Nothing overly exciting from this appointment. Finished some more background on my right hip and blubbery muffin top. The real excitement is in the coming appointments. There are only a few more outlined background areas that can get shaded. Besides the background, the dragon’s head gets shaded as well as some black on the koi. I think we’re going with a mottled color scheme on the koi, a pattern of black, white and some other color on the scales. Once those three are shaded with black, I have the option of going into color on my back or finishing the outline and outlining my sleeves. I’m leaning towards the outlines. As exciting as color is, it doesn’t hold as well as black (from my understanding). I would rather finish all the outlines, shade the rest of it, and then go into color all over. That’s the plan for now anyway! The idea of having work done on my arms and not my body is thrilling!
