Mike Devries DVD Release

mike devries get real animal style tattoo dvd

October 18, 2010 Greetings from Tattoo Education! Since we opened our doors last year, one of the significant instructors we've worked with is California color realist Mike DeVries, whose lush colorful technique has helped set the standard in what is possible with color realism. Although he is well known for his celebrity portraits, one of his great strengths lies in his animal portraits and wildlife realism. His new 2-disk DVD package, Get Real With Mike DeVries: Animal Style, focuses on this subject, and really outdoes his previous instructional packages: higher image quality, more camera angles, better music and essentially real-time editing. It covers topics such as Photoshop reference preparation, placement, stenciling, set-up, machines, needles, palette and ink choices, color mixing and other up-to-date tattooing techniques for producing this signature look.

For this DVD, he chose a full-color gorilla portrait and does the project start-to-finish, explaining new ideas and tricks throughout the process. Animals, portraits and realism go hand-in-hand, and you can apply many of the ideas discussed in this DVD toward things you already know but want to evolve into fresher techniques. This package is for the professional tattooist, or for apprentices learning in a supervised shop environment. It is meant to boost your already-existing skills and provide some new components to consider the next time you approach a realistic tattoo. Total running time for disk 1: 3 hours 38 minutes, disk 2: 3 hours 13 minutes. These two disks are chock-full of cutting edge tattoo technique; regardless of the style you work in, there's something for you.

If you are a fan of color realism, we also carry Mike's other Get Real DVD, which focuses on a more traditional color portrait, Tattooing Portraits with Nikko Hurtado, demonstrating this rising star's velvet-smooth realism methods, and Keith Ciaramello's Keep It Real, a fat 3-disk package focusing on all angles of color realism.
