Musical Pacific Northwest Hawk Tattoo by WildSpiritWolf Musical Pacific Northwest Hawk Tattoo by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconaj-anba17: 's completed hawk commission two of two, this hawk done in a style based off motifs created by the Indians of the Pacific Northwest.

: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

Your work is beautiful, as you know from all the many comments posted. I love this idea of the musical notes incorporated into the bird (hawk) itself.
Great idea. I would like to use this same idea in some metal work. Not copies but using a bird with notes. I wouldn't want to do this if you felt like it ws taking from you. I guess what I'm asking if it would be allowable to use this idea in a freehanded metal drawing to show a firebird with notes in its wings.

check out the concept in my gallery "Firebird Welcome Sign"

As long as it is merely the concept and that no parts of the original lines are reused or altered. Thanks for asking. :)

I'm not really into tatoos but this design is very good. Love the note incorporation into the design. The wings appear as a piano. Very original and interesting.
Great work.
