I think I had way too much free time during class my senior year, this (as well as numerous other ink sketches) was created during that time. I tried a couple or so different concept sketches for this after the basic pose for it popped into my head one day during class. This is the one I am most satisfied with. I pretty much suck at doing tribal and stylized pictures, but I thought I'd try this in my own style, I guess turning out loosely tribal. The image in the top left hand corner is of a pic of it I painted on a block on a wall at my high school. The original design wouldn't have worked well on the rough surface, so I just did it that way. Sorry about the blurriness of that picture, but if I used flash it glared on the block, plus the image is meant to be viewed from a distance anyway.
Original inking- sketched with pencil and inked with microns (or maybe it was a uni-ball..I don't know)
