If you're good at drawing sketches and you hypothetically wanted to get into being a professional tattoo artist, what new skills would you need to learn, what would you need to include in your portfolio, and how would you go about getting an apprenticeship?

Thanks in advance.

Im not into tattooing but know a girl who is. Your portfolio should consist of atleast, 1 animal, 1 face, 1 female, 2 textual works, 1 repetitive pattern (think Tribal tattoo) 2 completely original works of your own and then pad the rest till you get to 10 all up.

In regards to getting an apprenticeship, being a tattoo artist is kind of the "in" thing at the moment, go to your local store, take your portfolio and ask them if you'd be able to start and apprenticeship at their store.

Good luck!

Very sloppy. These look more like incomplete ideas than finished paintings. Paint them again.

Hey do you any of y'all remeber that guy from awhile back that posted under the name INDICA STEEZ? He or she had a bunch of pencil drawings. I thought they were cool but he used to get shit for spamming the boards with them. Anyone know what I'm talking about/have them saved? I would like to see more again

I have taken an interest in erotic art. In a non sexual way I appreciate the beauty and fluidity of the nude female form in its entirety. May anyone who has knowledge direct me to some great works in this field? Creativity, clear representation, and beauty is a must. Oc is a bonus. Show me your best drawn lady curtains

Anyone else doing the old watercolour? I've been getting into plein air, since the weather is getting better in germany at the moment :)

This is an old one, I had no present for my grandparents so I whipped something up real quick..

here's a tip: make art that you enjoy making and looking at.
the "art gallery business" is a trap.

side note, tattoos are vastly different from paintings or ink sketches.
being able to apply a *quality* tattoo is no easy feat. even if you can draw you wouldn't be worth shit as a tattooer without a solid foundation of the technical aspect of using skin as a medium.

sure, you're probably better at drawing than lots of tattooers (because of how many shitty tattooers there are in your town) catch my drift?

apologies for the rant, I in no way am trying to dissuade you from making art. making art is fucking rad, no matter what you make. I get a little tired of people thinking that just because they can draw that they should be able to operate a tattoo machine just fine.

I want to to draw then paint

I have so much going on in my head so many visions of crazy things and unique ideas then that gets amplified by a 1000x when taking certain drugs or even better when I've detoxes from drugs and have crazy lucid dreams.

The problems I have are these
>proportions-the bottom pic was a quick 5second drawing but that's how I always end up drawing when I even put some effort into it.
>I can see my minds eye but I just can't seem to portray it on paper.
>I'm thinking the whole shading part has a big thing to do why my drawings look shit.

Last year I downloaded the drawing on the right side of the brain,it was interesting and the top pic is supposed to be me.I was feeling so tired from work then and looked rough as toast.
I only got up to the part where you draw that picture upside down,tried it twice and for the life of me couldn't do it.Then I got busy with other things and forgot all about it.

So first of besides going through that book again what others would suggest.


Second I want to learn all this so I can learn to paint.Ill start of water colouring my paintings the hopefully move onto painting canvas with acrylic paint.

I've read it doesn't matter if ye can't draw as painting is different but I think it does duento you still needing a sense of these proportions and shadings and what not.

Without sounding negative about my self I don't think it is for me though.I have a super creative mind but I always used to mess about trying to draw when I was a kid but all the pics looked shit.
Any ways id just like to put my thoughts onto paper by drawing rather than in words.
So any help is much appreciate it

>I don't think it is for me though
Its not for everyone. I know some INCREDIBLY talented artists who give up because the idea of sitting down and doing whatever just stops appealing to them, and im talking all spectrum of artist the period blood artists to the hyperrealisitc artists.
Give it a go. you never know until you try, if you give up you give up. atleast you tried.

>id just like to put my thoughts onto paper by drawing rather than in words.
Then do it. dont worry about coherency you're only starting out.

>others would suggest
use books as references not manuals. Having trouble with hands? flick open a book and see how they do it, see what they recommend you try.

>I can learn to paint
Moving from water colour to acrylic is actually a downgrade. Acrylic paint is the most beginner friendly paint you can use. Watercolours are ruthless.

>if ye can't draw as painting is different
Depends on what your idea of painting is. most of my paintings are purely conceptual works, heres a link that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zozMksqnYk maybe might help you understand modern art if you want. But the idea that painting is anything uniform is wrong, you can do whatever you want with paint.


Btw if you're interested the picture i posted is by Kenny Scharf.

I had the same problem starting out. 20 years of "I'm not creative, I can't paint anyway" stamped into my head soI never even tried it.
You have a creative mind with lacking abilities to express them so give yourself some time to adapt. start with anatomy/figuredrawing lessons or whatever you want to learn and work on it every day. even a quick scribble, just putting down some shadows/highights is enough if you're not in the mood for more. seeing in shadow/light and their values is the most important thing in my opinion aswell, you got that one right much earlier than me..
Daily practice is the most important thing, expect it to take about 6 weeks until it's part of your routine and you will start craving it.

Try different mediums, I've had my mind blown by inkwashes, plain grey paintings but shading with them is amazing. Never would have thought to even touch them, but I found my great grandmothers ink and just tried it..pic related, my first try with ink

I actually have the exact same piece of paper laying around, just found it the other day. probably not going to finish that book aswell.. Also about 6 unfinished canvases and an unfinished mural in my room. Just do it whenever you feel like it and sprinkle some deliberate practice all over it.
