Well, sketchathon turned out to be more drinking, eating pizza and chatathon, but some sketching was done, and it gave me a chance to look through picks awesome sketchbook which left me sick with envy and put my feeble underused sketchbook to shame! Although it has made me more determined to make better use of mine in the future...


And then; thursday morning completely plain boring old calf, Thursday night; Blam!


An epic battle of cheerleaders versus zombies taking place on my leg!
Pick did an awesome job and managed to get this whole thing done in 8 hours (ish)
Unfortunately that means no certificate for me :( I'm fairly certain I couldn't have lasted the required 11+ hours though!

If you would sell that sketcbook, you would have to search pretty long to find someone who could affort a fitting price ;)

Holy hellfire how did you walk after 8 hours on a calf tattoo?
Your artist did a blinding job but in the studios I work in they say not to work more than 4 hours on a lower leg due to swelling. It has been known to swell so much it can cut off the circulation and cause obvious problems. Makes me wince just thinking about it.
But honestly, it looks sick :)

yeah, to be honest it swelled up like a bastard and hurt for weeks! We only had a small window of opportunity to get it done though, so had to do it in one sitting.
