Last year, Alisha came in to see me about covering up an old tattoo that she had on her right foot. The details are a little fuzzy now, but we settled on an evergreen branch with a pine cone, for the imagery. I did the drawings but life interfered, as it sometimes does, and she was not able to come in to have the work done until several months had gone by; then she contacted me earlier this year to say she was ready to complete the project. Luckily I keep all of my drawings, and I was delighted to hear from her. I think the final piece turned out very well and I'm happy that she is pleased with the outcome.
Here are some pictures of the drawing, before, outline and gray shading, and final color stages.
