Zelda Villian Tattoo Sleeve by ShawnCoss Zelda Villian Tattoo Sleeve by ShawnCoss
Was commissioned a month or so ago to do a sleeve tattoo design with Zelda villians.

I decided to challenge myself by doing it all in photoshop and to force myself to become better and more familiar with the wacom tablet.

I'll let you be the judge on how I did.

Timelapse of said art as well: [link]

I'd prefer you not only because this was paid for and is already on someone else's arm. If you don't mind having the same tattoo as someone else then by all means go for it

I think the best part is how Bongo Bongo is just rubbing its hands all over the Redead's face. It's all very serious-looking until I get to that bit, and then I see that, and the cringing posture the Redead has going on, and it ends up just a little bit hilarious just because of how uncomfortable this thing that is incapable of facial expressions looks with having those hands feeling up its face.

I could tell you things about it that I would have wanted differently, but that's not the point i want to get across. Because it is an incredible piece of work. I like the way the images just kept going and morphing. The colors were very vivid and captivating. I really like the dark background with the neon green radiation seeping upwards. Especially in the eyes of the giant character at the bottom left. The shading and brush stroke fades are what stands out the most to me... Keep creating, it's inspiring!!!!
