    Chow 193 :: CA Ink - HOST : Sinix


    ROUND #193 :: CA Ink

    DESCRIPTION

The style is up to you, but your character should feel invested in their tattoos. Let your creativity flow through the canvas of your character's skin. Have fun with it."

    This is kind of brilliant idea- tons of freedom and great tattoos to boot. I can't wait to get started!

    WOOT

    This one made me so happy, I lost some sleep I need for work lol. I was originally going to go with the embedded tattoos as runic or alchemy symbols used to harness ones own inner power for channeling, but I felt I need to really focus on the basics to get better so I picked a more grounded subject and one closer to my past. The Musician Punk! =)

    p.s. The tats are coming, don't you worry.

    My first wip for this.

    Oh man, what a coincidence... I just did another character challenge based on tattoos... If I have time, maybe I'll take a whack at this one, too (the if-I-have-time factor could be a problem, though.)

    Just for laughs, here's what I ended up with for the other challenge - a Maori Ta Moko master who "fights" by tattooing people with magic Ta Moko patterns, thereby putting them under his spell (long story, but that's the gist.)

    So now if I do this challenge I guess I'll have to think of something completely different, huh...

    EDIT: Argh. Can anyone else see an image here? It SAYS there's an image but I can't see nothin'...

    Nice subject. Whipped out a sketch already.

    EDIT: Hmm my attachment doesn't work for some reason? Might be temporary, but if someone knows why, I'd like to know

    Ok, it's just some kind of temporary problem with the site, no worries then.

    Sweet, this topic really sounds fun! Maybe I will actually have time to finish this one, unlike my Atlantian dude. Also, I hope that attachment problem gets fixed soon... :/

    I'm going for the hulky Mexican-ish gangmember with a lot of skin to cover. Character is pretty much done, tattoo designs will follow.

    I love all of what you guys have done so far, this one is gonna be tough to compete with!

    Here's the start of mine... I need to stick with a theme with the tattoos, cause I'm starting to get too random with what gets put on him. Anyway, just thought I'd show some progress so far.

    one of the ideas I have... I have 4 so I am gonna try and get 3 or 4 of them half done and finish the one that looks less craptastic.

    EDIT: Anyone else think her feet are too big and wonky??? if I made them smaller do you think it would give better dimension? gah so rusty!

    At first I wasn't so excited, cause I didn't think I could come up with anything worthy. But I downloaded the Hostile Takeover tutorial and I'm inspired!

    Going with an aztec or mayan (more like a generic blend of the two) warrior with war tattoos and possibly some kill tattoos (for all his kills). I just hope I can take whats in my head and put it in this damn computer canvas.

    WIP #1 - Being so new here, and just getting back into drawing seriously after a 6 year hiatus, I'd love any criticism or suggestions. Be as harsh as needed, I need it!

    Wonderful topic! I absolutely love painting tattoos, so I just have to get involved with this one
    Beautiful starts everyone, I see a lot of punk rockers out there haha!

    My idea was inspired by suspension piercing (which is where someone is suspended into the air through piercings in their skin). As I was sketching, I came up with the idea that the ropes that would be suspending this character became the tattoo, like the tattoos where supporting them and lifting them up. I dunno, just an idea

    Any and all feedback is more than welcome!
