All About The Eyes

Hello Mike My name is Nick D'Angelo and I'm 20 years old, opened my own shop in Medina, NY when i was 19.

I ordered your DVD and it was somehow damaged during shipping so i'm still waiting on my new one to return.

I've learned my portraits so far by just studying your work constantly, wheres the dark space, where you put your white, what color to contrast the whites of the eyes, etc... And i recently spent way too much money on every color skin candy had to offer.

I'm working harder every day to get out of this small town, i'd like you to check out my online portfolio and leave me some feedback on my color portraits.

RE: All About The Eyes

Your definitely on your way,i don't know how much time your spending on your tattoos,but one suggestion that would help,is to slow down,even if it takes you an extra hour,two hours or even double the time to finish a piece,slow down and get it solid and as clean as possible,speed will come later with experience.And try your hardest to get better photographs of your work even if it means taking 100 pictures of one tattoo to get that right shot.Again after playing with your camera and taking the extra time to take that many photos you'll learn the best ways to photograph your work.I still take a minimum of 25 pictures of a tattoo,sometimes more.

RE: All About The Eyes

Thanks for the pointers mike!

I received he DVD this morning finally, and did a tattoo of a molson canadian bottle covered in condensation tonight.

I took my time, got the perfect picture, and the tattoo looks much smoother fades very nice from the extra time i took to perfect every detail. Check it out again in my online portfolio from the previous post.

Soon enough after i study the DVD more i'll have some even better artwork.

Thanks
