Derp - I was sorting this out to send Falmouth uni and thought I might as well post it here too~
The brief was to combine 2 individual's tattoos. I tried to make it look Japanese woodcut-ty? =S
(It looks rather strange I know...)

The Japanese in the left-hand box is just a 'Happy Birthday' message.

watercolour and ink
the above artwork is Liara K Crane

It looks great, I especially love the lily and the splashy water :3

Woah! I love this scaly little fellow! What a lovely painting! I am in awe of people who can make, like, REAL ART. I think it evokes the traditional style you seem to have been going for, so well done.

I think any traditional-art skills are the result of it being drilled into me from the various art GCSEs, A-levels and other courses I have done P:
