    I'm proably going to head over to deviant art and comission someone there to draw it up properly for me.

    Anyways, thinking of a Demon and Angel drawn up to look like their arguing with each other, and in the middle a "soul". Proably to go in the middle of my back below neck area.

    Problem is I wan't it to be pretty detailed, but don't want it to be big either.

    What does OT think? :dunno:

    Possible Idea, but just got to find a decent place here that can actually draw something that isn't already on the wall labeled A, B, and C:hs:

    I had mine done with Litos at Forbidden Images in Newport Richey, FL. He specializes in custom designs.


    I came in to his shop with 3 or 4 skeletal and zombified dragon images I ripped from the web and asked for him to create a mixture between the two, and also a live version of the finalized undead dragon.

    within a week he had 3 concept sketches, for the undead dragon, and after I took them home to look over them, I chose the one which is one my back to bring back for a finalized drawing.

    pretty fucking badassed considering he only wanted a deposit after I came in for a finalized sketch.


    I still need to go back and get the live version done on my other shoulder though :hs:

    here's a rather poor image of the final product. It looks like a graphite pencil sketch in real life :bigthumb: it took Litos about 3 hours total because of all the fine lines and shading he had to do.

    Very impressive, and cool you have someone in your area that would take the time to do it.

    have you looked at any ink/tattoo magazines? I found my artist through one of the featured artists in "needle and Ink." usually artists who make it into a magazine do alot of original and customized work. it might be worth your while to look through 5 or 6 of the magazines and collect some names for some research.

    That will looks damn good. Definately take that to the artist that will be doing it and have him put on some good detail, and maybe a few more colors, and shading.

    Looks like a great start.
     
  12. Wow... that is going to be badass. Good luck with that man.

    Yeah, that pic was just the rough draft. Color coded to point out the diffrent aspects. Guy still has alot of work to do on it, but just wanted to make sure I liked the concept:)

    I will keep this post up to date with more pics as I get them:bigthumb:

    Wow...I LIKE! The concept almost reminded me of the cover artwork for Glenn Danzig's Black Aria, except that is an angel killing a demon. See below.

    Keep us posted on the progress of the work...I can't wait to see how this turns out!

    Wow, that is amazing.
     
  19. Is the artist that drew that left handed? I noticed the way the demon and angel are holding their swords is like a left handed person. Anyways, that looks amazing.
