Snake Tattoo by JessiBeans Snake Tattoo by JessiBeans
For CHOW #193 - CA Ink on ConceptArt.org (thread here: [link] ) The topic was "Design a character that is at least 25% covered in tattoos. There are lots of types of tattoos, from tramp stamps, to yakuza body suits, to super mario bros half-sleeves, to MS13 face pieces. The style is up to you, but your character should feel invested in their tattoos. Let your creativity flow through the canvas of your character's skin. Have fun with it."

I wanted her to be the devil, not just some tattooed girl, and load it with lots of snake and apple and occult imagery. Woot.

Adobe Photoshop CS4, Wacom Intuos 4 (my preciousssssssssss)

Lovely pic. I particularly love the smoky skulls. That's exactly what the goddamn cigarrette is all about: premature death. Too many people for my taste smoke in my city, and I hate it. They just pollute the air, and why should we non-smokers have to suffer for the smokers' vices? Oh, and it smells horrible!

I love her. She's such a strong character; she leaps right off the screen and sits in my room, smoking, staring at me with all-seeing eyes. Lips puckered slightly, she wills me to do what I want and forget about what I should do.

She's amazing. A beautiful piece of art!

This is really awesome, I don't know why but it goes really well with the song I'm listening too xD It's nit dark or anything but it is a strange combinations of tunes. Anyways, this is really good. I love her pose and how her face has an expression like 'I'm better than you." (:
