First draft for a 3/4 sleeve based on a personal story. The scene is set in her sacred garden. This draft helps our communication as I have to get the drawing ready before my trip to Europe. It's first quick sketch based on her measures, a translation of all the ideas she wanted in her tattoo. It also sets the mood so that I can start thinking more about flow and how all the elements will merge into each other.
