This is for a request for a totem pole tattoo design. It’s a combination of totem, tiki, and Kustom Kulture styles. The eyes and motifs on the body are traditional, the raised eyebrows and tapered shape are tiki, and the design in the wings comes from custom car scallops.
I guess you could call this a warmup sketch, an hours diversion. I happened to notice that the shape of the eagles beak is surprisingly true to life on highly stylized totem eagles. Pencil on a cheap 4″ x 5″ sketch pad, too small for a whole lot of detail:
