No word of a lie I just read a comment that a member left and they suggested that I stick to drawing realistic stuff and cool tattoos. That made me laugh a bit because I do intend to keep doing what I do best, and that is submit some awesome designs that I conjure up all On my own. After uploading the panther, werewolf, lion, and the other cool tattoo art, I was asked multiple times to make a tutorial based on the same drawing and coloring concept of an eagle tattoo. So here I am today with my version of "how to draw an eagle tattoo", step by step. This is a real simple concept to take on because all I did was draw the head of an eagle. I was going to draw a full bodied eagle but to keep thing simple, tackling an eagle head would be a more realistic task for you guys to take on. The design is wicked cool and to make this eagle tattoo look even more incredible, I also drew some blazing flames pouring out of the eagles mouth. The intense expression in the eyes, and the clawed shape of the beak all help make this tattoo design an exciting drawing to replicate. This would also make an awesome tattoo for a guy’s shoulder, calf, or even on the back shoulder. I had so much fun sketching out this eagle and I know for a fact that you guys will love it too. The coloring job just pops and it is such an eye catching display that makes you want to stare and stare. Thanks so much guys and I hope you enjoy.
