PRIVATE DISCUSSION (VISIBLE ONLY TO THIS TATTOO DESIGNER)

Placement

Hi Ian. Glad you like it at last. I think on the bicep/shoulder would be a good place for it. Either that or the calf would look cool. I'd go as large as you can with it so the detail stands out. I think its going to look really cool

Brilliant thanks for getting it there, I will see how to end contest with you selected as winner now.
What do you think would be the best size for it, I wanted it on my arm (shoulder to bicep space) I am 6 foot so was thinking about 7 or 8 inches long max with the width in proportion, but I would appreciate what you think would work best with this design.

Thanks Andy

Hi Andy
I think that we are virtually done, are you able to make two slight changes then I think it will be there. Can you thin out the dancers legs a bit , it may be the shading but the legs themselves area bit too thick, especially the upper thighs and especially the non-standing leg (the one sticking out not standing). Instead of the pink cloud shading on the dancer would it not work shading her with the colours from the Aladdin Sane lightening strikes on the face , ie use the same two colours as you have on the face. If these could be done that would be it.
Many thanks

Thanks Andy
very much like this one, so the shading or lines give he impression of skin tone, and there almost seems to be a whiteness to the outfit, but I think that is an effect of the drawing? I like this image a lot, it would just fit better with the Bowie face if she was facing the other way . Also the kind of colour shading in the example image could use the Alladdin Sane colours from is face,
Appreciate your time Andy

Question

OK. So do you want her shading/colouring or do you want just the line sketch like the examples

Hi Andy,
appreciate the designs the back image is now correct (Bowie visage) but I don't have he feel for he dancer. I like the pose and the position just not the image. I have attached a couple of images, these have hat 'pen drawing' quality that I like , can they be applied to your pose and drawing?
Thanks Andy

Thanks for these changes Andy, this is not too far off what I would like.
This is the kind of dancer pose that I was looking for, and the correct outfit etc. On all of your previous drawings the dancer has had a real, lifelike quality which seemed very organic with the face, this is the right dancer image but seems too much like an image in front of the face. I think that I may be describing it badly but are you able to keep this pose and give this dancer the 'line drawing' quality of your previous drawings as I think that and a slight naturalising of the colour would blend the image with the face like your previous designs.
Thanks Andy

Hey Andy, this is great amazing improvement, really close to what I would like. The face hair , eye etc. are all brilliant.

A couple of requests please if possible.
Are you able to change the image of he dancer from what you have to almost a archetypal ballerina. I absolutely love the image that I have attached. Could you make this work by doing something more like ha image, I appreciate hat is a change of outfit and pose etc, but keeping the Aladdin Sane image as it is.
So the dancer dressed and pose as in image would still be over he top covering half he face like the current version, so even though the pose is to a different angle I would still cover the same half a face. I think if you could make that image work we would be done.
I appreciate all the work Andy I have increased the contest prize also.as I am asking for your changes

Many Thanks Andy

Hi Andy
I really liked the direction that you were going with this design, do you think that you will be taking it further as per the changes we discussed? I think we are on the same page re final design.
Thanks

Thanks Andy, I think that you are correct re head size. Also if you can make the kind of changes described above, and make her a little leaner the head will have more presence without being bigger.
Thanks for your thoughts on this. Also you have flexibility with the size, I guessed at the size on the description as I was not that focussed so it can be bigger. Thanks again Andy

Feedback

Hey. Thanks for the feedback. I'll get onto those changes to the dancer you requested. I think making the head larger might take the focus away from the dancer and be to dominating, but I'll come up with some examples so you can decide for yourself. I really like the your idea for your tattoo. I'm a big Bowie fan :-)
Thanks

Feedback

Thanks Andy, this really grabbed me straight away, you have absolutely captured the spirit of what I want.
I really like this. I like the sense of movement from the outfit on the ballet dancer, is it possible that you can give her muscles and legs a stance more similar to the one in the example image, stretched calves, extended feet. When a ballet dancer stands on point it shapes the movement. Lighten up the body tone to paler. Maybe something about the sixe relationship between the dancer and the Bowie head (which I love) does the head need to be slightly larger? I need to look more at this. I would appreciate your input on this as I think that you have caught something here.
Thanks Andy
