Working on a tattoo design for the lovely Jacqui Oakley... Here's the start. I'd welcome any thoughts, I'm going for a decorative-but-modern-and-not-too-girly-but-still-sorta-girly-type-thing with it.

The pencil sketch is a bit more legible than the refined version. The Q makes a bit more sense in the pencil sketch, too.
yeah, trying to bridge that gap 'twixt the pencil & the computer-machine... thanks, fellah!
I actually really like the pencil sketch - even as a tattoo. The style of it makes for a very organic and custom feel.
Let's critique this AFTER Jacqui gets the tattoo.
Dang, really torn. I love the shape in the vector lines that connects the capital S with the lowercase e. But the linework in the pencil'd Q feels right. This looks great though. Excited to see it!
You're so cruel Darren! Thanks for the feedback folks, it really helps.
Yeah, thanks all - the shot posted is sort of a before/during kinda thing. I was seeing good things happening at each stage so, just working at bringing the pencil & vector iterations closer together - hearing what y'all are saying is totally helping!
But you love me anyways, Jacqui. A process shot while it's getting inked would be a nice touch.
I'll see what I can do, Darren!
