ive got an odd sleeve on my right arm. the artist went ahead and did small stars as filler, but i honestly think it looks crappy, i like small stars and all, but theyre just big and far spaced. any ideas?

did he not tell you he was doing it? did not notice him doing it? why don't you try asking him what he was thinking while doing it.. it's obviously not finished, what does he have planned for the background?

I think that's actually a pretty cool idea. Bigger stars would help to fill in the big gaps you have.

And/or you could also do some grey wash clouds, maybe some kinda smokey looking ones...

By the way, I like the pieces you have so far.

I like the idea of bigger stars with more dimension and shading.

That's exactly my thought. I really like sleeves with small, simple stars and dots...but only when there isn't too much space to fill in. With this particular piece, there's a decent amount of empty space that needs to be filled, so I think something with more dimension and what not, like clouds or whatever, would really work well.

The top side of the forearem is full. The larger negative space is on the underneath. And I still wouldn't put much more. Let the tattoos speak for themselves. I wouldn't clutter up your arm with background.

I'd cover up those little asterisks*****. Get real stars, blk/gry background. leave a space and do negative stars (skin showing through as stars.) It could have been done 10000% better. That's just a lazy attempt at filler if you ask me, and if you didn't I don't care Razz

oh and don't forget the polka dots.. Very Happy

i usually agree with this bastard, but i got to disagree now.

it's all traditional-neo traditional work so far. why use gay ass negative space ???? dots and tiny "asterisks" were use as a filler back then. why not now and stick with the theme ?!
