These are designs for some tattoos I wanted to do for a friend. I've never really designed a tat before, so getting the appropriate style for body art down is a bit tricky.

Tell me what you think!

Hmm.

I can't enlarge it for some reason to see the fine details, but for a possible tattoo sketch these are fairly good, depending on how large of a tattoo your friend wants. The smaller a tat is, the less detail you can put into it without the lines all blurring together after the years. For sketches, yes, I think these are good. :) Don't worry about getting "THE" style for body art, as all body art has different styles. Find YOUR style and run with it.

The only tips I could offer would be that if your friend wants these LARGE, then you have a loooooot of detail/shading work to do (the male angel's robe looks kind of shiny?). If your friend wants them about 4-5 inches tall, from top to bottom, then I would actually suggest removing a little detail from the flowers. For the female angel, I love the way you did the feathers as a stylized little line all the way down. It's awesome. And it would look great on skin. With a bit of pale blue shading and some white over tones when inked, it'd look badass. :o Keep those wings, man.

Klimatic: Dude, if you want angels in bikinis with a huge rack, that's cool. But there's nothing wrong with his "female anatomy." Just looking at the halo and the robe she's wearing, and you can kinda tell it's done in a classic angelic style, like in paintings centuries ago.

Anywho. I do wish I could get the click-to-zoom thing to work. Either way, you're off to a good start. Keep tweaking em, but the idea is solid. :D

Wow, what a constructive review! Haven't checked back on these in awhile, so when I discovered your post I was pretty excited. Sorry that you weren't able to enlarge the drawings, but most of the detail was done in a rough, sketchy style that was meant to kind of test my ability at making decent-looking tattoos, so you're not missing much.

I appreciate all the helpful points and tips you included in your review, cheers!

It seems nice, but as a permanent tattoo? Nah.

The face of the first tat could be much, much more human than that. The chin is too sharp, the hair is like a forest of damn icicles jutting out from his skull, and the shading looks like a line straight across his face - kind of like if someone took a rectangle and hovered it over his head.

The only big flaws I saw in the second one is the bad female anatomy (you know what that is, right? I hope to Him that you do) and the strange shading on the hair and the inside of the clothes.

Hope you can fix those things.

Thanks for your review. These designs were quickly put together, but I comprehend a lot of the points you made about how they could be improved.

As for your comment on the anatomy of the second tattoo, however, I'm a bit in the dark. Could you be a little more specific on the mistakes?
