Tired of all the same dragon artists getting recognition on the Tumblogs?
Underappreciated Dragon art is a blog dedicated to showing off dragon art from unknown or young artists.

Question with 2 notes

Anonymous said: Thinking of getting a Toothless tattoo, any cool artwork ideas?

Nothing without the express written permission of the original artist, thats what!

Please do not ever take someones artwork and place it on your body without first asking if they are okay with it. Some artists really are not okay with it, so its important to make sure you have their permission first. Its also technically theft, as you are paying someone else to effectively copy a drawing without giving any of that money to the original artist.

I also can’t really give suggestions as to what you should put on your body, because I do not know your tastes and where you want to put the tattoo (I dunno about what the tattoo community thinks, but I do personally believe certain designs look better on certain body parts). I also don’t know if you have had a tattoo before, and it might not be a good idea to get a really large detailed piece for a first tattoo (I’m personally completely uninterested in getting one so again, don’t really know what the communities thoughts are on this).
Get an artist as well whose portfolio looks like it will most match your idea. Don’t just go with the cheapest- save the extra money.

From Dreamworks official stuff, a few things I think might look good (some would need modifying, IMO):

For fan artwork, generally searching Toothless or HTTYD, on any art site should bring things up and also show you the original artist so you can contact them and ask if its okay. I personally mainly look things up on Deviantart because of how easy it is to submit to Tumblr using the Share options, but you can also check sites like weasyl (I think thats how its spelt?), Wysp, Furaffinity (For the sake of your sanity, make sure safe mode is ON) as well as the HTTYD tag on Tumblr. Just look at the descriptions carefully to make sure its submitted by the original artist. For tumblr specifically- if it doesn’t direct to a source it might not be from the orignal artist.

However, if you want to send another message with a little more detail as to the kind of thing you’re thinking of, I can try and find some stuff to link once I get home from work. I just can’t guarantee the artist will be happy with you getting a tattoo of their piece, however.

I took a break from my professional assignments.  This was supposed to be a silly doodle of Mera, but it sort of turned into a Photoshop experiment where I just let myself have fun.  Success I think!
