Love Hurts!

Love hurts started out with me sketching tattoos in my sketchbook one night while watching LA Ink! I had all these lovely tattoos drawn out so I just had to find a fearless

maiden to make use of them...Love Hurts is the result.

This little maiden started out as mostly a biro drawing but when I added white acrylic over the top for the highlights, the biro kept bleeding through the paint and turning blue. I had to add more acrylic than I wanted to but in the end I really like how she turned out. Next time I will be using micro pens so hopefully the ink bleed won't be an issue.

She is drawn on 300lb saunders Waterford paper with a rough surface which I find keeps me from getting too detailed with my marks and is a favourite surface of mine to work with. I will definitely be doing more of this type of work as I really enjoyed it and I think it suits my style.
