Hi all please be gentle with me, these are some of my older stuff when I could still see to do it (not drawn anything for 5 or more years)
my next drawing will be rubbish but once I've plucked up the courage to try again I will do my best

the tiger I altered and tattooed on my bottom not posted that as would not want to offend anyone.
hope you like them, not sure what to try first, something easy like maybe a rhino or bird, any suggestions.

Great drawings. I realize what you mean by bad eyesight. I have been loosing mine due to Parkinson's. I got some heavy duty eye wear. I started back with a couple of horses and redrew one once I hit stride.

You definitely have talent!

Thanks for the nice replys sad to say anything I do now will be rubbish compared to those.

That remains to be seen. I have a feeling you could do well blindfolded. Very good work.

great work KP :)
have you looked into laser eye surgery?

Wonderful drawings!!!

As for eyesight...I wear glasses, and even though they are a low strength, they still drive me bonkers.

Welcome, welcome!! I can't wait to see more of your art. :wink:

Maybe that could be the next art show exercise.

Do not give them any ideas just !!! The self portrait one was bad enough!!

I'd rather lose both hands than my eyes

Thanks for all the warm words and encouragement there are so many great artist on here I can learn from. I've never been very good at portraits, they never look like who they're supposed to be, I tried drawing myself years ago (which is a big challenge as my body is covered in tattoos) but I didn't recognise the person I had drawn.

kpnuts you will have to add an album of your ink. I have 6 or 7 tattoos and am hooked, like most people get. :biggrin:

04-10-2016, 02:12 PM
Do you mean my personal ink or ink I've done on others.

04-10-2016, 06:47 PM
kpnuts I did not realize u are a tattoo cool. :biggrin:

I was referring to the ink on yourself, but you could also do an album of tattoos you've done, maybe your favorites or something.

As a tattoo artist, do you have a specialty? For artist loves to do portraits, but isn't thrilled with stippling/ dot work.

Maybe I will do that,I lost count how many I have, if I count the cover ups it must be over 100. personally I loved animals or flowers I'll see if I can dig out some of the ones I've done on otheres

Well, sounds like we will get along just fine. Lol

I am actually wanting a new one on my forearm, and am having trouble with the design. Maybe you can help me. ( she says pleading, because she sucks at it) :devil:

I don't believe you suck at anything, if I can be of help I will. I did take some pics of my tattoo today and posted them, but then I took them down again I thought they were a bit too revealing an may have offended someone. (not that I posted all of my tatts that would have been rude but my bottom was bare).
