Artist: Eke

Riccardo Sacco aka Eke is a tattoo artist based in Italy specialized in neotraditional cartoon artworks, the modern version of old skool tattoo style.

Eikon: Phoenix


Dominant: Joshua Rosfield

The second son of the Archduke of Rosaria and Clive's younger brother by five years. Joshua awoke as the Dominant of the Phoenix soon after his birth. Despite his noble upbringing, Joshua treats all his father's subjects with warmth and affection—none more so than Clive, whom he deeply admires. Joshua often laments that it was he, the frail and bookish younger son, who was granted command of the firebird's flames, and not his stronger, braver brother. While Clive will gladly throw himself into any danger, Joshua quails at the sight of a carrot on his dinner plate. But carrots become the least of his concern when he, too, is swept up into the tragic events that change Clive's life forever.

Interviewing The Artist:

How did you decide to represent the Eikon assigned to you?

Starting from the image of the character and seeing all the various elements that represent him, also trying to structure it to the best to make it feasible and wearable.

What elements did you choose to best represent it and why?

Being an Phoenix an Eikon with the fire element I used colours like orange, red and yellow to represent
its heat.

What materials did you use for your custom?

Acrylic paint and acrylic markers. I drew the track with a white crayon and then I painted it over.

Divide the creative process into steps

I drew the track with the white crayon, then I made a first layer of white paint as a primer.

Then I coloured and redefined it with acrylic markers. I recommend putting the primer first if the bottom is dark.
