I'll see what I can get done. I've been on an artistic craze right now and might have them all done by the end of the week if I keep going this way. Lol. =)

You should check put Nick Baxter or Nick Chaboya, or Jeff Gogue for inspirational tattoos. I think they will change the way you think of the artform :) I might do a painting of a forum members horse, see if I can squeeze it in between drawings :)
Looked a little, but I have to leave for work. Very very talented artists, I love the sleeve work, the rest is still not exactly what I like. I'll have to look around and see if I can pull up some images of what I like/don't like. I'll look more into those artists later and reply when I get home.

Started working in GIMP. Start with Itty Bitty's picture. Greys are very hard to do for me because of their lack of colors, its hard to try and put some life into them. Luckily Itty Bitty is a paint therefore has pinks spots, blue eyes and brown fleabitten spots. This alone has taken me....three hours. 40 minutes for outlining, and the rest for the coloring. I fixed the stomach line a bit, looks a little better I think.

Don't want to overload you, but can I toss a couple out? You can do whatever you think looks best with them...

Okay so my Tatto preferences (not a critique, just give examples to a style). Whether or not the tattoo is well done or poorly done, I believe realistic random pictures to not accent the body well, while more artistic forms can help give form and be more appeasing to the eye. You're not drawing on a flat paper here, its a 3D object and I believe it should be sculpted to the 3d object. Unless it a rather simple design, which I can see more excuse for. Which is why I have such a hard time deciding on a tattoo for myself, but I want to somewhat design it but have no idea how to make it work well on the body.

I don't like :

^^This one is well done to compliment the back, but I still don't like it.

I Like :

I don't find those tattoos to be attractive. I think that's what it all comes down to. I agree that artists can have amazing and beautiful artwork, but on the human body...I don't like it. I like most sleeve work, I dislike most calf work, and back work is 50/50. (The rest of the body is iffy. Lol

I don't think there really is a problem of overloading. The images will sit here for me once I get the time. I'll get to them eventually if you don't mind waiting. =)

Don't mind waiting at all. I'm so bad at drawing that my stick people routinely commit suicide rather than live on as malformed as they are.

Haha, Don't get me started on people. I can sort of draw horses.....and that's about it. My realistic people will join your stick figure in suicide.

Ugh. The head came out as I wanted (needs touchups still be decent compared to most heads for me!) and the rest of the body is like someone puked grey on it. Fixed the high withers a little, still have to try and fix the sway back.

Mane will cover the odd looking forehead.....and the ears will be fixed on final touchups. Yes I do color in with rapid squiggly lines. With my carpel tunnel cramping my hand I must stop for the night. Lol

No problem! It takes me forever to do the graphic painting. I always end up taking a break part way through. Haha. But the good part is Im about 65% finished! Now all I have are the hard parts, lower legs, hooves and mane/tail and fleabitten areas. Then the final touch ups, sometimes I can't tell funky shading until its all shaded in. Like right now the back has to be redone, maybe a little bit in the shoulder.....we'll see how much more detail I'll want to go in. Lol.
