This is a tattoo inspired by Charles Darwin (really nerdy, I know), but it's also pretty simple. All I want basically is a simple picture (sketch-like if possible) of a Warbler Finch facing to the right, with a two part banner, one part on the top which goes to wrap around behind the bird of and then goes across the bottom, sort of in a "Z" shape, I though it would be neat if it looked like the finch was perched on the bottom part of the banner. On the right and left sides of the bird are two orchid flowers. The top portion of the banner should say "There is much grandeur" and the bottom part of the banner would say "in this view of life". By the way, the whole thing should be black and white. Thanks!

Concept Sketches

Really great request. Thank you for all the detail in your description. This is quite a lot of work, which I would really like to do for you. In order for me to give you a worthy concept sketch, can you add a bit more to your funds? Maybe an extra $15, that would really get myself and I'm sure other artists busy sketching for this!

Hey Kt,
I did a sketch of your idea. I can clean the text up if you'd like, but I tried to keep the finch and orchids sketchy as per your request. Let me know what you think, thanks!

Here is my concept, I hope you like it :)

I have gone for a sketchy feel to it, if you do want it more polished, thats not a problem either :) s far as font goes, I have gone for a handwritten feel to tie in with the feel of the design, again if you wanted that changed that wont be a problem...

Look forward to your feedback :)
