    I'll make this brief as i only have shitty webcam pics and i'm not done with it yet, but first off, here's the design i asked the artist to work from:

    [​IMG]

    The bottom part of my first (and only, so far :o) snowboard. Basically my pride and joy.
    Went up to camden yesterday to Evil From the Needle (http://www.evilfromtheneedle.com) and started my session with Levi, cool Hungarian dude.
    Here's the progress after 3 hours, part of which was him drawing the design on, part of which was me taking a piss half way through :o

    [​IMG]

    Plenty more shading/colouring to do and some more detail to be done on the outside and inside of my arm. The moon (which you can just about make out in this picture) also needs to be detailed, but so far i fucking love what he's done with it.
    I'll update when i get decent pics or it gets finished, whichever happens first :bigthumb:

    Have to wait 2 weeks minimum but i'm a bit busy for a while, so it'll probably be 4 weeks at least.

    Thanks :bigthumb: I always feel weird saying "thanks" when i get complimented on it, because it's not like i did it myself. I feel like saying don't tell me, tell the guy that did it :o
    The picture really doesn't do it justice, he's done such a good job capturing the detail and the brush strokes. I feel like a bit of an ass but i can't walk past a mirrored surface without looking at it and smiling :o

    I love your usertext, it's something i've been very tempted to get tattoo'd but never got round to it. I believe Jimi Hendrix said it :bowdown:
