Taurus for Damian by zachlost Taurus for Damian by zachlost
My friend Damian has gone, unfortunately, tattoo mad, and is in the process of obtaining 8 tatts. He's been bugging me to design one based on his star sign, Taurus.

I keep going "Celtic" - he keeps going " nice, but not what I want". Here's one for general consumption, if ya like it.

The work was done using a Tablet, str8 into Photoshop, on a sleepless night.

Hey there. I love this piece. I actually have had it on my back since i was 18 (10 years now) and I love it. It was my first. I would actually be interested in giving you a commission dor a new design!. My son was just born. And I'd like to get a similar style design but for an Aries. I wanna put it below my Taurus piece

This looks awesome! I'm thinking of getting a tattoo sometime soon and I'm a Taurus like your friend Damian :) I'm browsing through the web for some inspiration to my own design and this one really tickles my fancy ;)

that is one cool damn tattoo! I can't think why he wouldn't want it! Did you sell the design yet? I'm sure some place would love it. :)
zachlost Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2004
to tell you the truth ... i've never thought of selling it to a place.

art such as this (i think people call it Gift Art) is how i look at my work in general. i have issues with putting a price tag on it.

I see how you would have reservations....I have a lot too when it comes my stuff as well. I often give embossings as presents at Christmas to a couple people. Someone suggested that I try to sell my stuff as well....printings I think I could do....but illustrations are harder to part with. ;)

But I just thought I'd suggest it....*shrug*....gotta pay the bills sometimes....too bad there isn't a worldwide fund for artists. ;)

Very nice, I especialy love the detail of the horns. You should do more of these :)
zachlost Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2004
i only seem to be doing tattoos for very demanding boys ;)

That's really good. Yeah, it might be a *little* too detailed as a tatoo, but it would look good on a t-shirt! (I said that on your eagle one too. ^^; )

nice ! looks like a gremlins to me :D
zachlost Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2004
funny :)

i haven't had that comment before ... at least it doesn't look like a Mogwai
valentinecrow Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2004
well i love it! i think its maybe too detailed for a tattoo, especially if it would be smallish. tattoos are difficult and sometimes need to be simple. but the detail is what makes the design interesting, since you dont see celtic taurus! i personally am a leo, *and am dying to know how you would draw leo like this taurus* but i like how you added the symbol on the forehead!
zachlost Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2004
i'm a Leo too *meow*

the idea was actually derived from the Taurean symbol on the first place. I do agree with you though, it is a *little* over ellaborate though - especially for the poor tattoo artist who has to do it in the end. but i visualise that on being pretty big either on his back or on his lower spine.

if i did a Leo version of a tattoo, it probably wouldn't be in the same style, as it's a weeee bit too challenging to derive a good design from the actual symbol. it would probably look like your standard lion in motion (vertical) or just a detailed image of the head + mane ...
