Reverence by Nambroth Reverence by Nambroth
I was commissioned by :iconfeather-dancer: to do a very speedy painting of Long-Tailed Tits! What fun. If I didn't have so much other work to do I would have taken this into further refinement. Maybe someday!

Corel Painter, Oil Pastel brushes, Acrylic brushes

Long tailed tits are so sweet :) I always love to encounter groups of them on my forest walks. Our Swedish long tail tit lacks the black eyebrow, their heads are completely white. Sometimes we spot hybrids though ;) I really enjoy the rough feel of this picture, nice poses and very life-like.  Great work!

The first thought that came to mind when I saw this was "Bird Jesus", that being said, this is a lovely piece of art.

That's so cool! Long-tailed tits are my favourite birds. I think how they hover, and how relatives help raise each other's young is brilliant. And I love the composition and colour here!

The placement and poses of the birds are great. I like that they're all not looking the same way--gives it better design and more realism. The concept is good overall, too.

I like tits.
While they are not as bold as sparrows, at least they are pretty and/or colored.

What can one read wrong there?
I. LIKE. TITS.
Or birds in general.
They can fly.
I want to fly too.
Now me sad.

That's a requisite.
It comes before flying.

Still, you could fall.
End up like Humpty-Dumpty...
I definitely don't think you could be put back together again.

Well, i COULD fall. But I am not afraid of falling.
Even then... I have wings.

And who says I am not already cracked "and all the King's horses and all the King's men, couldn't put me together again."
But some, who like puzzles, still try. ;)

Mm.
But what if your wing got snapped because of a tree?

I love puzzles. :lol: Maybe they didn't try hard enough. Maybe they need all of God's horses and all of God's men instead~ :iconkakapoplz:

I too thought it was an Easter-themed piece at first. Funny how our work can read as something far from our original intentions.

I'm looking for photos or drawings where you can see the flying bird here in this posture, but from the behind so you its back instead. Do you know what this posture is called or any keywords? It's for a tattoo and I can't find any pictures!

Not that I'm a religious fanatic, but I notice it very relatable with the ascension of Jesus Christ. Is that how you got inspired to do this artwork? Very beautiful by the way.

I first thought these were sparrows, So much for that, yet the one in the air reminds me of a king like stance or a killie killie pose. Even as simple and rough texture this image is it still has very wide dynamic textures and looks nice to this more set impressionistic oil paintings. :) :thumbsup:
