Tattoo commission for who fed me with some endless inspiring keywords and then let me live it up. So here you see the result. I am very proud of this story-telling design and can't thank you enough, Elma! Thanks for asking me do this high end commission and leaving me so much freedom though! I am sure it will look great at you!
It's done with pencil at the original measures size. Well - around 60 centimetres height. Design reaches from the wrist to shoulder. Shades are done digital.

But there are good news for all who asked repeatedly for reference books:
Maybe the best resource book I discovered by now (aside from "Handbook of ornament" by Franz Sales Meyer) is "Fabeltiere und Dämonen in der Kunst" by Heinz Mode. (It's translated into English: "Fabulous Beasts and Demons") I recommend to grab one of these. This book is a pure treasure chest.
I used a stylograph/school pen, black ink, format A5.
