Tattoo commission for ~TragicCharade
, who asked for a kirin.
I'm rather surprised that a fair amount of people have asked for me to design tattoos for them, honestly: I've not quite figured out how my art can be considered applicable, and I will say it's a little tricky to come up with a piece that will work as a tattoo. (Texture, line weight, even color are important!) But I have to say the design process for this went quite well. And it was fun!
Watercolor and ink on 140 lb Arches hot press watercolor paper. Mmmmm. (The clouds are more of a rosy grey than pink in the original, but ah well...
Questions, critiques, etc. are welcome as always.
Oh, and a disclaimer: I would rather you not use this design for your own tattoo, as it was made specifically for the commissioner. Also, there are plenty of very capable tattoo artists out there that would be more than happy to design you your very own original tattoo. Thanks for understanding!
