Kat Von D
A drawing of the very talented celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D, well known from the TV series 'L.A. Ink'. This was done for a Drawing Jam over at The Drawing Board.
The green of tattoos and the pink of skin was a great chance for me to experiment with complimentary opposites in the colour scheme. Also in the original reference photo she was wearing an oversized grey singlet which was unflattering and covered half her tattoos, so I had the added challenge of getting everything right underneath. Pretty happy with it.
