Astounding! I could stare for hours and still be at awe over all the details! What medium did you use for this to achieve this level of awesomeness? All digital? The colour gradient is so nice! I would be really interested how you made this... how much time did this take you? I'm just.... wow....
I am not worthy to gaze at this and bow to your skill.
Used SAI yes all digital. All together this was 22 layers but its only just cause I was getting lazy on coloring on the same layer. Its actual 4 layers. First layer it the line work, next I tried coloring it gray scale (just black and white) for the shadow and highlights, next was an overlay layer for the colors, last layer was for the extra shine/sliminess. But since there is no gradient tool I had to mess around with the colors myself :c
Wasn't really keeping track of time, it was "whenever I got on". I know it was over 20 hours.
Really?! I think you would make an excellent tattoo artist if it wasnt for the fear of course. Maybe one day you can overcome it and do great wonders for all those who want to decorate themselves in ink.
