Ascendant Phoenix - Tattoo Commission by DragonstormStudios
Ascendant Phoenix - Tattoo Commission
Recently I had the honour of receiving a new type of commission. I was approached by a friend to paint them a Phoenix - and they'll be getting a tattoo of it done!

The Phoenix is a powerfully symbolic creature;I was inspired to do a design that displayed that power within given parameters. Further, there is another reason that makes this stand out: it's a watercolour! The client described an almost tribal-like, watercolour effect that they wanted with this painting, so what better medium to use than that? See, I haven't painted with watercolours properly in a long time, since I was 15 to be exact. But if the medium is necessary for the right effect, then it shall be used.

To add more energy and definition, I used coloured pencils for touchups, and plenty of white gel pen. Whereas my style normally focuses on strong dark lines, this is literally the opposite, so it was unusual yet exciting in how unusual it was.

Wonder if that makes sense!

Anyway, I'm really happy with how this turned out.

Hope you all like it too. c:

Rikki Tikki Tavi! by DragonstormStudios
Rikki Tikki Tavi!

The Story of Rikki Tikki Tavi is this:

A British family moved into an Indian bungalow, the territory of which fell under the purview of the cobras Nag and Nagaina. The young child of the family found a young mongoose into the house to keep as a pet – due to his chattering he was called Rikki Tikki by his owners. While Rikki befriended the resident tailor bird family, Nagaina was expecting children, and felt threatened by the humans. Furthermore angered by their presence, her mate Nag entered the bungalow and hid among the water jars at night, so as to bite and kill the intruders.

Rikki Tikki found him out however, and soon both began a terrible battle. The father of the family woke to the noise and got out his shotgun, killing Nag with one shot. Seeing Rikki as their savior, the family treasured him more.

Nagaina was grief stricken, and sought revenge for the death of her mate. While pursuing her attempt, the mother Tailor Bird took note and distracted her. Meanwhile Rikki hunted down and found her clutch, destroying all but one egg.

The young mongoose used the egg to enrage Nagaina but she recovered her only egg, retreating into her nest. Rikki followed in hot pursuit, and neither emerged for a time, until finally the mongoose came out, declaring the cobra dead."

Sanjha the Black Cat - Commission by DragonstormStudios
Sanjha the Black Cat - Commission

Did you know that Sanjha isn't an ordinary black cat? No way he's a sexy, muscular black cat who is also an alien!

MMMyes.

Anyway, a reference sheet for a user on FB of their character, done traditionally with coloured pencils and acrylics, then arranged in photoshop on a board.

Sanjha belongs to his owner, the art is my own.

I am a traditional artist who is always interested in exploring new media combinations. With every work I do I strive to improve, and as a result my style is constantly evolving. I enjoy illustration, and my genres often dip into worlds of fantasy and science fiction.

I don't just stick to drawing either. I'm also an avid cosplayer! Whether its sewing, propwork, (Oh yes prop work) makeup and/or acting, I love it! Each costume is a challenge because it makes me to try something I've never done before. If you ever see me in costume, feel free to stop on by and say hi! Maybe I'll draw you something if my arms aren't busy holding up wings. ;D
