Hello everyone and welcome back to another tutorial here on DragoArt.com. I am your host and drawing instructor for this lesson, Dragon_Queen. Today I will be showing you "how to draw a tribal moon design" that can be used for a really cool looking tattoo. Tribal art has come a long way from it’s Polynesian background and the concept of tribal art keeps growing bigger everyday. I have come to really enjoy drawing out different types of designs that fall into the tattoo category of the pop culture section. Art is a very constructive way to let the inner you out, and express how one is feeling inside. Most artists create to make statements on their beliefs, or just to express how they feel at the current time in their lives. I love drawing all different types of things and when I stay on a certain subject for a while than that is when you know that I am going through a phase of experimental art. I love drawing and I also love what I do. Tribal designs sometimes express how I feel, and through that feeling I create drawings that I am happy with and fond of. This tutorial is a simple one indeed. I will show you “how to draw a tribal moon” with just five drawing steps. You can get as freaky and as creative as you want when learning from one of the lessons on the site. I mean it’s always good to expand your mind and add a little something of yourself into your drawing when ever possible. I am going to be leaving you now but I shall return. I hope you enjoy this tutorial that I am about to submit. Peace out guys and girls and happy drawing!
