Progression of a design

Here is a progression of a design from concept to completion.

James had emailled me regarding some fix up work that he wanted to have done. Since the amount of work needed was going to be less than my minimum sit fee, I asked him if he had any other tattoos that he was thinking of getting in the near future. Suggesting that it would be potentially  more cost effective to have them both done at the same time. We arranged a consultation time that worked for both of us.

On the day of the consult James brought in this image as a starting point:

We talked about what had drawn him to this image and what it represented to him and came up with this rough concept sketch of what I would like to do with it:

For his appointment I drew up a more finalized version of image and the line drawings. This is what I showed James when he arrived for his appointment:

Both happy with the concept drawings we went ahead with the tattoo:

Everything came out great (except for the photographs… not doing well with the new camera) and I am hoping to follow this up with healed photos at some time in the future.
