Hold on to Your Hopes

HEADS UP: This looks far better on the small version - the full view has no more detail and looks pretty poor. Sorry folks!

A tattoo design I was commissioned for by a good friend.
She wanted it as realistic as I could make it, and without all my proper materials, this was the best I could manage.

The dark outline is fountain pen (purple ink; blew my mind!), the rest is pencil (both tonal and color).

I photographed it and used Photoshop to get the colors how I wanted them (though the detail didn't come out great); after that I put in the gradient.

Please do let me know what you think!

I'm really pleased with this piece, though that could be because it took me so long and it's now past 2am!
Haha :)
