Dragon and the bees

This is one of my old works, did it in about 2001 or 2002. The client now wishes to get rid of the green and to add the dragon, in blueish tones. I will also rework the bees and surroundings & will add some colour to them as well. As it was with the roses few posts ago – I haven’t done dragons few years as well and I totally love doing them again.

Here you go, this is how far we got this time:

Meanwhile, freehand sketch:

And this is how it looked before:

The same guy has on the other arm one other old work of mine as well, this is from the 2003 I reckon:

Mermaid cover-up back finished

Yes, finally. Took a bit under a year, although it would of been finished earlier if we’d work on it more regularily.
Since it’s a cover-up, then here’s a pic of what it looked like BEFORE:

And this is the AFTER pic (some parts are freshly done):

Also, a lot of thanks and congratulations to the Radio Mania’s team – on their birthday concert at Rock Cafe (Tallinn, EST), they awarded my doom-sludge band Talbot with the “Surprise of the Year 2011” award. Lovely.

War of the roses

Customer wanted to have two roses and that’s exactly what she got. Made with the extra flavour of watercolours. Needs one more sessions for some more layering and detailing before it’s done.

It’s been actually quite a long time since the last time I made some roses and it felt good to meet ’em again.

And  nice track from Ulver’s latest album “Wars of the roses”:

Lime blossom

Customer wanted to have a lime blossom as an memory of her granddad. Lime blossom cause grandpa liked to drink a lot of tea made of lime blossoms.
And she also wanted to add the granpa’s name to the tattoo.
She gave me the example of grandpa’s handwriting and I drew the design with it & today the needle got in.
Located on the side.

 

Also, Talbot has a show in Riga this Saturday, 3.03. At club Melna Piektdiena (Black Friday?). With Frailty (LV) & Life’s Edge (LV). Doomy event!
