~Autumn-Sunrise commissioned me to draw tatts on her old character Nightwolf. She asked if I could give her something Celtic and tribalish, and told me that she loved the symbology of Yggdrasil, and also sent a ref of Tolkien's White Tree (with the 7 stars)...So I mixed the two concepts and made knotwork out of them, and also gave her a star on her forehead like the char "Starbrow" from one of Tolkien's books (and also the Lady Amalthea, since Autie loves TLU).

The symbology is, quite obviously, a tree and many stars, and a heart knot over her chest. The tree symbolizes the connection between earth and sky, and Nighty's personal connection with these things (because the branches are tied in with her heart knot). The tatts look fuzzy because I made them "furry" as tatts would be on fur, as opposed to skin. Autie will be coloring and brushing up this pic in the future, so stay tuned to her gallery for that. :)

(Tatts drawn on my Cintiq, over Autie's char lineart. Please do not steal or distribute this design, or use in any way without our permission.)
