Pocket Watch Tattoo Design for Sis

I've never designed a tattoo before, but my sister, Brooke, wanted me to design her a pocket watch tattoo...and she gave me no direction other than that, so this is what I came up with.
She wants some writing on it, but I'm not a calligrapher....

David Bowie

This took about 12 episodes of Modern Family to get done, it was pretty fun to do.

Largely inspired by:

and loosely based off this bowie picture, mainly the pose, I aged him to more of his "Heathen" album years.

Steve Ustinksky Sculpted Model

This was my first Maquette I ever made, so I won't grill myself too hard for him not being perfect. But all and all I'm pretty pleased with him, and I'm glad I had the chance to traditionally paint him like the classic days in Animation, even though that took far far too long, and other projects got pushed back because of it, but all in all I can't complain too much.

The picture below is the pose I chose from my model pack to bring to life.

I started with a wood block and wire, then bulked up some skulpy on it,

Then I started fixing the features, and adding in details.

I then re-did the entire head and got rid of the wire inside to make it proportioned to him and then there was no more wire sticking out.

I then kept fixing and adding features.

Then it was time to gloss him up, and get rid of little pieces sticking off of him,

Then it was time to paint him up, about ten hours to do this right.

Here he is with his kissy lips.


Then I painted the stage, and ta da I was done-zies

Concept and Character

Alrighty, so for this final assignment I originally wanted to do a GTA4 inspired type thing, but this had too many flaws in it to continue with it.

So I altered my composition so a cop was coming in through a gate and then my guy was hiding in a park behind a building, outside a city

So I added in the city and some fern trees and the sky. This didn't take to much time, but I wanted to do it right.

I then decided to put it at winter time and I spent forever painting some abstract purple trees and putting snow on them, plus the path way. And instead of a cop I changed the guy to a completely dead guy in the snow.

I then changed the character to Santa Clause marking off his naughty list.

Then I put it on steroids and added in the details and altered my composition slightly to open it up, put some snow in, some dragged out blood, more bodies, a little yellow and blue and fixed the writing on the "Naughy list"

And digital painting class is officially over, meaning my future weekends are almost free.
