Went ahead and started the background on this one. Feels like now it's really turning into a sleeve.
Still have to outline the rest of the snake up the arm, but excited to see all those little nooks filled in.
I'm happy that more and more people are getting into a very dense more traditional style of Japanese background. It can be a little intimidating at first for some people to get into that much black and dense coverage, but it really has a richness and power that can't be beat.
