A returning client asked me to create an image for her tattoo. She is great- she knew just what she was looking for and was able to communicate it and had examples of similar images. She wanted a tribal-esque land turtle, and wanted to see a variety of color combinations to help her decide.
I started with a basic pencil sketch:
and then traced my own drawing, creating a more graphic interpretation:
Lastly I imported it into Illustrator and traced it out, making edits along the way to make it cleaner. Once it was a vector image it was pretty easy to mock up a few different color combinations.
She loved it and will get it done in a few weeks! So looking forward to seeing it!
