Incantation by tiamat9 Incantation by tiamat9
This is a recent restoration of an older tattoo design of mine, inspired by traditional Japanese art and surrealism. Ballpoint pen on paper.

Great job, I like how you played with the opacity of the ink!  The symbol of her neck is a very nice touch (I read your explanation of its meaning below ^^) Always interesting to see human figures in this style of yours!

You draw so beautifully in this style! What does the Japanese lettering on the person's neck represent?

You are very welcome, my friend-- and I agree that it can be quite interesting drawing things different to those we draw more often. :) I get the feeling, at least in my experience, that even if the results are not what one expects, there are still certain lessons that can be applied to other images. :)
