So I’m drawing this tattoo idea for my friend. Working with the actual client is rewarding but also you have to flexible with your own views. After all the art is not for you!
So here is what I have done so far. Aleksandra Zerkova
A quick sketch with pencil. Showing the rough idea of what I had in mind.

Got some pointers from client and inked the pencil sketch. Aleksandra Zerkova
Client loves the face and was thinking of having just the upper body in the tattoo.

Client showed a picture of those old Roman bust sculptures to visualize his vision. So a lot less to draw digitally after all!
Next step is to “ink” digitally and get all the lines perfect and the portions right!
