Red Hair Dye

Not entirely happy with how this turned out. I meant to make this guy look skinnier and well, less punk. I kind of like some things about the way he ended up on paper, but if I had time to paint him again, I'd have redrawn the pose before painting to loosen it up a bit more.

Slightly dark, which is an interesting new diretion for you. I like the simple and extremely effective color palate. And it riminds me of my days with bright pink hair!

"Never bothering to read instructions, Paul didn't realize his mistake until he tried to scrub the Rit dye off. Then his mom came home, and caught him red-handed."

Cool picture. I have to agree with Mike about the placement of the skull. Great!

Thanks everyone :) Kent, now that I think about it, I might have accidentally ripped off your drawergeeks spiderman colour-wise. Ha ha. I'm sorry.

I drew the skull that way because secretly I'd like a shirt like that. Hmmm... maybe I could make that happen :)
