Been following Russ Work for years now and have even been fortunate enough to wear a couple of his tattoos. Super glad he put all the filigree in one spot, so now I don’t have to take off my shoes and look at my feet(location of tattoos Russ did for me) any time I need a good illustrative filigree reference. All the stuff I bought from tattoo smart has been super helpful keep them comming!
Perfecto para tomar referencias ornamentales, tanto para realismo como newschool!
An awesome reference for filigree just as I expected it would be.
The shop I apprenticed at had an original copy of Ornamental Archive that I enjoyed studying. Three years later I found myself struggling on a sleeve design with several incohesive elements, needing to add cohesion and flow. After considering several options, Russ Abbott's book popped into my head, and I immediately knew that was the way I was going to achieve the results I desired. I bought the e-book, printed out a few key pages for reference, and it all fell in place, giving me the unified, flowing result I was looking for. Thanks Russ, it would have taken hours of searching, and I still would not have found the sort of quality ornamental drawings in this book.
A great reference book, tons of awesome illustrations!
