Your works are brilliant, but I am stumped as to how you make it look sort of realistic while being in an old school style. How do you know where the put the waves to make it look like how water works? Is there a trick or you just draw and it looks good?

Wow so amazing don't know why but it make sink of a angel
Katsushika Hokusai. Very nice interpretation.

I have been lookin' out for different designs like this one. I am working on a tattoo merging a traditional cross with Japanese waves.
This is a really nice design. Good composition.

What medium did you use?

Thank you..I'm happy to hear you like my design.
I always use Pilot drawing pens for outlines and Caran D'Ache watercolor or Supracolor pencils when I draw tattoo art...Or I'll occasionally use standard graphite pencils for black and gray.
