Spring Fox Tattoo: Lines by pallanoph Spring Fox Tattoo: Lines by pallanoph
Before anyone asks: This piece is a commission for ash-wolf and is not to be used for your own tattoo/etc. Please and thank you.

This is only the inked line art for the tattoo, done with a dip pen (Hunt 108 nib, "ye olde standby") and sepia ink on Canson Montval watercolor paper. The lines became way more involved than I had ever intended them to be, and since this is a tattoo piece, I hope it can be interpreted alright. I almost never draw flowers, even though I should, so this was a nice exercise. I suppose I never draw foxes either, so... out of my comfort zone? That's a good thing, right? :XD: The watercolor for this piece should be along shortly! (ORANGE! :D )

Art is for ash-wolf's use only, so please please please, do not use this art. Thank you!

This is really beautiful! The flow of the animal combined with the placement of the flowers is just amazing and flows wonderfully! I cant wait to see it colored!

Thank you! I'm glad it works, especially given my lack of previous experience with both foxes and flowers. :D

Lovely piece; I really like all the flowers. :D
The only thing I noticed is that some fingers have the line for the paw pads and some don't (front left and both rear paws). I'm not sure if this was intentional or not.

Thanks! The missing paw pads weren't intentional, I think I just forgot to ink them before I erased the pencils. :XD: These things happen, I suppose. I'm not sure it will be noticeable once I start painting, but we'll see!

I'm sure it won't. I forget to ink stuff all the time, but I'm a little OCD about my lines so I'm always double and triple checking. I'm looking forward to seeing the painted piece!

oh, but foxes are cool! I know the whole internet thinks that too, but that doesn't make it less true...
