2 sessions down to start this full sleeve dedicated to the sea/ocean theme.
Did you know that female fauns are known as maenads?
One long session to get this beautiful detailed portrait done on forearm.
Really enjoyed creating this double exposition piece . I could say that nature themes pieces are among my favourite subjects. It’s all we really have, it’s purity, strength, vastness.
This was a fun work to do, long session for this Jack Sparrow themed forearm. I can’t fail to admit that Pirates of the Caribbean is my guilty pleasure movie franchise.
A long session for this piece. Part of a sleeve. It’s always a pleasure to work with beautiful artistic photography where the emotion is in the foreground.
A woman with snakes. A recurring combination recently. 2 full day sessions to fill up the upper arm.
Added some new elements to the sleeve dedicated to French wildlife / animal kingdom. The smaller the subject the more surprising details it hides. A lot of unusual and interesting textures to work in this piece.
Certain themes are born by juxtaposing subjects; they start telling stories to which each of us brings our own meaning, engraved on skin.
Some subjects ask for certain graphic framing to convey a more intense emotion, like this skull embellished with brush strokes, swipes and scratches. I believe that graphic elements can help carry realistic pieces to a different level.
New animal sleeve almost finished, the whole forearm is healed and upper part is fresh. As a tradition there is a squirrel!
