BIOMECH TATTOO CONSTRUCTION

by Aaron Cain



BIOMECH TATTOO CONSTRUCTION SEMINAR


This seminar will feature my process of concept, design, layout, drawing-on and the initial, rough linework. I start by having the victim look through my favorite books and mark anything that is interesting to them. Then we discuss what they like about everything that they marked, after a quick thumbnail sketch is made. The rest of the process happens directly on skin. FLOW and COMPOSITION will be heavily considered.

There will be video close-ups projected simultaneously and I'll be discussing and taking questions about the process the whole time. Plus each participant will receive a packet with notes and images, as well as a hardcover blank sketchbook with a laser etched Xenoglyph design.
 
I will be finishing the tattoo in the Workhorse booth later in the day for you to stop by and watch as much or as little as you would like.

 

Saturday August 16th
12pm - 2pm /  HC Seminar Room

Dynamic Light and Shadow"




 

Light and Shadow: Fundamentals of a Value Based approach to tattoos and art.
 
In this seminar we will learn the importance of Value as it pertains to tattooing and  fine arts.   Students will learn not only how to identify and maintain value strictures in their pieces,  but the reasons why this foundational principle can be applied to all styles of tattooing and in most cases, art.  We will discuss ways to practice value based approaches off the skin so the artist will be stronger when working on the skin.  Students will learn what makes for a truly dynamic composition and ways they can insure the most bang for their buck in their art. 100$ (presale or at the door) 150$ bundled with my book, Light and shadow.

Fundamentals of Realistic Painting and Tattooing
 
In this seminar we will discuss the fundamental, basic precepts to realistic/representational realistic tattoos and art.  We will cover a wide array of tools the artist can employ to make their pieces stronger and more believable.  Much like any other style of art, realism follows a few foundational  rules that when used intelligently and with awareness,  can make for grerater believable volume in any piece, and hopefully capture that elusive, truly realistic quality. 100$ (presale or at the door) 150$ bundled with my book, Light and shadow.

THE SCRATCHES - LIVE
Friday @ 7pm


The Scratches are a fast paced punk band of four best friends. They don’t have one freakin' singer, they have three. Armed with guitars, they alternate lead vocal roles, harmonizing and singing duets, and even tackling the occasional three part harmony (which they affectionately call "barbershop punk"). That's right, they have two male, and one female, lead singers. You haven’t seen this before in a punk band, but wow is it effective. It’s fun, it’s catchy and it’s the real deal. Sometimes you’ll swear you’re watching Rancid, considering the lead guitarist is a monster…on bass. He rips through the mix with crazy bass lines and rich, raspy vocals with charming attitude. Then you listen again and hear more guitar and vocal influences like Green Day and Blink-182, a smoother, more poli

New Seminars announced at Hell City Killumbus!

By burnie on January 16, 2012 12:50 PM

 

Chet Zar - Live Painting Seminar

In this seminar Chet Zar will cover the techniques and materials I use to create my oil paintings. I will go over creating the initial sketch, painting a small study and creating the final painting. 
Some of the subjects I will be covering are reference, tools and materials, under painting, value, color, composition, texture, glazing…and a whole lot more. I will start with a rough sketch and discuss subject, value and composition decisions. Next will be a small study, which will focus on color, value and troubleshooting the final piece.

Finally, I will create the final painting. This will be the longest part of the seminar and cover the subjects stated above. I will also be covering my experiences as an artist and thoughts on art throughout the demo.
There will be limited space for artists with some painting experience to set up and paint during the demo but simple observation and note taking is also encouraged. I will leave that up to you. I will be happy to go around to those who decide to paint or sketch and offer suggestions and/or criticism at the end of the day. Also, if time allows we can do a final question and answer session.

Check out the rest of this years amazing seminars going on at Hell City!
