yup, I used italian Renaissance portrait as inspiration. One thing I always loved of Lynch's Dune is the mix of retro and futuristic in the fashion and decorations, and I sought to do something similar.
I wanted her tattoo to look unique and believable. real tattoos have a lot of detail usually, whereas when someone draws a character with a tattoo, they often seem to be just simple decorations to fill blank spaces. So I went kinda wildie here , hehe! And thanks man! If people see the evolution I'm striving to attain in my art, it's a big satisfaction for me.
