Trust me I'm a gay!

He does stand in a bit of camp way now you mention it :)
But not to worry, I don't really plan on doing the full character, I just want to have a drawing that imitates his skin. I want to look like him not look like him ;)

I printed this one out to show mrX when I manage to get hold of him.

Which ditch?


The front of the elbow, the soft part that bends inwards. It's actually kinda hard to describe, but yes, opposite of elbow.

Update:
I've been to the studio but was quickly told he wouldn't be interested by my design, which as much as frustrating is in the end a good thing.
The hunt is still on to find the person who'll take my challenge :)

They gave me this adress, apperently someone they know who recently set up shop.

I kinda like that search anyway, it gives me the opportunity to visit different studios.

I've never heard someone other than a tattoo artist call it the ditch, so it was new to me until someone was jamming needles into it 50 or 60 times a second. :wink:

I'm working on a design for my whole neck, a city-scape (almost in silhouette but not quite, just dark enough to look like one from a distance though). I'd wanted it to be Dune based, but I don't know if there is any good art that shows Arrakeen, before or after Paul transformed it. Or even a really good description of the skyline?

Any help pointing me towards something would be great. I'd like to have some minarets, but I'm not sure if those would be in Arrakeen.

The only mention of minarets is in McDune. ;)

That's what I remembered, but I held a little hope. Oh well, might have to be an ode to architecture rather than Dune then. :(

I totally have that figure!

Love this idea for a tattoo. I'm a HUGE marvel fan and have been trying to figure out a marvel tattoo for a while myself. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
If there's anything I've learned from working with monkeys, it's that there is no problem which cannot be solved by flinging poo at it.
