Media: Sharpie markers, some Photoshop for touching it up
This is a dragon that I drew up after seeing an illustrated woman with it in a Dragon Art book. I did change up a few things so that the tattoo is not exactly the same (plus I couldn't fit it all on my arm). The artist who inspired me and that I based this artwork off of was Anne Stokes ( www.annestokes.com/news/ ). This was drawn up for me personally as a tattoo to get for myself. Here is a poorly shot photo of my tattoo after the work was done. Sadly, it is the only photo that I have of my dragon tattoo right now sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos…
This dragon was inspired by the dragon found on this girl's arm in Anne Stokes drawing here ► ironshod.deviantart.com/art/Wa…
I loved her dragon so much that I wanted to create a similar design for my tattoo but I didn't want to completely copy Anne's artwork. However, the dragon is still very similar and is still considered Anne's artwork so please do not give credit to me. My initials are in the bottom for the mere fact that I free-handed this myself based off of Anne's photo (it is not intended as a copyright). I changed the wing tips to curve in more to almost create swirls, the edges of the wings extend more because I wanted to try to keep the dragon in sort of a circle, the inner sections of the wings are chopped up more.
I'd found this back in 2014 and I realized I couldn't remember where I found it from. I'm so glad I found this again. It's a gorgeous design. I'd been making a few amateur pendants at the time and wanted to try this... Not too bad. I tried them again recently and they're turning out much better.
I'm wondering if you would give permission for the design to be shared in the pendants if you are credited with the original dragon design. I'd just edited so the design could be laser etched into glass and then hand painted. This one is hanging from my rear view mirror in my car right now. I'd attempted 3 other background colors as well.
Thanks in advance
