Majestic Tribal Phoenix Design by WildSpiritWolf Majestic Tribal Phoenix Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconilmaestro87: 's completed tattoo of a majestic phoenix rising up out from the flames.


:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:


Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.



Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03

This is wickedly awesome. It looks as if either the Phoenix is blazing after coming through a flame, or burning towards being reborn. Sensational creation. Offers both a sense of powerful determination as well as willing to burn away the old to get things new. To offer a sense of saying that the burdens of the past must die, but the lessons will lead me into the new. Dynamic imagery.

Fav'd, as you should know.

If it is for solely personal practice, that's fine. However, I'd rather you not repost it around the internet or use it for anything other than practice. Thanks! :)

Hey WSW just saw this and I think this is absolutely and incredibly gorgeous. I've been thinking hard about my next tattoo and I would DEF love to have you set it up for me. I read all the information about comissions and everything and this phoenix is quite close to what I'm looking for. I we can't use ones you've already made for people but this is quite similar to what I'm thinking. Anyway we could talk about the design I'm thinking of getting myself? I know you're probably incredibly busy so answer me when you can.

I'd also like to point out your work is absolutely beautiful and if this design works out more than likely I'd come back for a wolf design as well.

Very nice! And don't ever worry about watermarks, any artist worth his/her salt knows what watermarks are for, and any true fan should know as well.

Beautiful piece, I really love the tail, and the flames on the wing tips :)

Such a shame that you have to have such a huge watermark. Why do people have to be assholes? *sigh*

That, I'm sure, she wouldnt mind at all since its a direct link back here and everything stays as is on the page. Her issue is people simply taking the work and reposting it off page or copying it. Basically so long as it something like "Dude, check this out! [link]" and not "Dude, check this out! [picture]", I would imagine its cool :)


But major kudos for double checking.
