, 08:22:30 am
Crazy as in that is totally crazily awesomeness in crazy awesome dress form.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 22, 2009, 02:40:18 pm
XD HAHAH, she hugged the tree? Awesome. She has performed the sacred, traditional right.

And that picture is sweet. Not sure who/what album it is, but she is teh hotness.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 22, 2009, 04:43:54 pm
It's from a Disturbed album cover. (I sat down to draw, and that's what I had in front of me, as one of my friends had just bought it, and had it on the table.)

Yes, the tree hugging was epic, but it didn't show off the dress enough!

As no one replied I will add my next artwork in here... Now I just finished this, I have been meaning to create this picture for a while, but hadn't been really inspired to do it.  It is a picture to go with my story "Home". So read it if you haven't! :D Enjoy!

(http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs51/f/2009/296/d/b/Home_by_DarkMilly.jpg)


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 23, 2009, 03:21:54 pm
Oohh, Disturbed. I see nao.

Eff, that's awesome. :D Grotesque and mucho sweetness.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Cheez on October 23, 2009, 04:31:03 pm
@Dress- Holy flange of Beelzebub, you actually made the fabric? That is bloody impressive. And the dress itself looks like it was pretty tricky to put together too. Major respect for that.

@Disturbed album thingy- Bloody awesome.

@'Home'- I'm sure I read that, but can't for the life of me remember it. Anyhoo, that is one very cool, creepy picture.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 24, 2009, 01:08:39 am
Aww thanks guys, glad you like!

Yes, making that dress took many many many hours. The longest was creating the material... Never again! lol

Also, you should totally read the story, I believe it makes the picture so much more awesome! It's about zombies, which makes it awesome.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 24, 2009, 01:13:07 am
Milly, I like the "Home" picture, but I think it would be really awesome if there were very subtle splashes of color.  like the fire's glow maybe lighting the color of the car or trees or something...just a cool idea imho


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 24, 2009, 01:15:43 am
I was actually going to do that.. and I did try it, but I didn't think it looked 'right'. This is also more how I pictured it in my head... I was actually originally going to draw it in plain led.

Thanks for the tip though :)! I like it when people care enough about my art to actually give constructive criticism!

Edit: No double posting for me!

This is a photo I took with film and developed, but it is here because I added to it using photoshop, so it is mixed media... I think it belongs here more than in my photography thread.
(http://fc04.deviantart.com/fs50/i/2009/299/d/2/Fly_Away_From_This_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

To me butterflies symbolise happiness, joy, purity, and innocence, so there is a deeper meaning to this picture!


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Boomstick on October 26, 2009, 04:32:32 pm
I like this one Milly!  and I didn't even know you had posted it!  It's really good contrast work. 


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 26, 2009, 05:33:29 pm
Thanks :), yeah I'm pretty sure barely anyone noticed, but I didn't want to double post as that seems to annoy people.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Jetraymongoose on October 26, 2009, 06:52:41 pm
I actually really love that picture. It's so beautiful, and how the butterflies coming off the dress reminds me of the opening for  Reading Rainbow Theme  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6j8EiWIVZs)


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 26, 2009, 09:16:03 pm
Thanks :). I have never even heard of that before, but I can see why it reminds you of it! This is actually part of a set, that I will eventually complete, and post here.

Aside from random clips, I've only seen the movie, and I think I'm okay with that. Not because I didn't like the movie though, because I did.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 27, 2009, 12:27:24 am
Twas a good show. A bit boring at times, though. Haven't watched a lot of it though. Maybe 10-20 episodes.

Anyway. Very damn awesome picture, Milly! Mucho beautiful. Love the mixture between greyscale and colour.

lol :P. She is in many of my shoots, she is just so photogenic. I've also made many clothes for her, and she is the perfect shape.

lol, don't worry, you should of seen the guys that actually know her when they saw the prints, basically drooling :P. All the guys are like "man, she is so hot!" Like all the time... I've always said that if I was to swing the other way, it would be for her :P.

In terms of making clothes though, she has hips, but no stomach or butt, a small waist, and a chest, makes for the easiest body shape to make clothes for. Making clothes for me on the other hand >.<, specially my formal dress when i was 17kg heavier :P, maybe I should post that up.. even though I look horrible, the dress is awesome! (not to sound up myself lol).

OK, fine! Now, this dress took me over 70 hours to make. I didn't design the base of the dress itself, but the sleeves, and the other lace, I designed. Every visible edge of the lace is hand beaded, and most of the lace is hand sewn on. The dress is lined (which mean I had to basically make the dress twice), and I also created my boyfriends tie and handkerchief (didn't use a pattern for these, created them off knowledge). Enjoy!

PS. I look retarded in the second one because I was talking.
Also, there are so many photo's because they all show off different parts of the dress.

I love that dress.  very smexy.  And even though you say you were heavier, it still looks good.  unlike those bigger women who wear REALLY tight dresses/skirts, and other clothes that do not flatter.

Your boyfriend is a lucky man.  He better know that, or he can answer to me. :P

Thanks :P. It's just weird how much difference 17kg actually did, so glad I have lost it now.
I believe my boyfriend aapreciates me, though there are lots of times when I feel that he really doesn't, but that might just be my lack of self confidence. Who knows?

Now, another photo manipulation I made just then. It was inspired by the song Soft Skeletons by Anberlin, a song that I can relate to very much. Enjoy.

Dear little girl, so much hurt for such a young age.
Trapped inside a pretty little lie, your body’s betrayed.

Don’t fix your eyes on a fix you’ll rely on.
Fixed her eyes on a fix she relies upon.

Stand unafraid, all the good souls, stand unafraid!

When the light starts to burn, and the pain returns.
I just wish that I could heal the hurt you feel tonight
There’s life in your veins, these needles have chains to hold you down.
How can you expect to win this war, if you’re too afraid to fight? Are you too afriad to fight?

That's damn cool. Very awesome job. Mucho purdy. :D Also, I know how it is to feel crappy in every picture you take, but in the end others can tell you the truth. You look pretty! So stop your nay-saying, you. ^o^

Whoa, that's pretty badass. I especially like the way you did the chains--great perspective. I also found the song, and it goes well.

Lol, thanks on both accounts Sammich :). I feel a lot better about myself in photos now, but I hate looking back on these ones.. which is really sad because i love the dress... lol. The dress also doesn't fit me anymore! :( but i'll be able to take it in, though, now i have red hair, probably wont look as good anyways.. lol.
The song is one of my favourites. The band is probably my second fav band.. maybe third, but yeah, that is off topic :P.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 30, 2009, 02:57:26 am
XD No problem, just speaking the truth.

Hmmmmm, the red hair and the dress might match, actually. Unless it's too much red. XD I dunno. You'd probably know better than I would.

That's a good band, also. Not my top favourite genre, but still cool.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 30, 2009, 03:08:44 am
Well, the thing about them is that every album is sort of a different sound. Which is cool. My top ten fav bands are also from like, a huge variety of genres :P. I'm just one of those people who really like music in general!

The thing with my hair is that it might clash with the dress rather then compliment it like the black hair does :P. I'm thinking I might make the same dress again, but just above knee height, with different material, and without the lace sleeves, and it can be a dress I wear out to town and stuff :P.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: Sammich! on October 30, 2009, 03:46:13 am
Yeah, I'm that way with music too, mostly. I like a lot of genres, though most of it is hard and/or melancholy. XD

Oohh, I see what you mean about the hair now. The majority of the dress is red, so the black hair works well with the sleeves. You shall have a lovely night on the town with that dress. But your boyfriend won't. XD He'll be too busy throwing guys off you.


Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on October 30, 2009, 03:51:10 am
He normally doesn't come out :P lol. So I have to throw the guys off myself. When I was single I didn't get so much attention, now I'm taken I get heaps! totally not how it should work.

even though I look horrible

The hell are you going on about? The dress looks bloody lovely, as do you.

The photoshop's really nice, but the right chain looks a bit funny to me where that line goes through it. Not sure why, it just doesn't look quite right. Still, 'tis a minor criticism on an otherwise muy bueno shoop.

Sorry for the double post, and for restarting this thread that hasn't been used for a while, I just feel silly creating a new one when I use it for my art >.>

So I was pretty bored, and this is in no ways, a 'good' drawing, but it's something I've wanted to do for a while, I will eventually do a girls version too.
Also, don't feel bad if you are not included in this one, I ran out of space on the paper >.>

First off, I know it has been ages since anyone wrote anything in here, but I'm posting here because I don't see the point in making a new thread for new artwork, even though I haven't created anything (that I've actually shared) in ages.

I close my eyes, Ignore the smoke...
and smile.

I created this image to a song by A Perfect Circle, I wonder if you can guess which one :P (especially easy when you read the lyrics >.>)
Also, the original image of the guy had both eyes open, and though it's not perfect, I'm pretty happy with my attempt to make him only have one eye open.

Edited because I said the wrong band >.>

*Drum role*

After ages and ages I finally have some random things to submit! They aren't really worth the wait and all that, but meh, at least they are something!
Firstly, my first ever attempt at a background fully done using photoshop only, I think I have done ok >.>

(http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/186/5/9/Counting_Stars_by_DarkMilly.jpg)

Second a picture I drew (again using just photoshop, with just my mouse, hence the very bad, not at all smooth lines), using a photo as a reference. Not a great photo, I just like how the human brain processes what is actually just a series of random lines and shapes to form a whole picture.

Title: Re: Art that isn't photography
Post by: DarkMilly on July 05, 2010, 04:24:21 pm
Thanks :) Yeah, I basically came up with the idea when I decided I sort of like the pose I had in the picture, but at the same time it was a little cliche, so I thought that drawing it like that would make it a much more interesting image.

I'm totally on a role, haven't done this much art in ages lol.

I know I'm reviving a long dead thread, but I've finally done some more art! Woo for procrastination!

A tattoo I designed, got a few issues I know, but I really could not be bothered to fix them up because of the effort, but you get enough of an idea!

As normal, I know I'm not only reviving an old thread, but double posting, as normal I don't want to start a whole new thread, so figured here would be best.
I recently had a conceptual art piece displayed at the National Art Gallery of Australia, as part of my degree, so I thought I would post a couple of photos of it up here for you all to take a look at :).
