This is absolutely amazing. I would get it tattooed on me if I wasn't concerned about infringing the artist's copy rights and if I wasn't worried that I would never find a tattoo artist that could adequately render this on skin.

I've been looking for a way to depict Baphomet in a tattoo that isn't one of the usual images you find (the Seal, the Levi image, etc). This isn't what I was thinking of, but it might just be amazing enough to ink. Wonderful take!

Wow. There's a lot I'd like to say about this, but I'm failing at trying to put something comprehensible together. I really like the concept you have going here, out of all the representations of Baphomet I've seen in art, yours has to be the most unique I've com across! I really enjoy this image!

I always hated trying to draw Baphomet, because I always failed. This is fantastic though, really digging the style~♥

oh thanks a lot! x)

The great thing about baphomet is there isnt one look. A being comprised of symbols is great fun to draw because you can go wild, fueled by an endless amount of possible personal interpretations of the parts that make up the whole.

As for the style, I've mostly got the paper to thank; these books called Paperblanks - they are beautiful hardback sketchbooks with the strangest paper in them... seems to react with my graphite and create all these slight earthy hues in the smudged blending.
