Among the Aspen by Nambroth Among the Aspen by Nambroth
I actually started this one at work, when I was on a break. This is more of me experimenting with my prismacolor markers.

Drawn straight up (no sketch) with markers and micron/zig inking pens on heavy marble patterned cardstock.

Dedicated to my old buddy Kenji, who used to follow me around, especially when I would toss a piece of cheese out the window to him.

Wow, I hardly expected this kind of thing from you (I'm used to your digital work, if I may say ^^;) but this is absolutely beautiful! Especially since you didn't sketch it out first o_o;

I just realized I got you mixed up with someone else, because I keep seeing your dragon avatar (I watch a lot of digital-dragon painters :XD:) I'm sorry! But I really do love your art, and after realizing you're the one with all the beautiful bird paintings, I see you do draw traditionally moreso than digitally :)

My apologies for the mix-up ^^;

... I'm surprised I never found this gem before! Shame on me!
I love the composition; it reminds me of the sense of balance in Japanese art.

i love ravens...my favorite animal proabalby i think they are so funny...and i knwo they are intelligent..i love the prisma color markers on the feathers with the diffrent tones of color to get the dimensions...i think you did a great job with having the grey in the branch to kinda have the bird and the branch colors to relate.

I'm so excited to see someone else capturing the beauty of the raven! Not many people that I know see them as beautiful creatures, but they, coupled with the dragons, are by far my favorite creatures! you've captured them fantastically!

I love how the paper works well as a sky all by itself--no messing needed! I must try this at some point! *is lazy with backgrounds* :D

Beautiful job! Especially considering you did it all without a pencil sketch beforehand.
