This is weird. I figured the long blue strips that are the latest addition to my wings would be itching like hell once the top layer of skin started to come off, judging by my experience with the initial lines and the black/brown. But the only sensation I’m feeling now is a slight achiness when I flex my elbow. Initially there was a fair amount of ache on the shoulder, especially near to the half-inch-wide bit of redness around the very top of my deltoids.
Not that I’m complaining. I just wonder if this is because my body has kind of given up being itchy there, due to this repeated abuse. It could also be because of the very different nature of this session; it’s mostly a couple of very long, very solid strips of color, done with one of the wider needles, instead of a lot of little fiddly stuff done with a small needle. There’s also the possibility that this color is simply less itch-inducing; there’s some fiddly stuff to be added in the same color, so I guess I’ll find out when that happens.
There’s another session planned for this Friday, then two weeks off due to my con schedule. Dunno what color we’ll be doing.
Anyway, I guess I should get to work on the next page of Rita now.
edit: Speaking of Rita, I just checked my email: I’ll have a proof in my hands by Friday, and if it looks good then I should be able to have ~30 copies in hand for Rainfurrest! WOO.
