first off inspiring work. i love vivid colors of the design.the wolf look incredible i like how you fit it into a japanese style it looks very hard to do. I also love the skull. i like the fact you put in different tint of color to bring it out. And the snake is very Captivating. The scales have an Rhythmic feel to them.The feeling of life in the picture is awe-striking. It looks like the wolf and snake are in mid-combat. The shading is elegant it look like use a tattoo gun for them.And lines are so clean and crisp. beautiful work i'm looking forward to seeing more.

This is one of the most original pieces of artwork that I've seen, today. For that, I applaud you...... Many people get generic tattoos of a skull, a snake, or a wolf....but, you have taken 3 generic things and put them together to make one big original piece. Awesome job!.......Also, the facial structures of all 3 creatures look very surreal and appealing, and the lines flow very nicely. Many people who are mediocre or bad artists choose to use very straight and sterile lines ( "un-creative" lines). However, the lines you used are curvy and shapely, just like a true artist's lines. The over-lapping is perfect, and the shading flows very nicely into that, too.....My favorite part of this piece would have to be the snake because I think it's facial expression matches the characteristics of a true reptile. The colors chosen for the snake are also perfect. My favorite thing about the wolf is the fur around it's eyes and the "anger wrinkles" on it's face. I also think it's intimidating.....And the skull....well, it has better shapes and features than the average drawn skull, which makes it cool.

Good job. ( this is the first deviation that I have given a perfect rating XD )

I really like this design. I'm wanting to get a full sleeve and have a wolf in there with like the moon at the top of my shoulder. Is there any way you could draw out a design where it includes a moon, a wolf, flowers like the one from your "princess of the wolves" design, even a badass snake like this one too would be cool.
