Kalabara Phoenix Tattoo by smij Kalabara Phoenix Tattoo by smij
A while back I was asked to design a tattoo for :iconkalabara: I have no idea if I did it right. I just went on what I knew, a few references, and what I thought looked good. I think I got every aspect of what she asked for, and I tried to incorporate her old tattoo (The hanzi for "destiny")

What I posted here is the suggested shading of the piece over a skintone base, and the outline I followed. With my busted tablet I had to break out the old mouse and do this, so the shaded version took forever. The hard copy of this was destroyed, I'm so glad I scanned it in time.

Please please do not steal this. It's meant for Kalabara and I designed it with her in mind. If you want something similar please ask and I'll see what I can do.

Sure I could design you one. I can't guarantee it'd be done in the next week or two because of all my class stuff, but it'd definately be done by the end of Feb if you don't mind waiting. I'm actually in the middle of adding to that tattoo for Kalabara as I type.

If you could just note me with ideas, sizes, writing you want, colours you can get that'd be great.

I look forward to hearing from you.
