Face Tattoo


A digital painting done for fun a few years ago after visiting New Zealand.

I was inspired by famous New Zealand artist, Charles Goldie (1870-1947). He did some amazing portraits of Maori people, mostly elders with face tattoos.

Patrick- Thanks. The texture was scanned into and overlayed in Photoshop. The painting was done using the process from my digital painting tutorial, which does involve Painter as one of the steps.

Ghostofmacbeth- Thankyou.
