Tattooed Samurai col concept by chibi-j Tattooed Samurai col concept by chibi-j
This was a very quickly coloured concept for my tattooed Samurai (about 15mins). Itís just to help me visualise colours for the tattoos. The traditional ones I have been looking at are very colourful, and I was wondering if the vibrant colours look out of place...

Any comments on that?

Very good! I wonder if I might use the image to portray a character in an upcoming game?

Looks like a very convincing Asian tattoo to me. It's brilliant.

I don't need to tell you that this is amazing. But you should stop fantasizing about Samurai XP The colours look beautiful though. Very nice.

What, are you kidding? The colours look totally in place. At least to me. It just fits in with that traditional Japanese feel, but gives it that natural sparkle of colour. Maybe the greens need to be toned down slightly, but that's about it. More of a muddy green, if you know what I mean. Good tech, btw. Did you use 'The Man's' brushes??? :giggle: I thought it was Painter at first. i still can't get that feel with PS... :p
