I just love your shading and blending! Very smooth transitions and great use of the blues. The line work looks as smooth as ever as well. I hope you don't mind my curiosity, but are all the colors you used in this piece?

Because it's a tattoo, I feel it's not right to mention any type of change I may do, so I'll only mention what I feel may be added: The only thing I see that could be added, is a bit more dark shading on the other side of the scroll. Not sure if it's just the picture, or coloring, but it just seems that side of the scroll with the dark shading on top, is a bit unbalanced from the other side of the scroll (that's closer to the viewer).

Once again, beautiful work! I truly hope I'll be able to do the honors of carrying one of your original works one day.

GREAT coverup! I can't see the original at all, but then again, the ink didn't hold up well so lucky them. The blues really bring out the warm colors in the tiger. I love the movement in the brow region. Maybe darken the teeth a little more, for contrast from the white of the muzzle.

I'm loving this piece, but I have to ask was making the blues flat intentionally? I only ask because everything else seems to pop so much and just sort of sticks out being all 3 dimensional, and then the blues are just well... There.

Probably one of the coolest tiger heads I. Have seen. Love the obvious oriental influence yet mixed with modern to make it rock. The only questions would be the flatness of the blue in smoke or water versus the beautiful shade and blending of the colors elsewhere. From a purely graphic stand point do the whiskers being so spiky work? That being said I wish I could dedicate myself full time to art so I could actually challenge you in some degree. I will borrow a couple of your pieces when I get time to try and adapt a little of you style into mine. By that I mean draw something incorporating your techniques. Tattoo wise people here give no license or freedom... so I suffer.

I understand completely. I was taught a critique should bring up positive and potential negative as well. Not to be negative but to inspire or point out if they didn't see. A lot of times potential negative are merely a style a person likes or desires and was a conscious choice. I guess I am saying I am not trying to be an ass. I didn't check the critique box cause didn't want all the positive without the.... why's or did you think of or would it be better if... I want to be challenged.

I think, that each tattoo and design can be much better, because ideal does not exist. And I can good understand, that one design can't looks awesome for all people. Thats cool, when people don't afraid to say to artist what they realy think about work.

I see hundreds of flaws in everything I do. I used to burn 90% of everything I did now I keep it to show myself how bad I suck. I see work from people like you with talent and makes me work harder. Thank you.
