Solaris- Tigershark and Lionfish by Tyshea Solaris- Tigershark and Lionfish by Tyshea

I’ve been busy lately so I haven’t had the chance to draw and post art, oops!

But here’s some tattoo references I did for Ai-Bee's Solaris babies Rilu and Atka.

Rilu’s pirate nickname is Tigershark and Atka is Lionfish; I tried to incorporate each animal into their tattoos in abstract-ish ways, like the water/tiger stripe hybrid on Rilu’s, along with the shark teeth at the bottom. Atka’s is more complex since lionfish tend to have pretty complicated striping, but the face on their right shoulder is supposed to be an abstracted visage of a lionfish’s face.

Even though they act like father and daughter, they’re not related by blood. Rilu is Black/Hawaiian mix, so their tats take a lot of Hawaiian cues, while Atka is Maori and is pretty obviously inspired by their traditional tattoos

More of this project can be found in this gallery:

Atka's the smooth-talking crime veteran with low tolerance for things that go against his plans, and Rilu is the hard-headed youngster that always gets into trouble and loves every minute of it
Thanks! :)

Cool! :)
I definitely get the feel for them. 
I asked cause I'm an avid personality grapher. XD
I'm interested in all the different personalities that go around. Using a lot of internet resources I've managed to make some kind of personality map, if you will.
I doubt you'd want any help per se with personality, your characters are really vivid already, but if you ever do I can certainly help XD
Have fun with Solaris~ ;J

Welp.

I.

Hm.

I.

Welp.

I don't even fucking know how to properly react to this that isn't mentioning my boner in some manner so I suppose we'll just have to tread carefully.
I REALLY LOVE THE MUSCLES AND THE BODY SHAPES (OW BONER) AND I'M SO PROUD OF YOU FOR THOSE KILLER TATTOO DESIGNS (BONER NO) AND I THINK MY FAVORITE PART IN GENERAL IS THE THICK AS FUCK ARMS ON BOTH OF THEM IN PROPORTION TO THEIR BODIES. DO YOU WORK OUT? WHERE DO YOU WORK OUT?
