    It's the simple ones that turn out to be a pain in the ass, isn't it?

    ha, always. it's like if there're only 6 elements to a design, it's easier to notice a flaw in one of them than if there were 60.

    also, if you have enough of the handle showing below the eyeball that the color would be repeated would help. assuming it's going to be colored.

    I agree with it not lining up, but I think that the entry point on the eyeball is the bigger issue. Its got a flat line as if it were a blade, but its getting skewered by a stick. It needs to be rounded.

    good point.

    also, I just now saw how Mustang saw that eyeball as an asshole. Now I can't not see it.

    Good points on the entry slash and handle lining up. Not going to color it.
    And, of course, I see an asshole now, also.
    (Damn you, Mustang)

    Mustang was talking about the hole in the A (refereed to as an A-hole) if it gets colored I don't think the eyeball will look like an asshole anyways.

    Ditto on the brush though, if the entry to the eye was a bit more rounded, and some of the brush handle was visible below the eye it would definitely read better as skewering the eye.

    Pfft I dig it as is.
    The people in the market this type of art is geared towards would know exactly what this is without any more mods to it.

    Yeah, most of the artists I paint with are really into Kustom Kulture art (as am I). It's wild that the Japanese have taken our stuff and put a spin on it.

    I'll let it dry for 3 or 4 days and then clean up the guide lines and install it back in the car.

    So the keyhole is the asshole?
    You'll never be able to open your glovebox without thinking of butt sex again.

    I found this old toolbox in a thrift store and painted it to hold my pinstriping supplies.

    most definitely.

    and by my calculations, I've got about another year before that color eats through my roof.

    Whenever I hand letter anything I photograph it and keep it on file. I think manipulated hand lettering still looks better than using fonts.

    Caricature of the actor Danny Trejo. WIP for a fake sign I'm working on based on "Machete"

    I knew who it was without recognizing the name, but I think his chin is slightly too large and to the left.

    I'll look at it this weekend and make some adjustments. I'll be using it in either in a fake movie poster or sign.
    In the Tarantino movie "Grindhouse" there are 4 fake movie trailers. One is a cool one by Rob Zombie called "Werewolf Women of the SS" and another one is "Machete" featuring Danny Trejo as a kind of a Death Wish killer. I was watching the trailer for Machete (it's about 4 minutes) and noticed a sign in one of the scenes. It said Machete's Chop Shop and had like a Tattoo style heart in the center. I want to replace the heart with Trejo's head and reproduce the sign on plywood cut-out. That's why I kept the caricature fairly simple and all hard line.
    They are actually making the fake trailer into a full-length film and releasing it in 2010.

    I'm getting back to using only traditional tools for inking and studying the line work of the old horror comic artists. I recreated a panel from Jack Davis using the same tools that he used in the 50's. Hunt crow quill dip pen and a sable brush.

    Iruka- yeah, I use smooth bristol for the paper. I've tried paper with some tooth but nibs tear into it and brushes don't glide over it very easy.
