ladybird, from where have you flown

Post by matthew » Sun Mar 07, 2004 12:00 am

a tattoo for my girlfriend....she said "i want some bad ass hummingbirds", so thats what she got. i call them the sugarwater gang. all the lines and curves are dne by hand...i finally got use out of my drafting tools (which i am slowely learning to love). iam really happy with this other than the front bird....i re-did him far too many times, and came up with some floppy raw-meat shaped inta hummingbird thing...yeah. i keep trying to fix it, but she wont let me take it back to work on it.

Excellent rendering! I love what you've done with the paths/dotted lines. It really makes the image. I've never seen hummingbirds fly in a flock...maybe that's what makes them "badass."

Awesome! How big is that tatoo going to be? It would have to be pretty big to be able see all the little details...
