I really wanted to use some bright colors to bring it to life and show some energy. Thanks Ash for sitting like a champ love ya beautiful.

Start to a huge cover up on my buddy Joe. Sits like a champ can’t wait to do more work on him. Most of this is healed some is fresh and some we went back into because the scaring from his old tattoo rejected some ink. #owl #nature #animals #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #artist #ink #inked #emporium1476 #portland #pdx #oregon @fusion_ink @the_glove_4_the_artist @inkmachines_christian

Here is the finished James Brown piece. So in the 3rd stage I will have decided and laid in the under painting tones useing warms and cools to make areas project and recess. Much the same way atmospheric perspective makes things feel close or far. Then I’ll start laying in the flesh tones. I willingly leave areas where the under painting colors show through. In others places I will use the under painting to create my values in my flesh. I mainly work off of a black and white reference so that my values are clear and I have more freedom with color. Once I’ve filled the whole thing in I reassess any areas that may need more exaggeration  like eyes wrinkles lips. Then highlights and done. This piece was 5 hrs long thanks for lookin. #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #artist #music #star #legend #singer #emporium1476 #portland #pdx #oregon @fusion_ink @inkmachines_christian @the_glove_4_the_artist

WIP Steps 1&2 stencil and outline/solid black I usually structure out my pieces like this now I know the structure is there. I then begin to “tile” in my under painting this will set the “mood for the piece. Usually dark warms around the nose and cheeks cools around the eyes and mouth. More to come in a couple hrs. The whole tattoo is done in one session usually 5 hrs or so. #cecilporter #color #realism #tattoos #realistic #portrait #tattoo #art #ink #inked #emporium1476 #wip #portland #oregon @fusion_ink @the_glove_4_the_artist @inkmachines_christian
