I don't see a way to end the contest early, so when time is up, I'm guessing I'll be able to choose this #363637 as the winner. I will send you a picture of my tattoo when completed. Very excited. Thank you again.

Wait, I didn't see this one yet (#363637) when I wrote my last comment. This is perfect. We're done! Thank you so much.

Comments

Yes, thank you. I did see your latest. I really do love the #363600. I thought I would like the tree to be fuller with leaves, but when we try that, it looks too crowded in the drawing. If there were a way to do a tree more full than this, but not quite as bushy and full as your latest tree, that would be fine. In the end, I would be very happy and proud to wear #363600!

Final adjustments2

Hi. For some reason, overall, #363600 is still my favorite. I like the perspective of the warrior bowing toward the tree and that the leaves look almost like little flames. So let's keep this entire drawing, just add the belt buckle and update the lettering to Roman letters and we're good. Thank you for putting up with me!

Final adjustments

Okay, I think I took things a bit too far on the latest version. I just didn't end up liking the tree plus the warrior and tree are too crowded. My fault. Let's revert back to the last drawing (#363600) and start there again with a couple of tweaks and we'll be done.

1. The same tree with similar leaves, just more leaves so there should be fewer sun rays coming through.
2. Add the same belt buckle 5-point star - that was perfect.
3. Don't make the drawing as dark as this latest one. Keep it the same as #363600 or maybe just a tad darker.
4. My wife yelled at me about the letters being in runic writing. So let's do Roman alphabet (I've attached a sample). Basically all letters are similar to standard English writing except letters are all caps and the same height, and the letter U is written as a V.
5. Make the letters just a little deeper into the stone for better contrast with the stone surface.

Sorry for the last changes. I know we're down to the wire and you will be the winning artist. Just want to get this as close as possible for my tattoo person. Thank you so much.

Hello, I'm not sure of the inscription, in the alphabet that you gave there are some letters missing. note .

And one last thing for final design. Please have the warrior wear a belt buckle like the picture attached or similar. The 5-pointed star in a circle is the one symbol that crosses almost all western religions and pre-dates most of them. Thank you again!

Question on style

I just saw your question about feathering or engraving. I think I like the engraving style of #363583 where things are more bold. Of course, please keep the perspective of your latest one #363600.

So with your latest one, the warrior and the tree trunk is great. It shows the sword creating the chasms that allow the tree to grow. Wonderful. Don't change that if you don't have to.

Let's just adjust the following:

1. Archaic latin letters
2. More lush on the tree with some light still shining through. Tree can be taller if that helps with perspective and design. Again, leaves can be different size/shape if that helps.

Very exciting. We're close!
Thank you.

Also, the angle on the sword on the last pass was better as it looked like the sword was breaking through the stone. If you can show that angle again, that would be great. Thank you.

Wow

Wow, incredible. I can't stop looking at it. I think we're very close to the final winner. You have amazing vision and I appreciate that.

Last few tweaks:

1. In the last version, you had the tree further back along the ground with respect to the warrior. Can you do that again? I really liked that perspective. The warrior in the foreground made the tree seem like it was bigger

2. Please add a few more leaves to the tree so that it's more lush. I'm okay with a little less light coming through (though I do still want some light to come through the tree). If it helps, the leaves could be smaller, just more of them.

3. Please use the archaic style of Latin letters for the words, letter for letter. I've attached a picture of the archaic alphabet

Thank you!

Comment

If the warrior/knight has to be a little bit smaller in order to keep perspective and fit in the picture with wings, I understand. Hopefully not too much smaller, but a little is fine if necessary.

Thank you again. We're getting closer. I didn't notice it last time, but I love the "rounded earth" perspective that you did. The stone ground with inscription looks great, the tree is good

A few things to adjust:

1. This warrior is better, but I would still like the archangel style wings on his back (a symbol that we all have divine power). If he has to lose some of his armor and adornments to make that work, that's fine. Just make sure he's still muscular and stout.

2. Instead of the generic sky, can we put a cloud layer (with or without sun) up there, with rays of sun coming down upon the tree (maybe even through the tree), warrior and ground? I would like it to look like the heavens opening up

Thanks

Thank you

Thank you for a great drawing. I really like the cracked stone ground, the three words, and the tree coming up out of it. The warrior kneeling is nice too, but I would ask to make him beefier or just more bad-ass. Another option would be to put something closer to a Knights Templar type warrior. Not too keen on the volcano in the background with the smoke up above. I think it takes away too much from the tree, which I would like to see more prominent.
