According to Bang Bang, "The color portrait of the woman's face took seven hours. The tiger took three."
"There's dozens of colors that all need to blend seamlessly and to apply color to skin requires much more trauma to skin than black and grey," says Bang Bang. "To pull off that style, I need to be much more patient, and I don't only pay attention to depth, I'm paying attention to complimentary colors... I'm fighting the amount of trauma the skin can handle before I do damage to it."
