swirls by brian9267 swirls by brian9267
this is how i kill time in classes. i do em with just a really fine sharpie and i just start anywhere and just elaborate on everything. this one took about 45 minutes.

i drew one on camp which went all up and down my arm. that took about an hour and a half. the only down side is i cant ever do any on my right arm. im not ambidextrous.

That's awesome! Have you ever heard of henna tattoos? You should do some of those tattoos.

that's really incredible i would probably never be able to do anything like this on my palm because my hands sweat a lot and it would mess it up but i'll probably try something like this some time this week

I love this. Not just the design but your hand has an interesting movement to it.

I would always draw on myself during class also. Such a great time to make up new patterns and focus on creating greatly detailed work, of course, killing time in an insanely boring class does this to a person :]

Though, I would never draw on my inner hand due to smudging :/

thankyou! nowadays im either listening intently or fast asleep in my classes so it doesnt leave much room for hand-drawing. i only ever drew on my palms because the skin on the back of my hands are too squidgy and the pores and lines too deep, so the ink just spreads on its own accord which ruins the design.

Wow, this completely blew me away. This reminds me of henna tattoos, but it looks even more fine.
I've been drawing on my hands and doing a kind of hand art for years, but I have never done anything this intricate. I'm really inspired by this piece.

~45 minutes. I guess youre a master in your own skills, but it must be time consuming.

oh right, i get you. nah i enjoy it. i sort of get into this trance of concentration as im doing it so i dont notice the time. but at times it feels sort of draining (for lack of a better word) and so i dont go do it every week or anything. maybe i should..
