Tribal Art

This is mostly stuff I drew by hand and then scanned into a computer and messes around with the make it look “Cool” I did most of these sometime around 2004 I drew half the image on graph paper and then added the flip side in Photoshop.


A tribal Angel

This was my first attempt at doing this, this fairly basic and a bit rubbish, I think it could possibly be improved upon by making the angel’s upper body simpler like a mirror of the “Skirt” bit at the bottom. I think I was just messing around with the wings and decided to complete the image.


A tribal dragonfly

This was my second attempt more complex, I think the head needs work, but aside from that it’s ok.


A tribal frog thing

Bit of a cop out here, this is actually the same as the dragonfly above except that I’ve moved where the two mirrored halves meet, I think it kinda looks like a frog so I kept it.

Pointy Thing:

This isn’t meant to look like anything, I guess is could be part of the decoration on a sword or a back tattoo or even a spaceship if you squint really hard. I was trying to replicate something I’d done and lost several years earlier, I’m not sure I succeeded.



Most complicated one I’ve done, I think it’s my favourite, if only I had the original files/paper this was drawn on…

Totem Pole:

This is actually just the pointy tribal thing above with the location of the mirroring changed. It’s probably just pareidolia but there are some pretty scary looking faces/skulls in there if you look hard enough…
