Two-Face tattoo from a few weeks ago
I Ov Thee Dragon Tattoo
I don’t normally track my work, but as I was sketching out this piece I kept thinking to myself “dammit woman, take some pictures!” So I did and I’m actually happy I did, though I just wish I had taken MORE ;u;
Regardless, it’s a fairly basic showing of my work process and the pictures are pretty bad (I was lazy and just used my phone) but it gets the idea across at any rate.
Lately I’ve been playing with wet on wet and dry on wet painting with watercolours and have had quite the success with it.
Before I start painting, I like to get a bit of an idea of what colours I want to use and the mood and feel that those colours will ultimately create. For TwoFace, I started with red and yellow, working the colour with water until I’m satisfied. There isn’t a really secret to the madness, just till you think it looks good, and really, more colour never hurt anyone ;d
To get a nice contrast going, I used a deep purple to start roughing in the shadows and deeper burned areas. Here I got a little … carried away. To say the least, I piled on the colour and moved from the purple to browns and a bit of blue. I also added in some orange and yellow to pull the background back in.
For Harvey’s face, I was aiming for a younger man and used golds and blues for his skin. Several different tones of brown and a bit of blue was used for his hair and stubblies.
To finish, I deepened the colour of the background on both sides to help pull it all together. I also darkened the red quite significantly, though I didn’t add it as I uploaded the final earlier (last week? The week before? I can’t remember.)
Anyway, sorry for the rambling post of boreville (;
