haha, law at the studio im working is you tattoo yourself first! so double the pressure haha I've heard pigskin is much tougher, and it has a hard layer on the top so you need to press harder, thanks alot- if i have any questions I wil be sure to ask! :)

Sorry, but I don't have a premium membership or I'd be glad to critique this piece. The comment page probably isn't the place. Drop me a note if you want me to tear it apart (I like it - a couple of minor criticisms). Real close to finishing another pin-up (someone new) and started a new Savannah. Drop me a line.

I don't know what order you're reading the stuff I sent you, so this might be repetitive, but . . . It's an impressive tat with beautiful colors. I really like the blue reflected light on top of the nose. There are 2 things that I would change. The whiskers on the underside of the chin are too vertical - they should probably angle out a bit on the sides, and the lower canines are a bit rounded. I know that leopards probably have rounded teeth, but sharpening them just a little would make it look a little scarier. I don't remember the author, but there's a classic art book called "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". One of the exercises the author uses is to have his students pick a subject, imagine it, and then close their eyes and draw it. It's an interesting thing to do. You focus on what it is that makes the object what it is. I couldn't see anyone closing their eyes and drawing a leopard with rounded teeth. I'm not on your page now, so I can't look at the tat to see if I notice anything else, but those two things stood out to me. It is a real nice tat. If I saw it on one of my students, I'd have to check it out. I'll look again when I go to your page and see if I notice anything else. (It's strange how many people believe that pastels are completely unforgiving. Doing tats would be scary. If you fuck up . . . it'll be all over the internet. Do you laugh at bad tats on the net, or do you feel sorry for 'em, or . . . ?)

And people with no artistic ability always want to give directions to the artist. That's one of the reasons why I'm pushing pin-up over portrait. When I do pin-up, I'm in complete control of everything I paint. Of course the photo shoots aren't that way, but when a sexy girl tells me what she thinks makes her sexy, and demonstrates by posing - yum. And since they spend an hour every morning primping, and major portions of their income buying sexy clothes, I'd be an idiot to not listen to them. They don't tell me what to paint, though, and that's not the case with portraits. No light over dark with tats must be frustrating.

I live in AZ (Phoenix area), so if I see that tat on someone (some dude's chest ???), I'll check it out (from a distance). Tat artists probably get a tremendous range in terms of the quality of their canvas. Sometimes I envy you - sometimes not so much.
