Pics 1 & 2 are the inspiration.
Pic 3 freehand outline
4 finished first session outline only 2.5 hours
5 first shading session. 3 hrs and three smoke breaks.
next session in three weeks.
Cool reference pic, outline looks good, shading looks so-so, but the artist may be coming in for a 2nd pass on some of that.
I was thinking the same. Hopefully it ends well though.
yeah awesome reference. interested in seeing the end product.
Ditto, still needs a lot of work, wanna see it done
I agree that it still has a lot of work to go. 5.5 hrs in were expecting 12-14. It is grainy and unrefined currently. I am definitely someone who can take criticism. I know I’m not getting tattooed by a world renowned artist who is booked up for six months but I believe he does good work. Next appt. July 7th. Updates to follow.
Here’s a little poll. Three options on tentacles.
3-snake belly scales on the underside
which way you guys think I should go?
ill be honest. The octopus option is my least favorite because I don’t want it to look like Davey Jones from that pirate movie.
really starting to come together
This is gonna look sick when is done mate. As for your question if i where you ill try to keep it true to the way The Great Old One is described In the books. So octopus from me although snake scales would look god damn evil.

I know what you mean. I hear the chant in my dreams. Going to get the miskatonic university emblem somewhere.
Well I’ve decided to try and get it finished up next Saturday. (Told my wife I was stealing her appt. Which she scheduled right after mine) so I’m hoping for at least 6 hrs. Will be my longest session to date if everything goes according to plan.
The first round of shading has healed up nicely. I’m getting tired of waiting for the 7th.
I still would like some feedback on the tentacles.
Double booked for tomoro. 5pm to midnight. Hopefully well be able to finish it up.
Since I couldn’t get any feedback on tentacles I’m just going to have him draw each way up to see which I like best. Updates to follow.
Update: 5 hour session July 7th. Next apt august 11th.
We still have some rough shading to do. A lot of smoothing. And I were going to add color to the eyes. I’m Lovin it.
I expected a bit more feedback. Anyways. Its healing nicely. I have to get it finished on my next apt because my artist has to have surgery on his stretching hand. He’s going to be out for 3-4 months. I’m hoping another 4-5 hours and I can take a break. getting tattooed on every other paycheck gets taxing when you do 3-5 hrs each time.
