Sketch Tomahawk (Will still color)

Sorry I didn't get around to color during the contest but if you are really feeling the spirit eagle design and choose my tatoo, I'll color and send to you after the contest.

Thanks,

Hi! Sebastian,
I see I only got three stars from you. Is there anyway I can improve the tat for you? Debbie

i like your designs, but the blade is a little too big. also, i like the eagle, but not in the background. if you can think of another way to incorporate it into the design id love to see it. also i would like to see some color. thank you again for your time and entries

Are you leaning more towards the exaggerated styles rather than the realistic? Was making the design based on what the description says but can do either style, just wondering what you prefer.

Hi, Just wanted to see what you think about the design. Tried to keep it in the dimensions you asked for so that it would flow nice. Let me know if you'd like to see anything done to it. Thanks, Colby

Just Wondering..

If you were going to start rating designs to give everyone a feel of which designs you really like. I know there is only 3 days left but alot of artist here like to improvise with the time they have towards your ratings, suggestions and comments :)

I'm am drawing my final entry, totally different from the last ones, and ALOT more exciting! Its going to include a spread winged eagle on the blade of a detailed tomahawk. And I know your thinking that will never fit on my leg! but the way i am drawing it, there should be no reason why it wouldnt :) it shouldnt wrap around either. Still I would like to know how i did on the others entries too. Thanks.~Jen

sup

tried to put more eagle in there, and i think it stands for a better tattoo cause there is actually design and its not just a tomahawk sitting randomly on your leg.

anything that you dislike about my design, anything i can change or touch up?
Sebastian    Contest Holder
October 3 2009 2:56pm

Jaylock.

dont worry dude. your still in the running. the last thing i need from you is to make the new blade a little smaller. Remember, its supposed to fit on my leg, and i dont want it wrapping all around it. also, you sure your cant add any color into it?

Hello Sebastian

I think I got everything you were looking for in my first entry, it took a while because its was hand drawn and colored, please let me know how you like it! I think all these designs are coming along nicely and being one of cherokee blood myself i might even consider something similar. Great idea, I really enjoyed drawing this one #1386 :)

reply to relentless

Yes, i do plan on getting it in full color. As for the meaning of specific colors, im not entirely sure. As with most Native American tribes, the eagle hold special meaning to the Cherokee. And lastly, my Grandfather, from whom i get my limited Cherokee background, was from North Carolina. Many Cherokee's lived there before they were relocated on a forced march known as the Trail on Tears.

simple beginning design. just wanted to see if u like the blade and handle or if the dimensions are wrong on it. any comments are helpful

Sebastian,

Do you plan on this tattoo being in full color? or just black and gray? If color, are there any colors specific to the Cherokee tribe? Also, is there specific symbolism in feather patterns or animals that have a specific meaning meaning to the tribe as well...One last thing, what part of the country are Cherokees from?

Thanks,

Relentless

reply to gibit

I'd prefer a brown handle. and both the back and front of the blade need to be a little smaller. thanks

Question?

I can change the handle color to just aout any type. did you want a brown or maple colored handle. Also the blade can be smaller did you want the back blade smaller?

Response to art n coffee.

Thank you for taking an interest in my contest. I like the idea of having a thunderbird on the handle. I like the sound of it being burnt in as opposed to painted, so long as the trade off isnt a loss of detail.

Design

Hi, I just signed up. Was lookin at this. I read up on the Cherokee and they used chipped and polished soapstone, and the stone was tied onto wood or bone with leather straps. also I read up that the thunderbird was a symbol of strength and spirit.

how do you feel about a thunderbird being on the handle? would you prefer it to look burnt into the handle or painted?

Comment.

Just wanting to see what you think? Colors are changeable. Also if you'd like a black and white drawing I could post that also.

Yeah man you can draw it separately if you want to. The presentation would probably be better if it was just one drawing, but its up to you

advice

If you want your tat to show strength honor and dignity, then you should have a tomahawk that is worn, and also usually more than one feather shows honor of more than one battle, and strength would mean more than one battle. I will be submitting my sketch in a little while for you, please let me know what you think
Sebastian    Contest Holder
September 24 2009 12:42am

Answer

I would like to see you expand on you ancient story and spiritual concepts, although not drastically over the top. As for the blade, i believe used might work better. But im no artist. If you feel that the tomahawk would come out better if it was designed as a gift that would be fine too.
gibit
September 23 2009 11:17pm

Question

Are you going for realism or an ancient story kind of thing. I'm Native so if you want realism, spiratualism, or sacraficial I am willing to draw all. Also a tomahawk was a weapon of war so what type of blade did you want? Used or just made as a gift?
