Owl Tattoo Design by artisticrender Owl Tattoo Design by artisticrender
Well that's it... The final piece for my portfolio. It is now officially brown trousers time as I prepare to get out there and begin looking for a tattoo apprenticeship. :s

I was looking at drawing some eagles, but I thought stuff it I want to draw owls instead. I was going for a sue-do harry potter/lord of the rings/celticy kind of feel.

As I was finishing up the sketch I accidentally got a bunch of ink all over the owls face so I had to transfer it to a new paper. FML:(

Sketched with 2H mechanical pencil, inked with pen/brush and ink and finally coloured up with pro markers.

Enjoy :D

Personally man, i think is pretty darn special, i truly love it, did you come up with the design on your own or was there a little inspiration involved? I wish you TONNES of luck on finding an apprenticeship. I came across this picture as i am studying for when i begin creating my own portfolio, which will probably take a few years as i dont think my skill level is really up there. This is neo traditional am i right? I love the style its brilliant. Mostly i get inspired by types like David Tevenal etc

This piece is pretty damn awesome and i honestly would love to get such a gorgeous owl tattoo'ed on my skin, so im sure plenty of others would be super interested when they come across your works in the future :3

The 'celtic' looking background just totally finishes off this piece. Its spectacular, your eagle is pretty damn impressive as well might i add. Anyway...thought you should know that you've done and AMAZING job, especially since you had to do it twice :(

Keep up the awesome work, i hope to be at your level of skill some day :)

The colours didn't take long as It helps to work fast when dealing with markers. The sketch probably took a little longer to get right. About 4 hours on and off I think.
