Done in some fit of um... I don't know, really. Hope you like it! Took about 15 minutes for the rough sketch, another 15 for the clean outlines, and about 45 minutes for the lead wasting. 1 hour and 15 minutes, not bad.
Hello! This is beautiful. I'm seriously considering getting a tattoo in May for my birthday (I'm giving myself lots of time to be sure - it'll be my first tattoo). I'd love to get the crane on the right done. I see you've given permission to others - is it alright with you if I use your design? If I get it done I'll be sure to send you a picture. Thank you so much!
Hey Ananova. I'm keen to add something to this on my leg and eventually end up with a whole leg piece. I was thinking a sunset/rise in the background but something epic that just keep growing and growing. Any ideas?
Sounds good, you could look at traditional Japanese landscape art (Google it) - might suit the cranes very well and it is something that could just grow and grow with the tattoo. Say, like you have the cranes in the foreground, then you add some immediate background, like trees, and river, and then extend that to mountains in the distance, clouds, the sun, etc. I think it could work
