In need of critique.

A guy I worked with was always begging me to draw him the girl from The Eels beautiful freak cover, but in my own style. and he wants to have it tattooed on him.

I always said no, cause I didnt think I can do something good enough, especially if it's gonna be permanent on someones body. so I was against it.
but he really wants me to do it, so I tried.

I'd really appreciate comments and critique,
I dont want to give it to him if it looks like crap.



P.S
I feel pretty stupid, cause I've been telling him for months that I'm working on it, whenever he'd ask how it's going.
when infact I've only started to do it 20 minutes ago.
so he'll be getting something that he thinks I worked months on, when infact it only took a couple of minutes.

I've never seen the cover your talking about, but the picture is not crappy at all. It's pretty unique and cool.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

Looks cooooool.


Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

Nah, it's not crap.
The only comment i'd make is that her eyes in your pic are further out than her head. They're more circular than the ovals the original has. But that's your style, and that's what he asked for. So it's all good.

well ofcourse, I'm not a tattoo artist.
the tattoo artist will make it more tattoo worthy.
