Default Marm O. discs

I have dyed several discs and I am not really a fan. I prefer drawing directly onto my discs.
As I finish discs I will drop photos of them into this thread

Pretty cool! What did you use? Does it wipe off? Smudge? Fade? Do you use a stencil?

Thanks
It's sharpie; it will last for a real long time without bleeding. I didn't plan real well and his goatee spilled onto the Thumtrac. The perimeter Sharpie will eventually wear off but in my experience it will take a year of playing before that happens. I'll draw it back on when that happens.
I have a sharpied disc that was the first purchase I made so it is 15 years old... Sharpie is in the middle of the disc and still looks great
I prefer drawing over dyeing for several reasons. The eventual bleed of the dye is a big reason. The other is that I like DX plastic

No stencil, no pre-existing image... just my imagination, 1 thick Sharpie and 1 thin Sharpie. I don't knowingly copy other people's work

This made me chuckle. Nice job! I've always thought it was amazing how people can draw something straight from their head. My uncle is an incredible artist and as a kid I'd always ask him to draw things and he'd be able to do it in minutes just from his imagination. It always blew my mind watching him do it. I unfortunately didn't inherit that talent. Haha!

My son did some sharpie art on a disc and I got more comments on that than any dye, ever.
Sadly, it was picked up and never returned.

Nice art, btw.

That is outstanding...
I'd like to see what you could do to a Fossil Serpent.
That plastic blend feels like it'd work great for Sharpie work.
