...It was probably StarBursts (The sour kind... they make MY tongue hemorrhage, I don't see why they couldn't cause it on the wrist, too!)...Nice job all around!!! The mostly black and white makes the rainbow "blood" really stand out. It's really good contrast!
One thing that's always struck me about your work is your depiction of hands. You show a lot of variance in your hand gestures, always working in conjunction with a facial expression of some sort to complete a scene. You've done well in playing on your strengths here, but i see you're also trying something a little different.
I'm talking of course of your palette choice. I like it. You've made a soft image out of a very limited range of colours without losing detail, especially on the areas that count; the face and hands which you seem to have a particular knack for.
Initially I thought the nose looked a little awkward, in that its shape was noticeable imbalanced to one side. I can see what i think is some hints of facial contortion going on in the lips, which would explain it as a part of the whole expression, but at first glance i didn't percieve it that way.
The vibe i'm getting from this is that you're describing yourself as simple at first glance, but full of interesting things, much of which is let out through the use of the pen/artistic implement, which in this case appears to be what may or may not have left that cut in the wrist so as to allow the colours to flow outward.
Or maybe i'm being far more analytical than i should be.
Either way, it's a good piece. I understand you don't post much on DA these days as you tend to be preoccupied with adult commission work. I'm currently practicing my anatomy, and i'm curious, does it ever get tiresome drawing body curvature to the extend that you do? I've always seemed to lean on an overly cartoony style as a sort of crutch and it's taking it's toll on my understanding of anatomy.
