Japanese Masks September 15th - 21st

Day 258. Japanese Noh mask with chrysanthemum tattoo design. The sketch is looking a little bit grubby as I shaded with a very soft pencil and as the days go by the sketches I've used a soft pencil on tend to get a bit smudged up.

Day 259. Hannya mask design.

Day 260. Japanese Noh theatre mask.

Day 261. Hannya with peonies and wave tattoo design.

Day 262. Hannya mask tattoo design.

Day 263. Japanese Noh mask tattoo design with wind and cherry blossom background.

Day 264. Hannya with flames. A very poor effort here I must admit but its still a sketch.

Japanese Masks September 1st - 7th

Day 244. Straight forward Hannya mask, referenced from an actual mask. There is probably not going to be a lot to say about these sketches they are all going to be pretty much of a muchness.

Day 245. Hannya mask with peonies and wind bars background.

Day 246. Hannya mask with waves.

Day 247. Hannya mask 3/4 view with waves.

Day 248. Japanese hannya mask tattoo design.

Day 249. Hannya mask with waves and peony.

Septembers theme is going to be Japanese Masks, I would imagine is is going to mainly consist of Hannya Masks but I hope to throw in a few other Noh masks along the way.

Also I have been putting up the sketches in progress on Vine, just search on vine for Ginny Tattoos or the hashtag #sketchaday.

Heres to Septembers sketches.
