Painting Owl by JoshDixArt Painting Owl by JoshDixArt
Art is so easy even an owl can do it....

So this is designed to be a cover up on one of the other artists that I work with, I'll show some before and afters when it finally gets done. Threw in the candle to give a light source and that will let me have a lot of play with black and midshadows to make sure the old design gets covered yo.

haven't really figured out the colors yet, any suggestions on those or the drawing itself would be more then welcome.

This is so great... would you mind if I used it as one of my tattoos? I absolutely love this. :)

It's been used a ton of times as a tattoo, if you're ok with not having anything original go ahead.

I just liked the concept of mixing logic and knowledge with art, because that's what I do. He's changing basically everything about it so it is fit to me.

I love this! But would you ever re-draw this but with the owl writing? I would love to get this as a tattoo but I'm not an artist. I write. Can't draw or paint for the life of me!

Yeah, unfortunately this design has been raped, pillaged, beaten, burned and stolen a number of times. Just makes me glad I never tattooed it.

I'm glad you never either. The amount of people I've seen with it is unreal. It is THE go to owl tattoo. Ridiculous.

I guess I should take it as kind of a compliment, which I do in way. But mostly i get angry at lazy, unoriginal artists.

Kelly doty is a well known tattoo artist

A for the copying thing. the design between the two is not the exact same, therefore it is not the same piece of art :) A 1-off is still a unique piece.

..... Maybe next time you should see who's copying who. This is mine, original and unreferenced. Did you ask Kelly if she referenced me?

I think this is beautiful. I would love to get your permission to use it (with some tweeking for just me) as a tattoo. It reminds me of my father who loved owls and he's been gone for 5 years now.

Unfortunately the design is very spoken for so I would ask you to please not use it without drastically making some alterations or you can commission me to make you another one with the same concept.

I'd really love to see this in color. Purples cover nicely, and I always loved the way purple and orange look together, so some orange glow from the candle would kick ass. Maybe bright green paint and/or eyes. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished piece! Take before/stencil/after pics!

Depends on how brave the artist is with the body...if he leaves it light tan/brown, some would show through but if he put in heavy brown you'd probably cover most up.

if you work with a blue flame on the candle, you'll be able to hide the previous tattoo behind some darker shades..

other than that, i don't really have any useful suggestions :P
