This is an older study that was for a tattoo. I ended up developing it more on photoshop doing layers, playing with hues and adding effects.

Lots more thickening of lines and shade work next.

Stage two of a half sleeve.
Heres a progression shot of a lady in a snow scene. Ive added snowflakes thru the design with cloud swirls .
Breaking the design down into greywash and the actual color gray was interesting process for me to do.
No color in this one!

four horsemen of the apocalypse sleeve stage 3

Lower half of the four horsemen of the apocalypse sleeve.
Theres a rider in knights armour riding on this freaked out horse.

dominatrix sleeve

stage 2 of a full sleeve.
This sleeve was designed to capture dominating and submissive female characters.
The reference was taken originally from my partner and her sister dressed in character
The photo shots were taken of one character standing over the other in a dominating way.
The pool table was used in this photo incident for one of the girls to tower over the submissive one and dramatic lighting was used.
Yes, strange you may think, tho the photos gave good reference that I otherwise could not have found.
It was good to create somthing from scratch with much control.
In the end the design deviated from the original photos, tho captured the desired effect.
