  1. No body art as of yet, but I'd like to get one of the henna designs I usually do on my feet during the summer. I'd keep the same earthy color in the tattoo, let the artist work a little with my design to refine it or add their own style. I would consider it a collaboration and would want my artistic style and the tattoo artists style to be seen.
  2. I treat it like I do the differences between Blade Runner and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Both are amazing stories as they stand alone, the film version is the creative vision of more than one person and when you have multiple thumbs in the pie, it won't ever be the same again.
  3. Currently working on Reading Lolita in Tehran. It is one of the best books I've read this year, it has got me motivated to read more classic literature and to be thankful for each and every book I own.
  4. TOV, as always I bow to your wisdom. Thank you so much for your input.
  5. Just bumping this up in hopes of getting a comment on my thoughts in the previous post. I was going to send it to my friend soon, but I'm still debating the finish.
  6. Thank you everyone. jc123: He did kill himself, slit his throat. TOV: That quad is not finished, the line is his blood and the curve is the neckline of her clothing. I'm thinking the blood line needs some errant droplets to give it interest and soften the harsh directionality it moves the eye (yes? no? suggestions?). Her clothing is a point of debate as well, it is blank as of yet, but I feel a soft draped look in mid tones to darken the corner would give it weight to balance the opposite corner. Not too fussy, just some wrinkles to make the fabric of it apparent (yes? no? suggestions?).
  7. Need some comments and suggestions... A friend asked that I illustrate his short story, the end scene of which is the lovers in a final embrace after they have both committed suicide. I've reworked the woman's neck a couple of times and have become frustrated. I don't want to do any more work on it because the integrity of the paper will start to suffer. I'm wondering if it is realistic looking as is or if I do need to change her throat (maybe some suggestions as to what its lacking). link removed
  8. Very poignant KG. Thank you for sharing something so personal with us.
  9. I went, the food wasn't that good and the one here was run by an idiot (forgot to get the liquor license) so they didn't have alcohol to make the bad food taste better. The car rallies are the best part, I like seeing the old roadsters and restored trucks and all. They also have a biker rally too then I can look at the cool bikes.
  10. I think one of the most romantic moments with my boyfriend was when we went to a beach near sun set. The waves were rather lazy, so there was only a only a little surf and foam. It was a dog beach, so there were 5-6 happy canines soaking wet and lolled tongued galloping free. The sky was on fire, red, orange bleeding into the darker blues of the night approaching. We embraced and watched the colors grow more muted as the sun slid behind the cliff to the south west.
  11. I feel your pain. Especially the idea of being put to the back of the shelf. That to me was hurtful, the idea someone would put you somewhere so they could forget. Very poignant.
  12. It wouldn't be paralysed forever, just the standard time. I've seen ladies that had the stuff slide down their face and they then looked like a young person who recently had a stroke.
