I prefer the original with the old style skull. The jaguar morphed in to it is overkill.

My tattooist also said it would be too much in such a small place to tattoo.

I would rather have the jaguar somewhere In the inner bicep and that’s the only place in the entry he said could still be improved :)

Hi

Just one more thing i changed the concept a bit maybe this will help in the final decision making :)

Had in idea that maybe i could add some flowing water out of the skulls eyes and mouth that could turn into the snake at the bottom i think it looks pretty cool but its still needs several hours of work before iam done with it :(
I moved the Jaguar to be a filler in the inner bicep but that needs some fine working too

Well hope to hear from you

jaguar at bottom

Submitted design #367152

so i added in the jaguar at the bottom i morphed it into the skull
i uploaded design #367145 where is there a black outline thats the official outline for a full sleeve for tattoo parlors

i can make a snake head to the inner bicep area if there is going to be any empty space then that could be used there

Looks incredible :) very well done :)

We just need a jaguar in the bicep area somehow and that will be the missing peice in this amazing design :)

Thank you for all the hard work you are putting in to this :)

Perfect just waiting on the 4 photoshopped arms showing different view points of the entry on the sleeve... this will allow me to see how it wraps around and ultimately what it will look like tattooed etc.

The other designers have found away across 4 separate images side by side so 100 per cent of the arm from all angles. It would be amazing if you could do the same so I can see this :)

Thanks

Hey

sure thing ill do a quick mock up of the design on 4 arms with different angles :)
Cool happy you like the warrior it does go really well with the overall theme

Ill try out a jaguar and a snake at the bottom also so you can basically have more to chose from

Also

The other designers have managed to find a way to show the image photoshopped on two 4 arms that show the tattoo wrapped from all angles of the arm, basically a 360 view from 4 angles showing the scale and size and how it would look wrapped around the arm from all angles.

Please can you see if you can do the same, it really allows me to be able to visualize what it would look like wrapped from all angles etc

Does this make sense?

Really well done with the new face, I prefer it to the original so good job! :) I think I Prefer it without the jaguar morph and also without the color. Good idea thou but I think it would be better just black and grey. Could we had some bones as jewelry like in the nose, ears and lips? Just to make him look more sinister and warrior like?

The skull is perfect :)

Apart from adding the bones, only one thing left to do, and that just the bicep area, i understand atm the warrior has what seems to be shoulder armor and looks good in the picture uploaded, how ever i feel it wouldn’t wrap around the bicep well so feel that is still an area that we can work on. I’m still hopeful of a jaguar. That is the missing part or the jigsaw at present.

Everything else is spot on :)

color

I usually dont like colored tattoos but some times i do use 1-2 prominent one so it make the design pop more
I did some reaserch and i found some war paintings did have red or blue in them not sure if you will like it or not but it does make the face more authentic and eyegrabbing

new faces

So i tried to make a more authentic face for the sleeve
I did some random face painting one i felt would look good with the concept hope it turned out good :)
If you want me to change or add a feature just let me know
I tried to make a jaguar face into the human face also but i am not sure on that if i like it or not

Started workin on the bottom part but its not finished yet so dont look at that part for now :D

I like the sound of the skull being enlarged with the jaw and open mouth and a realistic looking snake interacting with the skull mouth, that sounds cool :) but all suggestions sound good to be fair :)

Perfect I leave you to it. I am
Very open to all ideas so let your imagination run wild!

Heyy

hopefully you can see it clearly i changed a few things :)
I added in a quetzlcoatl that morphs into a snake and that snake morphs into a skull
Hopefully it not too much but i really had a blast morphing these together
I can change out the main head i dont think that would be a problem but time is running short
There is a B option that i would be really happy if you chose me as a winner ( you can send an email to the site and you can request me as a winner )
We would get another 7 more days on the winning design page its a lot easier to concentrate on one designer rather then several one

Ofcourse this is just an option i would love cause this design is quite fun to work on and the more time i have the more crazy ideas we could try out

Let me know if you want anything changed
In the meantime ill do another idea with the temple gate and the snake

Or a snake that comes out of the mouth of the skull and maybe some worshippers could be kneeling beside it in a jungle scenery

Sorry if i jump around with ideas it was so long since someone asked for a design like this :)

Ill try to send in as much as possible in the remainig timeframe

The idea of the skull is intriguing... I’m open to se ehow that pans out, I was thinking a realistic looking snake, open mouth with fangs showing etc... but can try both options if you want, what ever you feel would look better,

I’m really looking forward to you ideas with the jaguar...

I really LOVE the hand, out of all the designer and all the entry’s I have received, it’s the hand and the sand grains forming a skull that I have loved the most... it’s soo Arlo I love it. If we can think of something completely random like when designing the jaguar my mind will be blown! Lol

Also my Mexican friends are saying they feel the man I am using doesn’t look mayan which is really annoying... they said I should be looking at having a mans face that is similar to the warriors from the Mel Gibson Mayan film “apocalypto” The said the makeup, jewelry in the form of bones interacting with the nose, ears and mouth are correct and realistic... they don’t like my current guy that was designed by Arlo... maybe look online on google images and see if any of the warriors face could be sketched instead of the current man I have. I think that could improve the peice and give it a new feel and not just copying an exact tattoo from Arlo if that makes sense,

Opens up a few more options :)

Hey

Awesome thanks for the detailed feedback :)


1.)
Sure ill make it larger (i can add the face separately also so it could be enlarged to fit your arm perfectly at the tattoo parlor, if i win your contest we will still have 7 more days to finetune it on the deisgn transfer page and you can donwload the design from there in high res without watermark )


2.)
Sure no problem

3.)
I was unsure about the Jaguar also, it seemet a little bit off
Maybe the skulls jaw could transform into a mexican temple entrance that has a snake coming out of it ?
You mean a simple snake or one that was used in most mayan temples as a stone sculpture the Quetzalcoatl ?

Feedbacesigning,

This is very very good! I was like wow when I seen it for the first time! Very well done! I love the hand with the sand grains forming the skull! It’s very clever and certainly something Arlo would think of!

A few things thou, I’m trying to image how the image will wrap around the parts of the arm that are not viable from this angle... please can we provide additional photoshop arms of different angles like the inner bicep me wrist etc

I love this entry but thinking we can improve by doing the following. I have attached your entry and created 3 squares, 1 x yellow box will the number 1 to the side of it. 1 x red box with the number 2 next to it and 1 x green box with the number 3 next to it. Please see below my suggestions for each box

I’m thinking this:

1) Yellow box

The main mans face looks a little squashed and small. Originally I wanted this face to be a lot bigger... I would make that bigger so it’s fits in to the entire yellow box...

2) Red box
This will be the lowered Chichen Itza with the hand to fit in the red box..

3) Green Box
to compensate for the loss of space caused from increasing the main man and lowering everything, let’s get rid of the jaguar at the bottom and lower the skull... with the skull being lowered and the jaguar gone, we gone maybe add more to the skull and have that wrapped around the lower wrist. One thing another deistner did that I thought was cool was morph a snake in to the skull somehow as Mayan were obsessed with snakes etc... if you can and have space then great but if there is no space, it’s fine


Additional:

At present with the design, it’s insane and I can picture it wrapping around all parts of the sleeve minus one area.. this one area of the sleeve needs designing and this is the bicep and tricep area. This design will be be the entire bicep area which is quite a large space, I’m thinking let’s have the jaguar here but would love it to be morphed in to something...

Loads of feedback for you here, sorry or was app late.

I’m am very excited about this entry! I love the imagination with the hand... if you have any other imaginative ideas like that I’m open to them!
