The simplicity of this piece is lovely.  Like an old Chinese ink painting.  Beautiful!

Could I use this as a tattoo design?

yes i would happily give permission to use this as a tattoo, although if you do use my work could you upload a picture of your design so i could see it and in turn link back to it from this piece?

thankyou - its actually fractal created digitally from shapes made in apophysis and put together in photoshop, granted it does have a traditional drawing feel but its all digital :giggle:

it is an interesting process and true it is all about the end result but sometimes how you get there can be just as interesting

i think its the brown colours i added to this that give it that sort of feel - i did try this in other shades but the brown/cream combination worked best - thankyou so much for the compliment

thankkyou so much for the compliment - i think the minimalistic colours really help put emphasis the shape and almost movement within this piece it is an edit of a brighter coloured piece of mine 'humming bird' but i don;t know why for its duller tones i tend to prefer this one

thankyou for the compliment - and yes it can be - it depends on the person - though i know i have several people in mind that i would like to push

I would push the doctors who are reponsilable for my gradfather death down the stairs! A really long flight of stairs.

i think i would push my own doctors down stairs and the ones responsible for your grandfather and mine off a building ! not to mention the one who told my dad to go home an sober up ( ok dad was a drinker at one point but by this time he had cut back) when in actuality he had a brain tumor that later killed him

I feel bad about your dad but at least not all doctors are bad my aunt and another uncle help poorer people for free and do charity work.

maybe its just the doctors i know then that seem to be useless - and its good to hear that there are people like your aunt and uncle that are out there who are good people
