This is absolutely amazing. Stumbled across it and fell in love as soon as I saw it. I'm a big bird fan, but haven't quite mastered drawing them yet. This is definitely inspiring me to grab some paper and get to it! Thanks for that!

Ohh my gosh your linework is the most beautiful. If the commissioner sends you a photo of the finished tattoo I'd love to see it! I can't even believe how beautiful this is. Gonna commission you another one for SURE, some flowers & leaves & shit I have in mind cause with my other tattoo so beautiful I can't have sub-par leaves on my arm. unacceptable. people will be like "why isn't this as good as the one on your back" & i would just be embarrassed.

to each their own! you make so many beautiful flowers and leaves that you don't even need em on your arms. BUUUT the vicarious living works for me! <3 i'll be working full time this fall so I'll have more money to get said tattoo, and I'll hit you up for a commission then c: hopefully.

:O why is one of the fruit's leaves green and the others white?
Reply

teaganwhite Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
because they are two different types of plant, and because artists can draw things however they want.

I didn't mean that -.-' I mean there is only ONE leaf of the ONE kind of plant, that has a different colour. Seems like an error to me.
