Creating Depth in a Tattoo!

submitted on 09.14.18

One of my goals with most of my work is to produce a sense of tangible depth- the more convincing the effect, the better. With Biomech work, there are sometimes two distinct layers of mech stuff, a foreground and background layer, and I always try to use all the tricks to produce depth. Reserving true whites for the foreground only is one such trick- note how the background highlights are done in creamy light colors which cause the foreground highlights to look brighter by comparison. You can read about these tricks in more detail in the Reserve chapter of your subscription.
