Digital Painting, Geisha art

hello everyone, thanks for looking at our site. I’m grateful to have had some time to think about my life and had time to work on projects that I had in my mind, having time to work on your ideas is a blessing, well this lockdown gave me the opportunity to. I’m sure everyone had enough time to do, and learn all the things we didn’t have time to before. With this digital paint, I started with a sketch, then finished digitally. I love Japanese art, however I like do do my own twist on it, so I end up braking some rules, which is interesting for some, but not so much for those, who believe you should stick with the tradition. I respect every tradition out there. However when it comes to art, I like to do my own thing, and not be limited with what you can, or can not do. Hopefully we will be out of this lockdown soon. Hope everyone is keeping safe.

Traditional Oil Painting by Louis

Traditional oil painting on canvas, all made by hand no brush. Mermaid and Egyptian Woman in a battle. Us humans have always battled each other, for different reasons, however the Mermaid is still managing to stay calm and still. And that should apply to our life, if someone attacks you, you should stay calm, as you are not in control of how others act, think, or behave. And if you stay still and calm, they will only attack themselves. Traditional oil painting takes a lot longer than a digital paint, however, the feel of accomplishment and energy you achieve in the end in priceless. I do art because I love the process, so if a paint will take long due to being traditional, good, as o love the process. And I try to do art I want to seeI varnished a lot in the end so it looks quiet glossy

Oil on canvas. Tattoo Artist in lock down

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting our site. The lockdown is nearly over, hopefully, they will not extend this lock down for longer, and give us the opportunity to work. I have been working on my traditional oil painting every so often. In the era of digital art, I still go back to the roots of traditional painting as it requires you to think more and being careful with every move you make, as we do not have a delete button on a traditional canvas, it’s in my opinion similar to tattooing, as in every decision you make it leaves a mark in the canvas, so the thought process is at larger scale compare to digital painting. In this oils painting, I had the idea of a mermaid fighting an Egyptian female warrior, I’m a big fan of Egyptian culture and fantasy art. Keep an eye for more updates on the final complete image of this oil painting.

Realistic Buddha Tattoo by Louis Santos

This Buddha was a part of Andy’s sleeve. The outer of his arm was the realistic Coy Carp as you can see in the picture bellow. Working with Andy is a mix of ideas and emotions. We have the same philosophy about life, however we are open to new ideas, and we feel free to discuss with an open mind. All these details add to a positive vibe in the sessions, and it contributes to a better outcome on the tattoo. Every time I see an image of a Buddha, it reminds me of meditation, and meditation for sure helps us with concentration. So if you have a job where it requires concentration, I would for sure recommend meditation, it’s a good habit to have, you mite struggle at first, but if you stick to it, like anything in life, you will start seeing the benefits of it. I had a realistic approach to this tattoo, with the artistic freedom Andy gave me, also contributed to the end result. Thank you Andy, I look forward to see you and have deep conversations with you.
