INFO

Introducing LaunchPAD digital design training, powered by Tattoo Smart. LaunchPad takes place in Atlanta, GA from Monday, June 25 through Tuesday, June 26, and aspires to bring together as many as one hundred of the world’s leading and learning tattooers to explore and examine the methodology and approach to digital tattoo design.

Day one of LaunchPAD begins with Myke Chambers’s introduction of CLIP Studio Paint, followed by Jeff Ensminger, the founder and owner of Southern Cross Press, explaining the best strategies for tattooers to use when preparing digital designs for analog printing, including color management theory as well as digital design calibration and resolution. Cory Ferguson wraps up the presentations for day one of LaunchPAD by sharing his most coveted design techniques for the large format geometric tattoos he is recognized for specializing in. Cory will also present his favorite “outsider” design applications that enable him to push the limits of what can be achieved with an iPad Pro.

Day two of LaunchPAD is a full day of advanced digital design training, starting with TOFI demonstrating his workflow and tools, from concept to completion. The two-day event culminates with Russ Abbott focusing on CLIP Studio Paint, deep diving into how the program can make workflow more efficient, more custom, and more precise.

SPEAKERS

Myke Chambers
CLIP/ALPHA (Systems Check)
Deep exploration into accelerated design principles

CLIP/ALPHA introduces the weapon of choice of many of today’s leading digital tattoo designers. Traditional tattoo powerhouse Myke Chambers will guide you through part one of the workshop series in CLIP Studio. Follow along as Myke demonstrates the most useful tools, techniques, and brushes for efficiently creating precise tattoo designs. This workshop empowers you with the techniques and knowledge needed to put this career changing software to use immediately.


Jeff Ensminger
Southern Cross Press
Gamut calibration and analog art reproduction
Jeff Ensminger is the founder and owner of Southern Cross Press, based out of Austin Texas. Join Jeff as he explains color management theory, digital calibration and resolution, and how tattooers can prepare digital designs for the best results in analog printing. Informed by his 16-year career creating groundbreaking large-scale tattoo designs, Jeff consistently and accurately translates digital art to physical form across a variety of media.

Cory Ferguson
Hyperdrive
Applications for accelerated geometric construction and composition

There is no perfect design application for every artist. There are many lesser-known iPad Pro design apps that have powerful features. Always innovating, Cory Ferguson has made a career out of exploiting the opportunities outside of the mainstream and in this invaluable discussion, he explains his favorite outsider apps and shows us his most coveted techniques for a customized geometric design.


Tomasz “TOFI” Torfinski
Accessing the 3rd Dimension
A revolutionary process beyond the flat screen

Tomasz “TOFI” Torfinski creates realistic and surrealistic tattoo designs using the most advanced 3D software available. TOFI demonstrates his workflow and tools, from concept drawing to complete 3D modeling, design lighting/texture application, and post-production. For more than ten years, TOFI has made tattoos with his original 3D designs, redefining the limits of what is possible in both 3D art and tattooing.


Russ Abbott
CLIP/OMEGA
Advanced mission planning including precision maneuvers for custom trajectories

Led by Russ Abbott, part two of the workshop series focuses on the celebrated design app CLIP Studio. In this in-depth two and a half hour workshop, Russ will walk you through a complex tattoo design that pushes the limits of this dynamic software. Russ will reveal hidden features that make repetitive and time consuming tasks happen at light speed. Gain insight from Russ’s workflows that allow for effortless color and composition revisions. CLIP Studio is the most robust design suite available for both iPad and computer-based users, and this workshop series will leave you with a complete understanding of its capabilities and the tools necessary to realize that potential.

We’ve got several new brush sets for Procreate and Clip Studio Paint on the way for you, including one by @battledamagedave that he used to create this design!

Trying my new brush set out on this rendering of your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler. These brushes are designed for Procreate (for now). They are intended for projects at a high resolution (300dpi) for printing. They’re also designed to make things look more hand rendered, like small paper bleeds and grains, that you would find working on finer papers. I’ve made every grain myself, sourced from photos and scans that I did myself. Even the shapes on the nibs were made and experimented on by me. Nothing in this set comes stock on procreate. Adaptations for clip studio and photoshop will be inevitable, but not immediately. And these will be available through @tattoosmart - I’d like to thank @russabbott who’s been a great mentor to me and countless others over the years, for allowing me this opportunity to bring everyone the brushes I use on all of my digital pieces.

@mvtattoo’s vampire lady head is a great of example of successful design using a very limited color palette. The placement of red throughout the design is a striking accent with its respective subject matter. Swipe to see how the design translated to tattoo. Awesome work! ... See MoreSee Less
