Drafting An Octopus Tattoo Artwork Then Re-Created In Watercolor & Ink Brush For Body Art | Filmed In Joey Pang's Private Workshop | http://www.JoeyPang.com | http://www.TattooTemple.com
"A short time lapse feature showing the creation of the 'Octopoda' artwork followed by a quick look at the piece after her application sessions. This composition was made using a graphic mixture technique, the artwork's detailed lines are first drafted implementing fine tipped pens with additional movements, textures and variations brought out through complimentary abstract ink and watercolor brush work. Completed in just two sessions there are three distinct stages for the artwork's creation prior to both freehand drawing as well as placement at the sitting itself. A photo of the finished tattoo artwork is currently available in the online gallery. We can't tell you what a pleasure it's been working with you Erin and do hope your able to make it back to South East Asia sometime over the coming years"
Drafting The 'Dreaming In Water & Flames' Tattoo Art Then Re-Created In Watercolor & Ink Brush For Body Art | Filmed In Joey Pang's Private Workshop | http://www.JoeyPang.com | http://www.TattooTemple.com
"A time lapse video composition of the 'Dreaming In Water & Flames' full back tattoo piece, created for our friend Emery. As previously mentioned his artwork was initially painted in vibrant watercolor yet changed to purely black and gray. This was done to further accentuate the stronger ink-brush aesthetics and decided on right before commencing his sessions. As depicted the creation process is rather extensive with the drawing forming the compositions' foundation. From there, using the drafted fine lines as guiding points, each individual colored layer is brushed and then re-aligned. The exception being the blue flames where the distance between forms inverted spacing, the colored outer shading allowing for the inner structures to materialize. Because of the inks movement as well as drying times it is often best to separate, retaining more detailed and signature flows depicted within each portion. Due to the highly fluid, organic brush movements there is a need to ensure distance and 'empty' space throughout so as not to overpower any one of the elements. Again it was our honor working with you on this Emery. We look forward to seeing you whenever you are next in town"
Time Lapse Video Of Chinese Ink Brush Calligraphy Tattoo Artwork Application By Joey Pang | Standing In Sunlight | http://www.JoeyPang.com | http://www.TattooTemple.hk
"The next time-lapse video showcasing the creation of Chinese ink brush calligraphy tattoo art. Although originally painted as a larger composition, due to specific preferences regarding proportions, this series was able to be truncated and kept within roughly a quarter back area. The smaller the possible 'canvas' within this aesthetic the less finer-details that are able to be captured yet the majority of the delicate brush fractures from the writing were retained. Calligraphy artwork for these tattoo sessions is initially created by Joey Pang on rice paper using traditional techniques. The placement of these characters' are transferred onto the skin as an outline to provide an indication of movement and positioning before the session commences. Essentially though, the entire calligraphy piece is meticulously re-created by hand during the tattooing process. Thank you again for all the thought, effort and communication over the years Rachel - it was a pleasure creating this with you. We hope to be able to visit your side of the world sometime soon"
Fluid Water Brush Chinese Painting | Filmed In Joey Pang's Private Workshop This Composition Was Designed For A Client / As Body Art | http://www.JoeyPang.com | http://www.TattooTemple.hk
"An abstract floral scene created for a full back tattoo composition entitled 'A Moment Captured'. The artwork features a dark-brush fish leaping against highly stylized flower-trees into the sunrise / sunset, created in a primarily dispersed soft-brush tone with more pronounced fine brush structural highlights. Although individually traditionally featured in Chinese scroll and or watercolor paintings the elements' movement as well as overall composition is a strong, modern departure from the classics. Painted over a number of days, as the dispersion effects from the ink take time to materialize on the specialist paper, the application session was based on the painting itself yet freehanded. A separate video of the tattooing will be released shortly"
Dragon Lines Then Re-Created In Chinese Ink Brush For Body Art | Filmed In Joey Pang's Private Workshop This Composition Was Designed For A Client / As Body Art | http://www.JoeyPang.com | http://www.TattooTemple.hk
"A very short time-lapse feature of Joey Pang drafting then setting the lines of an upper-torso dragon tattoo composition. This artwork was recreated again following this drawing, using Chinese calligraphy brushes for the final piece. Even with both canvases on-hand still some areas needed to be freehand drawn on the client to ensure the most tailored alignment. Although the watercolor aesthetic is highly fluid with the gradations and ink fractures forming shapes as opposed to 'hard' lines, in order to convey elements such as the dragon these pieces still have to capture certain levels of sharp or contrasting details throughout. This is particularly pertinent to the face, claws, tail as well as scales so that the dragon's defining features and not 'lost' in the brush movement. The sharpness of the focal points further allows for smoother abstraction across the body. This layered approach to contrasting is a marked departure from traditional techniques in either school yet Joey Pang juxtaposes the two so as to form dynamic levels as well as accounting for the artwork's healed appearance on skin. A pleasure working with you on this Jonathan and we hope to see you here in Hong Kong soon"
