Oh man, those last two tutorials are pretty sweet right? I know they are so cool. I have been waiting to upload some cool looking drawing tutorials instead of those blah tutorials like how to draw couches and beds and things like that. It is time for me to get back to what I do best, drawing wicked art. This next tutorial is going to be on a tattoo design that my father has on his left shoulder. In this next drawing lesson you will be learning how to draw a Celtic sun design step by step. Now the meaning of a Celtic sun is some what shady because there is no reference to it any where. I looked online and in some library books but I couldn't find any meaning what so ever. My father said that the guy that put the tattoo on his shoulder told him it meant that the spirals that are moving to the right represents the sun and victory. Know I don't know how true that is but if any of you out there that are reading this have any idea what this design represents I would appreciate you telling me your idea of the meaning. It is weird because almost every tribal tattoo design has some kind of meaning behind it even if it is just a plain old panther or something. Now even though I have absolutely no clue on what the meaning of the Celtic sun is, I still think that the symbol is a cool design and there should be a tutorial on this awesome looking sun. I personally think that the sun tattoo on my dad has is the best one he has. I think it's mainly because it is very simple and subtle looking. And you know what they say about things that are simple, there the best. The Celtic sun is nothing more than a round circle with a face drawn in the middle and then fiery flame lines that go all the way around the sun but they are not attached to the circle itself. Pretty neat huh? Well this drawing lesson will show you how to draw a Celtic sun design step by step. The instructions are easy to understand and follow which means I know you will do a good job. When you are done you can either take the finished art to your favorite tattoo parlor or print out the finished line art that is at the last step of this lesson. But only do this if you are eighteen years old or older...XD Well I will be back in a bit for more drawing fun so stay tuned people, there is more on the way.
