The first picture I've done dealing with Celtic Knots. I was just sitting there when it hit me, I should do a picture of a lady with celtic knots for hair! so I did. After I did this one, I realized she could join up with 3 other ladies to form a circle, so I did that too. (thank goodness for Photoshop!)

this Drawing has it's own online store! go check it out. get this design on T-Shirts, Mugs, Mousepads or whatever else your heart desires.

Hello, I hope that I've come to the right place! I am a miniaturist (make scale miniatures) and have a scene that I would like to construct from a favorite poem of mine. I am, however, stumped by the term "plaiting a dark red love knot, into her long black hair". Does anyone here know what this would look like? Would she be braiding a celtic knot into her hair with red ribbon? Any help with clarifying this would be greatly appreciated!

Now I'm even more impressed. It's knot just coloured knots. You actually shaded them to look like hair. I can't even imagine how long it must have taken to finish the whole celtic knot hair ring picture.
