    Red face Mom Tattoo

    Made this wanting to play with ages old idea of a mom Tattoo. I initially wanted to have a pillow effect around the letters but had a hard time with so did shading instead. Letters are sinking into the pillow/balloon of these heart. Pillow is made of satin sort of. But the reference I used was a really non reflective heart balloon.

    I found myself actually practicing shading, values, and dimension. My first large scale effort at this.

    Looking for constructive criticism and ways I can improve. I'm self directed study using expert videos and books to learn from. Name:  IMG_7963.jpg

    Are the Freudian vagina symbols intentional?
    I also think the pillow effect doesn't come through, I suggest to get some reference. Just grab a pillow, set up a single light source and put something heavy on it to observe how the fabric changes and where shadows appear.

    Are you concerned at all about how this would translate into something actually tattooable? Or is this strictly a drawing?
