Lady Death Zodiac clean by ToolKitten
Lady Death Zodiac clean
the final 13th cover in the zodiac series. this project spanned more than a year, and the final one was the best in my own opinion. one of those times, now looking back you see its flaws, but at the time it came out with little to no trouble or fiddling, and without any reference.

drawn and colored by me, nei ruffino.

Do you still do tattoo work? I'd do just about anything for even the smallest sitting with you at the Denver Comic Con this year. It would be the best souvenir ever.
