Stock!? WTF? If you haven't noticed it, this deviation was not uploaded in "stock" category. Below it "all rights reserved" is written. And by the way, the fact that I haven't put a big, ugly watermark on all my drawings doesn't mean that anyone may use them as they please.

Please remove this deviation, or I will have report it as art thievery.

Hi Avestra, I used your beautiful wolf tattoo for an illustration of mine.
I hope you don't mind?
Greetings,

Well, I do mind. If you would have asked me for permission to use my artwork BEFORE actually doing that, I definitely would not have allowed that. All my images are marked with "all rights reserved", I never allow anyone to use my art in any manner unless I get payment for that. And in my deviantart profile page there is written all this information, so that people wouldn't have to ask me all the time.
So in this case I consider this a simple art thievery.

I won't ask you to remove this drawing of yours from Internet only because I see that you have put some effort in drawing it, but in future I would recommend you to use STOCK images in your artworks. There are lots of tattoo designs available as stock in the Internet.

And I totally dislike this attitude that unless an artwork is marked with a huge and ugly watermark, then anyone is free to do anything they wish with it. I understand it when little kids who are making their blogs and want to decorate them with pretty images and know nothing about copyrights are stealing my art but I wasn't expecting that from an artist (at least your gallery gives me impression it's not the first time you are holding a pencil).

Hi there,

This is a good tribal for your first design!
I'm thinking of getting a wolf in a pose and style quite similar to this, would you mind if I used it, or used it to help my own design? I will credit you and post a pic of the final product on dA :)

May I ask what are your reasons why you want a tattoo?

And are you completely sure you really want that? I mean a tattoo is for life and you must be completely sure that you 1)really want to have a tattoo; 2)the design you have chosen really is the right one and you will still like it also after years.

Personally I don`t want any tattoos for myself, at least definitely not now (I'm 17 now), I simply like this style, so I draw in it. My opinion is that it's better to make tattoos only when you are mature enough for that, and most people aren't at that time when they are still teenagers. Although that don't goes for every one, because some remains immature and grow up really slowly, while some grows up mentally very early.

It's alike with me, I also love wolves for long, when I was little I never liked them being portrayed as evil in all those silly fairy tales about the poor little girls who had to suffer because of the evil wolf, although in reality it's vice versa - it's people who are killing wolves.

i know, its horrible. i used to hate the "big bad wolf" in little red riding hood, didnt make sence. i loved dogs, and even when i was little i knew they were related to wolves =] ive acually always had a strong connection with animals, i fit with them usually more than people.

Well, when dealing with animals chance that they won't betray or use you for selfish purpose is way higher than with people. :XD:

But at the same time, having a good friend may be way nicer than a faithful pet.

Oh wow. This is really cool-looking tribal. :) It must be very difficult designing tribals.

:iconavestra:
Avestra Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2009  Professional General Artist
Thanks! :)
It isn`t difficult, at least for me. :) I started this one as an ordinary wolf drawing line art the same way I would draw a line art for a color pencil drawing, after what I just filled it with some black furry shapes and that`s it. And finishing my sketch in CorelDraw was easy, much easier than drawing vector flowers with mesh fill in this program.
Tribal designs are easier than pencil drawings or digital images, because in them I have just 2 colors - black and white, and I don`t need to worry about anything like correct color choice so that colors would look well together or shading, what`s always really hard for me to make correctly.
And unless I make something wrong so that I have to redo everything, tribals are also fast to draw. :)

Hm, yes, I see what you mean. But it surely takes practise before they even look decent, for you at least have to know how to draw the animal you're gonna use properly. And the furry shapes are their own challenge too...

Of course that`s true, if I can`t draw an animal well in some other art techniques, I won`t be able to draw it well as a tribal.
But that`s just because art styles are connected, by practicing one you can learn something useful for others. For example anatomy remains the same in all art styles. And also shading is the same no matter I draw with pencils or digitally.

Thank you!

I think, maybe I should practice more drawing tattoo design, since this was my first attempt, and I kinda liked the result.

But for now, I would be scared to draw a design for a real tattoo, because I wouldn`t like to see my mistakes on someone`s skin for the whole life. For now, I still have lots to learn and I still need lots of practice. And paper suits for a young artist`s practice needs much better than skin.

But later maybe I could make tattoo designs for other people, since I don`t want to have a tattoo myself.

There would be no effort if I could draw everything correctly from the first attempt. It took me so long just because I had to redo everything.
Drawing animals with only one color without worrying about shadows and everything else that`s in my other drawings is very easy and much faster. :D

Neļauj, protams. Tur doma ir panākt, lai es maksāju, un kādēļ gan man ļaut kaut ko saglabāt, jo tad jau nav jēgas maksāt. :( Pietiek tik noklikšķināt uz "save" vai "print" vai "export" vai "publish to PDF", lai atvērtos smuks lodziņš ar iespēju noklikšķināt uz "buy now". Pusi no tām izvēlēm, kas ir zem "file" nevaru izmantot.

Nu neko, labi vismaz, ka neviena programma nevar man aizliegt saglabāt uz datora ekrāna esošo attēlu. :)
