Description

Looking for a tribute piece to my recently deceased father. A Celtic warrior in my image standing in his kilt with a broad sword raises. Imagine to include the Isle of Man Manx cymbol of the three legs, the British lion, the Scottish thise, and Irish book of kells knot work. Im am looking for realism and not to be cartoinish but to convery my families warrior heritage. im was us army infantry, my dad RAF, my grand dad bristish navy and a great uncle a commando my grandfather a member of the IRA in 1920's Irreland that secured independence for the South. have several photos and images selected. Looking for it to be a hip upper thigh piece not visable in shorts. Thank you

I can do this for you. Please note that you are here paying only for the design, not tattoo work. Click on my name and check out my portfolio. Once you add a small deposit via Paypal(usually 25%) from your total budget, we artists start sketching. Then we upload sketches here for you to see. You give us feedback. Then you choose your artist (based on sketches)and add rest of the funds so he/she finishes this design for you. Let me know. Thanks. Z

Thank you I appreciate your kind words.

Ok buddy heres my quick line sketch.

Addiewell1's picture

I was looking for the symbols to be more subtle and incorporated into the body of warrior. Also some Celtic knot work in there as well. It very hard to see the sketch as an FYI as the tattoo copyright is very bold over it.

Zeljko Z Srdic's picture

Ohh I see. Well no problem, I will incorporate those symbols on his body. Will make those changes and will upload here for you to see. Thanks. Z

Addiewell1's picture

Thx

BADesigns's picture

this is rough am I understanding you want warrior in your image "likeness" is one of the photos you? I thought nice knot work arched slightly above would curve nicely on the hip

Image type: 
Concept sketch

Ok buddy here I incorporated those symbols on his body. Manx symbol on his wrist, British lion on his chest, Scottish thistle on his belt.
I also started knot work like he is standing on it...tell me what you think. Z

Can you make it more etherial like the picture I submitted, as I am not to keen on the base. I do not see the incorporation of the thistle and the manx three legs? i like the British lion on the chest. The celtic knot work can be on his belt perhaps, or the end of the sword can be a celtic dragon head? thx

Zeljko Z Srdic's picture

Yeah sure, it will be more etherial once start coloring. This is just basic line sketch :)
Ok will make those changes but I need to be sure that you will choose me as your artist to finish this for you. Let me know. Thanks. Z
