Bella Muetre Tattoo Design

This is a design for my wife. She likes the Bella Muerte style, and here Dad had a Grimm Reaper Tattooed on his forearm. Im memorial to him she would like to have this, or something like it tattooed. We will likely have RJM added into the blade of the scythe.
This image was done with ink and Watercolour paint. The only adjustment in the computer was to remove the paper colour, which was a dark cream.

Redraw of the Archies

 Whenever I see the Archies redrawn to look more modern I hate the style they choose. The Archies are iconic, making them difficult to change. if anything they should be done even more graphically like the 50's/60's almost block graphic style you see in beer posters, or Betty Page / hot-rod stuff.
Here are the Archies done in my hand. The illustration is actually a bit older, as I forgot to upload it. Maybe 2 - 3 years old. If I did comic books, I would love to do the Archies.
