Here's a piece that I created for as a birthday gift for a good friend of mine. I've been posting the progress pictures but here is the completed version of this kawaii French bulldog with Japanese style tattoos. 🎀🎀🎀
The piece is personalized with tattoos that my friend has. The duruma cat is made up.
A daruma doll symbolizes strength and perseverance.When you purchase a Daruma doll the eyes will be blank. The purpose of the doll is to think about something you want to accomplish and fill one eye in with a black marker. Once you've completed your goal you fill in the other eye. The purpose of only filling in one eye is so that when you see the doll you remember your goal, and are more motivated to fill in the other eye and give the doll full sight. The cat has a white circle in the eye on purpose. The cat also has double meaning, its a lucky cat & hes also deathly allergic to cats 😹
The gold background symbolizes wealth and good fortune. The frenchie is the kind of dog he jokes about owning one day.
When I found out he loved Naruto, I knew we were gonna be frans☆
I used watercolor, colored pencils, sharpie markers and ink on watercolor paper.
I cant afford to buy gifts for my frans,
