Hello, I found your deviation while browsing through critiquables! It's a very eye-catching and stark design.
This was a beautiful work, and I'm glad to have stumbled upon it.

The shape of the dragon is fluid and graceful, with the curving lines adding more to the flow. I love the stance it has too. And there's something about those wings that really strikes me.

Something you might want to consider is the white spacing on the dragon's body. The white lines are a little crowded, and thin compared to the whole. Simpler may be better.

I'd love to see this as a tattoo sometime :D

Taking through a quick peek of your gallery, I see that you have many designs like this. They're wonderful, please keep creating!

Love it! This would make a great tattoo! I think curves inside the dragon really accentuate the curvy pose of the dragon itself. Very nice work!

This is beautiful. My mother and I have been looking at tribal dragon designs for a little while to get some ideas for our tattoo artist. We are planning to have the wings disintegrate into a flock of Ravens as part of our symbolism for the tattoo. 

Would you mind if we brought this design in with us during our consultation. The original piece that inspired us something was off about it and it didn't have the grace and elegance that truly makes it read as a dragon. Everything that was lacking in our sample picture is very much present here.

If you have any problems with that do please let me know. We will continue to look but honestly after about three weeks looking on an off with a deadline about two months away this piece has truly blown us away.

No thank you. It's my mother's first tattoo and dragons are very much her thing. She'll be thrilled to hear.

I'm not particularly well versed in tattoos and tattoo design, but I think your tattoo design is very well done, using movement of lines within the dragon in contrast with a relatively static pose. Compared with your earlier work, the proportions are better, but I think some of the liveliness of earlier versions have gotten lost. The positions of the forelimbs and legs were much more dynamic in the previous version, something that is lost here.

Overall, I think you're doing a fine job with these designs, but be wary of making them too static.
Keep up the good work! :)

This coming from a tattooist, I may have done the white lines just a little thicker. Over time tattoos like this can collapse in as far as the black. so a little extra room is sometimes better.
with that said, I actually like the design. the dragon looks good, I think it had a nice flow. Nice work

The curve of the top of the right wing seems a bit off but the rest is solid!
