A friend requested this as a basis for a tattoo she wanted done. I asked for color ideas and took creative liberty after I was given basic guidelines. Blending similar colors of marker and pencil worked out well. Trying to add depth to the shaft of the feather was a challenge working in such a small space and keeping the shadows and highlights consistent with an imagined light source.
