Kind of an interesting one that I really enjoyed doing.
She was born in the year of the rabbit, and seeing as how 2011 is the year of the rabbit she requested a rabbit tattoo.
The reference material she brought was all black and fairly stylized rabbit images, like Chinese paper cut outs (which were also very cool).  One picture she brought almost had a lithograph type feel, and after some discussion (Watership Down definitely came up) we decided to head in that direction.  We didn't have a specific picture to go off of, just something that looked etched on and a nice pose for the side of the calf.
It was super fun to draw something in a totally different style than I'm used to.  I'd be really into doing more stuff like this in the future...
Outlined everything with a single needle and it was a very smooth and enjoyable session.
