My BBC America promo for Dr. Who at San Diego Comic Con 2011 - a full tattoo sleeve.
Here is the video of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan wearing them: [link]
This was actually commissioned by BBC America for a promotion at Comic Con International in San Diego (I was there too). Because of this - BBC specifically directed me to NOT use the Daleks. The art is exclusively about the 2011 and 2012 seasons which they told me did not include the Daleks in any way. Most importantly, the Silence had to be prominent.
My husband contributed to the art as well, creating the Tardis and the Sonic Screwdriver and some of the background.
The creation of this piece is really funny - but there's no time to share in this tiny space.
PLATFORM: PC Laptop (from an RV and hotel room)
TOOLS: Cintiq 12WX
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects', but there are simple strokes and Brush strokes, gradients and gradient meshes, and many many objects with varying transparency settings.
