Tattoo commission progress!Posted: June 29, 2011
Hello hello! Just a quick update to show you the initial sketch and the first color rough for the hibiscus tattoo I’m design for a commissioner. :}
This one is slightly different than I generally work in that I’m doing everything digitally. I generally prefer to start with a physical sketch, but I figured it was worth a shot to just try and get everything done without using any paper at all this time around. I’m eco-friendly!
Here is the initial under drawing:
Which I then colored over! For this piece, I was working on about eleven different layers in Photoshop. Altogether, it’s one of my smaller pieces as far as layers are concerned.
Here is the first color rough:
There’s some stuff about it I’d like to clean and tighten but I wanted to get my client’s opinion on colors first. Hope it’s well received!
