Hand Art 6 - Mermaid by sadwonderland Hand Art 6 - Mermaid by sadwonderland
Another hand drawing...haven't done one in a while. 20 minutes while eating popcorn :) Colored this one with Copics XD

When I wiggle my wrist, she swims! And when I move my hand around in a circle, she does some kinda funky hula dance. Kinda reminds me of Petunia, Little Pete's tattoo.

As with all my hand art, it doesn't photograph well. The skin scales on your hand reflect light and the pen makes theme even shinier, which messes with the flash :)

So when are you planning to rinse it off? :O

When will you shower!

So many questions.. all leading to the destruction of art. @_@

It would be funny/cool if you fell asleep on your arm, and woke up with a mermaid on your face XD

That's amazing. I really like the mermaid's tail and how you've got typically henna patterns on the finger edges of the "glove." Very cool.

sadwonderland Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2007
yeah, unless you have a cut in your skin you're not going to get ink poisoning. Especially since I coat my hands with a layer of hair spray first so the ink goes on evenly...it also keeps the ink from actually touching my skin. :)

really? :O_o: Does it help the ink last longer? :D coz sometimes I'd like to keep my drawings a bit more than 3 days :XD: (you should feel that way too, since that tattoo is so freaking awesome! oh, and btw, copics actually work on your skin? o_o Don't they smudge?)
