Bouquet Valdis by Ahkward Bouquet Valdis by Ahkward
Tattoo commission for VolVokun! She wanted the skull of her character Valdis, some feathers, roses and of course some blood. hehe

Having a bunch of flowers and feathers made me think of of bouquet, so thus the title. Lame title is lame. XD I didn't have an exact ref for the character's skull, so I built it from some references Vol sent me. I did various sketches until we settled on a design we liked. I'm glad I worked on this, it was really fun! :D I also learned a lot about roses.

Unless you are Volvkun, you are not allowed to use this for YOUR tattoo. You must get permission from her first, if she is willing to allow it! Please be respectful of her!

Looks great Ahk, the skull is briliant and the fethers and roses look very nice. Composed really nicely, awesome tattoo design.

Thank you so much again for this, Ahk! I know I kinda sent you in blind with having no ref of her skull at all, but you nailed it ;; I'm sorry if I was a bit of a fanny with the small changes haha!
The placement of everything is perfect, I just love this design so much ;o;

You are super welcome! You were pretty thorough in all the refs you gave me though. It helped a lot and I learned a ton about face re/construction. XD You weren't a fanny at all! You paid for this and I want it to look good. Plus, in the event it ever becomes a tattoo, I want it to be something you love and want.

I'm glad the refs I gave were sufficient! I thought that if I was going to ask for something that technically had no ref, I could at least try and be helpful about it xD

If I ever do decide to get it as a tattoo you'll be the first to know though! I love the design and I just want to show it off to everyone ;o;
