A while back I was asked to design a tattoo for
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.
