Tribal Beauty


The challenge for this piece was pretty straight forward. Create an illustration depicting a nude woman with natural beauty and a prominent back tattoo. In addition, she had to have a a natural hairstyle, in the form of an afro or a fade, plus the tattoo had to be tribal in style.  With that in mind I quickly began sketching out the ideas you see below.

The solution was to take all information I’d gathered from the client and apply it as precisely as I could. By sketching a series of thumbnails before deciding the direction to go with this one.  During this process I decided to give the tribal tattoos and her face equal attention. It was important for her expression to exude a sense of confidence about herself and the awesome art displayed on her back and elbow. Style wise I wanted to play with texture and keep the color palette to a minimum.

” I am very pleased with the finished product and it is what I requested. I did not have a set look for the product, but it turned out nice and well designed. Marv provided me with a original, well designed and impeccable illustration. My overall experience was professional and the work was done in a timely manner. I absolutely love the final print and I would recommend for others to work with ‘Just Cool’ in the future!”
