Amazing! how did you get the tats to blend so well with the skin? Normally they look too fresh or painted on.
It’s all about the colour - I picked a grey which was quite neutral, and I also glazed over the top of all the flesh once the painting was done with various different colours to create nuance in the skin tones. I think that really helped pull it together.
Fantastic work all over. I personally think this is your best piece to date. Of course those gorgeous tattoos help. :)
Thanks Luke :)
Very nicely painted tattos and flesh tones which make him a really strong and tough guy :)
I call that a blast, Peter. Very, very cool work on this guy! The only thing I personally miss between all that skin and tattoo glory are some old scars somewhere ... this would have made him even more nasty and grim ... Great job!
I think you are probably right Roman - would add another dimension to the piece
Really excelant work
