I changed the original tattoo source to sepia, deleted the side hand, filtered it in filter forge with HDRtist to get the artistic frame and make all the body hair less prominent.
I had to cut bits like tusks off the elephant to warp and transform them to fit the tattoo. I matched the eyes and ears to the original tattoo as close as I could. The original tat can be seen on the legs and lower ears of the animal. (2 years and 351 days ago)
You can never run out of time when you have it on you.
I basically traced the clockwork parts of the tattoo to make the parts I needed, added textures to them, bevelled and embossed them, added shadows, did some freehand painting, some soft light overlays, changed background color, did some dodge and burn and that's about it. (2 years and 351 days ago)
