this is so sad, its bright and cherry though too, because of how you mixed in the color scheme and the bright sun gleaming in on the city which is a good thing. because it makes you see just enough of the city to where you want to look more and more in depth of the picture, its hard to explain but it made sense in my mind..this is sooo awesome, maybe my favorite thing you've done great job on the subject too ;3; i love the anatomy as always your art is so great <3
This is a really nice piece. It has a lot of feel and emotion to it, mostly sadness and the feeling of being alone.
The greyish bird really brings out the real emotion of it, though. The whole picture seems to just fit together like a puzzle; it all fits.
This is so amazing. Seeing this..just makes my heart go thump. I dunno why, maybe because it's awesome? I THINK SO. I wiswh I had the patience to actually do something good, but I have not. So yay I love this
I've been meaning to comment on this for aaaages. The sepia look to this is just perfect - and the juxtapositioning is bang on. You can't help but get sucked in. Can't quite place what mood/emotion it brings up - but it's something different every time. Sorry to fawn, but it's true.
Haven't got the balls to try *proper* backgrounds yet, but this is a real kick to give it a try.
And, of course, the crow itself looks gorgeous. Do you work from a photo, life or just memory?
I have some reference photos around to make sure I don't really botch anatomy, but I'd say about 85%-95% is right from my head, just because I've studied birds so much. :} Reference was used to double check lengths of feathers, feather groupings, etc, things like that. ^^
Cool. I'm in a space right now where personal inspiration's running kinda dry, but I've *really* got a drawing-from-photos kick. Mabbe I should start with owls cause I've worked with 'em... If going with what you studied works for you, I'm gonna give it a try.
No problem! Just remember that drawing from photos is a great way to learn, but should never be used as a crutch! If possible, try to draw from life (it's harder but it makes you learn so much more artistically).... zoos and wildlife centers are great for this! ^^
