:iconnotensmsk:
Now critiquing this work is a strange experience because there is nothing really that could be compared to it. The fact that you gave the impression of a real life photograph with this dragonfly adds to the beauty of the work. Had this been flying over an imaginary world, I would not have liked it much.

Now the twig on which the dragonfly is set is well positioned and the detail of golden brown that the twig has adds to the beauty of the work.

The dragonfly itself, with its watery attributes it really well crafted, the way there are droplets spraying from both tail and wings as if the dragonfly is barely able to hold itself is amazing. On the other hand it seems like a water creature brushing off excessive water. The white lines used to represent the viens in the wings and to give the outer skeleton plays its part well. The last thing that I like is that the head is well defined with the huge eyes. Had that been sort of distorted, I would have... well it sufices to say I prefer this way.

Wonderful work.

Depending on the tattoo position, would it be possible to see the result ? :)

holy shit that's cool! i see you've explored this idea a bit. i think you've got it down. i'd leave out the sig though. or make it less prominent perhaps. it detracts.
