societyofskullserpentdagger I rushed through it. Totally not me but I felt rushed. So its a bit sloppy here n there but its alright. I fix all my rough areas by mashing white into it. Theres a lot of color blending goin on. I went warm, cool, warm, cool, warm, cool. I had a lot of fun with that. My dancing bird is complete. I sometimes hear that my pieces look too traditional, but theyre not. Theyd know that if they knew something bout technical art. Im using more of an illustrative approach using more dynamic lines, shapes and angles. Not enough folks wanna master the basics before moving onto changing things up being obsessed with this whole idea of "being different". their shit look silly as shit as they take way too much artistic liberties with some cultural reference they dont jack shit about or respect. Learn to walk before you run son. Dont wanna pay dues? Well go fuck yourself. Im out. #skullserpentdagger 2w

societyofskullserpentdagger Alright over here I used the copic grey set. Got like six pieces in it, I forgot. But I dumped all this grey in there with the copic grey set right. Did the bg all dark obviously cuz the phoenix gonna be bright. Gotta create that contrast. So yeah I love using bg clouds like that. Weaving elements of the main subject through em in and out, coming and going. Makes it visually interesting. Its super fun workin with different layers. Then I start layin down a lil color with color pencils. Prismas are my favorite. I chose a cool tone to give me a sense of direction in which I wanna take the piece. Cool against warm and vice versa. I wanna keep it kinda pastelly get what im sayin. Bright and uplifting. Yeah and then I continue to color... 2w

societyofskullserpentdagger Hatin ass ig got me croppin all these nice details out. But ok here im done hardlining this phoenix. Technically it aint even a phoenix. Its called a fung wong, literally translating to "bird, king" or king of all birds. So u get what its all about. That whole firebird reincarnation shit dont even apply here so lets not get it mixed up. Theres all this other woompty woomp about this but im not here to discuss folklore. Anyways with lining, I was trying to avoid micro-lining too much, but I cant help it. That shit is way too much fun. You guys see them spurs on its legs? If u guys go back far enough in my instagram you will see this pic of a mean ass lookin rooster with gigantic spurs. Thats where I got it from. Shit look sick man. If u look carefully, there are three "whips" that curls upward. This helps the composition, by creating gesture lines that helps leads the viewer's eye upwards. I got things here and there that help break up the visual monotony. I actually wanted to put more jewelry on the bird. The fuck is just one necklace am I right? I used these staedtler drafting pens. I like how smooth the ink is. I use the line weights accordingly to sorta simulate how I tattoo with my lining set which is 803, 1205, flared7. I used to use these textures needles. But I stopped givin a fuck. Texture these nuts. Anyways, next! 2w

societyofskullserpentdagger Ok I know yall wanna see art. Heres some art. Here im drawin this phoenix right. So I lay down the first layer and im tellin myself "lines like a dancer, dynamic like a dancer. Elegant like a balet dancer" chest out and chin up high cuz its proud. facing the sky cuz its full of confidence. Its crown is majestic creating a sense of royalty and also round shapes. Keep things rounder rather than sharp and aggressive. I lays it down with hard lead then line with this copic 08. In hindsight I dont know why the fuck I only added one strip of flame. Its probably cuz im dumb. Anyways lets move on to the next image... 2w

societyofskullserpentdagger chinese style dragon flash. Inspired by classic pinky yun dragons. I used to watch pinky blast these shits out ten mins or sometimes even faster, true freehand, meaning there was no stenciling or pen marks anywhere. And Itll only be fifty bucks. He was the real deal.
So in tribute, I will do any of these for fifty to a hundred depending on size for a limited time. Dm me
