Andrew Swarbrick  I am a tattoo artist and oilpainter, owner of lefthand path tattoos in Christchurch NewZealand. Also an avid Warhammer 40k player :)


All done with this Bloodborne inspired sleeve. Fun times!!!

"Captain creepy and the never-ending painting" Do you like eels boy? There is a possibility I might get this done before we go to the U.K. :0


So here's where I am calling it for today. I got a tonne of work done and a couple of podcasts listened to. Much wrinkles and colour balancing, and slowly working out my lighting as I go and correcting my drawing mistakes :)

Painting wrinkles while listening to @joerogan podcasts :)

Vaaaaaaderrrrr!!!!!! #inkjecta

Today's effort... I need to get out of the fumes and do some housework :)

Here is my limited palette for this painting.... Pthalo blue Alizarin crimson Transparent orange Radiant white and Flake white replacement.. all Gamblin brand colours. This should provide me with everything I need to complete a realistic (As real as it can be in a surreal painting haha!) Portrait.

Here is a portion of the underpainting video. You can see the whole thing on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/andrewswarbricktattoos

Here's a short excerpt of the very beginning from my time lapse of my preparation for this next painting. You can see the complete video on my Facebook (link on my profile) you can see how I build up the shapes and my decision making in working through the composition. I hope you enjoy! Now to film the underpainting :)

Time to finish some paintings before I embark in a bit of a different direction or two. YAY!!!!

Some sweet progress on this badass! #inkjecta
