I really like this but I think it might work better if the skin was white. I'm not sure, I'd have to see it.

isn't the skin white? or the skin of the dragon?

yeah, my mistake, it's surrounded by all that red and looks to me like it has a pinkish cast or slight flesh tone. Optical illusion on these "old" eyes! I think the design rocks!

This looks really good, but it'd look even better if the tattoo followed the contours of the woman's body, rather than being 2-D.
There's a tutorial here (http://www.polykarbon.com/tutorials/displacement/displacement.htm) that you might find useful to achieve this.

I really like it, but the fact that her shoulder cuts her lips in half horizontally makes her face confusing visually.
What shade of white did you use, becuase I'm seeing the pinkish cast as well. Perhaps a brighter, slightly blue white?

i know about the displacement map and all; this is a handrawing and i scanned it
the white should be white i think the red creates some optical illusion

Love the strong and simple colour scheme. Chaosgoat and Dis have made some good points.

I'm not getting any pinkish glow and I think that the 2D nature of the tattoo sits well with the overall design. All in all I think it's a strong illustration and my only nitpick (seeing as you are looking for crits) is the inconsistency and roughness of the outline - tidy up that part and you'll have one great pic on your hands.

I like it.
Although there should maybe be a little bit of something saying there's a shoulder blade in there somewhere...
Just a thought.
But very nice as it stands.

I was thinking something similar - maybe a nice curved line indicating the spine?
...and on a second viewing I noticed that if you follow the jawline to the mouth & put in an imaginary bottom lip, she would have no chin - dropping & extending the jaw should clean this up.
I'm not trying to be ultra picky - I already think this is a great illustration - just a couple of little tweaks hither & thither should greaten it's greatness!
