Description: Hey folks, just quickly submitting a cool tutorial I whipped up yesterday. In this lesson, you'll be learning β€œhow to draw a cool tattoo, step by step”. I'm not sure if you noticed, but encrypted in the spider is a wacky face with a mouth, ascending tongue, and a lower jaw. I tried to do a type of mind trick with the lower part of the spider's face. I guess from listening to too much Pink Floyd, you come out with strange results...haha. I have to go draw LIVE in a few minutes, so I'll write more about this later! Thank you so much for viewing folks!
