Autumn Stag Tattoo by pallanoph Autumn Stag Tattoo by pallanoph
First and foremost, before anyone asks: Please, please please: do not use this for your own tattoo. This was a commissioned piece, and I'm fairly certain she would like to keep the art personal. Thank you for understanding.

Secondly, no, it's not intended to be a pokemon. ._. It's nothing more than an unfortunate coincidence I discovered after the fact. To be honest, I don't find shouting pokemon names at me to be cute, and I would really rather you keep said comments to yourself. (Is that really so much to ask?) If you do insist on emptying your lungs on the name of some poke-beast, please unwatch me and pay visit to the multitudes of artists who specialize in said critters. Please.

Now that that's out of the way, an autumn-themed stag tattoo for ~ash-wolf I'd already posted the inked lines, so here is the final! I have nearly forgotten how to paint (at least with watercolor) so forgive my issues with color, and I can only hope my eyes are correct in that it is not so bad. D: Autumn is my favorite color palette, too!

Watercolor and acrylic ink on 140 lb cold press watercolor paper, 9x12" (22.86 x 30.48 cm)

Commissions are still backed the eff up, so they may as well be closed because no one in their right mind would wait so long. Just FYI.

That's a beautiful stag with a forest on his head ! Too bad they're not real !

If critters like this existed, though, hunting them would cover so many things needed. They're edible, and you can use their antlers for... chairlegs, maybe? Or firewood, if nothing else. :giggle:

Then I imagined this was not an ordinarily sized whitetail, and pictured that the tree antlers were actually full sized trees. Yikes! :lol:

To the DA Community: I'm a big fan of  Pokemon, but seriously people, comment on the art rather than the design? the antlers are the only similar thing. 
Respect the artists wishes and please don't argue with what he/she was commisioned to do. 
Shut up and appreciate the amazing artwork.
