What happens when peeps like my drawings?

I make more drawings!

This is an abstract dragon design that was in a catalog that I got at least 15 years ago.  I always thought it would make a pretty cool design for a tattoo if I was ever to do something like that.  But alas, I'm fickle and needle phobic so I'll just have to stick to drawing it.  The design was originally by an artist by the name of Nancy Chien-Eriksen.  I modified the design a bit after listening to some advice that was given on the Ink Master show.  I kinda like the curvier lines that I did better than the original, although there's room for refinement in my opinion.  It didn't help that I chose to break out the jet black ebony pencil to do this.  Damn thing is a bitch to work with for fine line work. I guess I like making myself crazy. I had to use my trusty mechanical fine point to clean up some of the lines and details.  Anyway, damn scanner picked up all the smudges that I thought I had cleaned up.  >:(

Arekino, I know you've seen these two already...

A quick drawing

I can't believe I was left alone for long enough to actually complete this.  :)
