Eye in the Sky by pbird12 Eye in the Sky by pbird12
Whats this then? My first tattoo design :D

My cousin has asked that I design some tattoos for him so this is the first of three.

Remit:
A realistic eye with a rainbow iris
A red and blue galaxy (hence the 'Eye in the Sky') I might have taken a few liberties with the galaxy stylising, but we'll see

Materials this time:
2/3 of an A4 sheet of bristol
Graphite (mainly 8B mars lumo)
FC Polychromos CP's
Eraser/BluTack
Time: About 6-7 hours
No refs to credit.
Note 1: The pink in the swirl areas are actually red, my scanner is doing it's thing again :bucktooth:
Note 2: Coloured pencil on bristol board is a bad idea :shakefist:

Thank you for having a look
Paula :heart:

EDIT: It's been done, Eye in the Sky in the flesh :happybounce:

That would be great, send them my way :)  I can give you my facebook page if that makes it easy for them to contact me www.facebook.com/BrighteyesCre…

Sure, I can do a guardian angel ... I'll give anything a go.  If she sends me an idea of what she's looking for that would be brill.
Speak soon :)

Hiya :)  I'll hopefully be getting your hourglass done in the next few weeks ... just got a couple of things to finish and then I'll get designing for you.  I'll send you a wee message, but I won't let anyone else get the designs I do for you, don't worry.  They're just for you.

Was a pleasure to work with your artwork as a reference Paula, and I'm glad your cousin is pleased with the result. 4 hours and he sat like a trooper :) Cheers, Leon

He's had quite a few tattoos so no big deal for him this time.
