Skulls January 8th - 14th

Day 8. Dragon inspired skull.

Day 9. Didn't really come out as I was planning, but the ideas there.
Day10. This is the kind of thing I sketch out for layout but really need some reference to make it OK for a tattoo.

Day 11. Used a real skull photo for reference here.

Day 12. I really don't know, maybe with a bit of work? who knows?

Day 13. Could make a decent tattoo, quite pleased with it.

Day 14. A popular theme.

Skulls January 1st - 7th

Day 1. This is my first sketch, just a quick roughed out skull, done just before bedtime on the 1st, it'd been a busy day and I nearly fell at the first hurdle by not getting a sketch done but I managed to rough out this skull quickish just to make sure I started.


 Day 2. Busy day at the shop but sketched this out, not great, really need to put more effort into planning out what to sketch instead of just putting pencil to paper.

Day 3. Still just sketching randomly, but ideas for basic small tattoos.


Day 4. Pretty bad candy skull, I'd drawn up a better one on scrap paper before this , then sketched this poor effort, wish I'd thrown it away and drawn another but it can stay here as a lesson to do better.


Day 5. Skull with snake, quite happy with this as layout goes need to reference some real skulls and some real snakes, but it looks tattooable.

Day 6.  Just sketching the usual type of skull I might do if someone just asks for one to be free-handed on.

Day 7. Well its different, not a lot else to say.

January - SKULLS

January's theme is going to be Skulls.
Thought I'd be easy on myself to start off, I've drawn a lot of skulls over the years so have an idea how to do them. Will get round to using some reference for these instead of going by memory, but will hopefully be fun to do, everybody loves a skull!

Well here goes

This is my first post on here and I'm already at the end of the first month of sketches. Computer breakdowns meant I've been unable to start off this blog until now. This is my first time blogging and I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but hopefully in the next few days I will have scanned in all the sketches for this month and posted them up here. Then in the future I'm hoping to upload the next weeks sketches at the end of the week.
