Dragon Leg Tattoo by jocarra Dragon Leg Tattoo by jocarra
A large dragon tattoo I drew on my leg while camping at Oroville. I used a yellow and orange highlighter (the orange ran out halfway through) along with a black ballpoint pen and a tiny bit of black Sharpie.

Oh, and that's a monster mosquito bite on my side. I still have it now, a week later :b

Highlighter and ballpoint pen. ~1.5 hours

Hey there :) Normally you'd have to commission me - that is, pay me to make you a custom image - rather than have me draw up a bunch of sketches that you may or may not want in the end. You describe to me what you'd like, or show me existing images that you kind of like, and then I make it for you - you pay me, and then I give you the finished image.

i guess that would make since now wouldn't it :) sorry its my first time interested in buying a commission . what is your price? also if i was to describe i would like to have something that would be something like the one you drew on your leg here but more masculine, darker colors because yellow in tattoo's fade so the darker the colors the longer and the nicer the tattoo would look. I'm looking for something that would go from thigh down to my foot or at least something close. i love the detail in your pic especially on the wings because you make the picture look almost 3d. I'm not sure if you need more details on it if so i can try to look for something else.

My price varies with complexity, medium, and size - however, you're probably looking at a $75 minimum, ish. For instance, would a digital image suffice, or would you want an original graphite piece? And what size image would you want? If you want to talk further, you can email me at jocarra@gmail.com

With a lot of patience, is the answer :3 It was really hot, and you couldn't do much of anything without over-heating, so I just sat in the shade and drew on myself XD

I still don't understand how you made that with HIGHLIGHTERS! and a pen, it's just INCOMPREHENSIBLE! 0___0 But it's amazing none the less... you should design tatoos <<' i mean, that one on your leg looks just like one!

*chuckles* Thank you very much :3

You start with just yellow. No lines, just shapes - colour in where you think the body will be. Then I started adding orange, which made the dark parts. I blended it in using the yellow highlighter again. And then after I had rough shapes and details, I did the fine details and shading using a black ballpoint pen.
