Moogle Tattoo by Klyde-Chroma Moogle Tattoo by Klyde-Chroma
This was session 1 on my first "Moogle" tattoo!! This is a very exciting subject for me, as the Final Fantasy series played a large role in my creative development as a child..... I drew moogles a'plenty in my youth.... expect an updated finished moogle in a few weeks.

Aaah! A MOOGLE! :glomp:
I also have a moogle fixation from a misspent youth in front of the monkey machine hehe
There's very little I can say about this that hasn't already been pointed out, but I'll say it anyway because it's true ;)
Holy shit, you render your colours and shading better than 3DStudioMax. WHAT IS YOUR SECRET?
Everyone seems to have forgotten his nose though.... I'd like to see a closeup of that. From here it actually looks edible! And, of course, perfectly three dimensional. Emphasis on "perfectly".
What needs to be finished on this one? A little shading on his legs?

Thank you so much for taking the time to really LOOK at the piece and respond to its nature... I adore when people really "look" at my work and not just glance.... beyond that let me first thank you for your flatterry and kind words but truly.... this piece in my eyes is far from perfect, though your praise stretches a smile across my face non-the-less.

To answer your question about what need be finished, a second session on the moogle itself to enhance the contrast and a backdrop incorporating Shadow from FF6 is in the works.... lots o' cools to really make that moogle pop...... additionally an on camera light source will be added by way of a "crystal" from the series.... I sort of start working backward on this one...... hehe tattoo create and learn from error I suppose.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. I'm dying to get more work on this piece done. Hopefully soon.... it kills me waiting to finish some stuff that I'm really into.

Where did you go to get it done? It looks pretty nice, very clean.

Kupo.

I did it, I work at Slingin' Ink Tattooing and Body Piercing in Northeast Pennsylvania :) and an extra "thank you" to you for complimenting the piece to me without realizing I did it.... that was sort of like paying me a compliment behind my back in a sense... and some can argue, the compliments paid when you are not present are the most flatterring kind.

very cute, very smooth! your blending is spectacular here, i love the values of pink. looks like it's practically CGed onto the skin rather than tattooed. thumbs up!

Thanks, I'm glad you noticed my blending here because I actually tried something a bit different. I experimented with the technique before but not all that much so it was a bit of a "well-informed-risk" if you will.... I actually shaded a great deal of that with a tight 3 liner and single needle believe it or not. Running in a nice soft hitting shader, I just used fast sweeping consistant hand motions.... Something like how you would shade using a bic pen if your familiar.... The entire ball on his head was done that way actually...
