Family Portrait

Here’s a look at a recent commission I did. I was asked to draw a family portrait with the members as their respective animals… two dragons, a mouse and an ox. It was a fun one to noodle with detail. Part of the reason it is designed in such a tight bunch is because the client is also hoping to get it tattooed on his arm with the wings wrapping around his inner bicep. My apologies to the tattoo artist that is given this detailed piece and has to translate it to ink.
