Tribal- Wolf Song by Mongrelistic Tribal- Wolf Song by Mongrelistic
Seeing how the tribals have been getting more attention than most everything else in my gallery:
I have to request that you DO NOT use these without asking me first.
Do NOT just 'notify' or tell me. Please ASK and wait for my ANSWER.
And it'd be much more appreciated that if you DO plan on using a design as an actual tattoo (or another use besides prettying up your webpage), that you send a little money my way. People commission other artists for tattoo designs. I designed this, so don't I deserve something?

((I'm not just being a paranoid person; this has happened to me once already.... Sorta felt cool someone wanted to use my design, but then felt hurt because it was sort of like taking advantage of my work.))
---------------------------------------

EDIT
Talk about a friggin quest for improvement

A wolf screaming his vocals out onto an open sky, simply singing for the hell of it!

Reason why is this is a tribal design for :iconblackwolfds: just as a fun little thing. :3
When I thought of a wolf for him- I thought of a lone wolf howling.. so there. Did this one during Creative Writing XDDDD

Time Taken- (sketch) 30 mins

Yay for light contrast tool from Corel Painter! (Helps it be darker)

Over 30 favs? Over 800 views? Wow thanks. :D

This was intended for a friend of mine specifically. If you'd like something similar, commission me and I'm sure I could whip something up.

I love this drawing! I have been searching for something similar for quite a few years now. I actually do want to use it as a tattoo, if that is alright. How much are you talking for a price? I agree you should be paid for your work.

Well this particular drawing was specifically for a friend, I could draw you something as similar as you want though! :3

I always have trouble naming a price, because I don't want to overcharge someone, yet I want to earn something out of my work.

Usually I'm between 15$-30$. :)

Thanks for the response! I do not have a problem with using a different design, if you're willing to draw one for me! In that case can you draw something, in this same tribal wolf line art type, of 2 adult wolves and 2 wolf pups? I am willing to pay up to $50, if this is acceptable for you. I want this tattoo to fit completely across my lower back, landscape style. I was thinking about one of the adults sitting, one laying down, and the two pups kind of playing some how... I hope that is not too many restrictions! Let me know if you're willing to try!
Thanks! I love your artwork!

That's barely any restrictions at all. :3
I'll work at some sketches and see if I can upload them later.. I have no scanner right now so you may have to wait a few days till I get can get to someone who has one(i know a few people so)....

I tend to try to sketch out the basic idea(s) to show you in case there are changes you want before anything major comes into play.

Also please feel free to email me if you're not active on deviantart at the_bystander_effect@hotmail.com

Oh wow, this is gorgeous! Very beautiful, and keeps the anatomy in a simple way.
The only thing that looks as though it could be improved is the paws. They seem... I don't know, .... lumpy, to me.
But muy excellente!

Lumpy? Hmmmm I can see what you mean there....
Heh, when I read that... the word "lumpy" made me giggle... Why? I have no idea.

Gracias senorita. :3

Wow.
Just, wow.

The face is incredible! (even though, in my strange brain, it almost reminds me of a bear)

Lmao, the only thing is, the tail is a little squirrelish. I think its just because of the large curves within the tail, because it looks normal if you focus on the fur outline.

I clap for you.

Yeh I like to make wolf tails obnoxiously fluffy in my tribals. Old habits die hard.

I really like the face, but the pattern of the backleg for some reason doesn't seem to flow with the piece. I realize there needs to be contrast between them to show shape but, I dun know, something doesn't flow.

The chest and back have a good design, I applaud....WITH TEA!

YES TEA IS THE ULTIMATE APPLAUSE!!!! *Flail*

I actually see what yer meaning with that Songdog. When I finished the piece and looked at it my first thought(after thinking omgawdilovethehead) was "FUCK I SCREWED UP HIS LEG!!!"

Maybe for different reasons of what you're thinking, but yeh.
