Oh wow. This really speaks to me. I used to have a lot of jackdaws where I lived earlier. Not ravens but close enough! (At least I think they're ravens? Are they?)
I loved watching them play with the wind, in that sense, this image is a bit nostalgic and fun... but it's more sad. I'm not sure why.
I think of guns for obvious reasons. And thank you for not drawing them with eyes!

Yeah jackdaws are in the same family as ravens. :D

It's certainly different, but it's turned out really well! I love the different poses of the black ravens, and the white dots make it look like whoever's watching is seeing their souls glowing through them.

I'm not sure how you feel about such things, but this would make a gorgeous tattoo.

I really like this piece. It feels so clean and so simple (though I know a lot of effort goes into making something appear that way).

And the lack of an eye for the main raven, plus the title with its reference to something lost, this piece definitely has a mystery about it.

But I love it like I love your other artwork. It's nice to see you flex your artistic muscles again, and I will be very interested to see if you continue to add this minimal style to your other, more detailed work.

^_^

I love this... in part because i find it strangely unsettling... it makes me feel on edge for some reason.

Love all the raven poses, and the white raven's face. Feels like he can see perfectly clearly even without eyes.

Mm. Anyway. <3

He certainly can. :)

But he might be a bit pissed off at not having any eyes.

I love this!!! Reminds me of the crows here in the South of the US...you'd have to have been watching them to notice, but we have fewer than we used to. I think it has to do with the bird flu or West Nile that went around. Was also supposed to affect the blue jays here, too...but not that I've noticed. I miss my crows visiting more often than they do now...

We have more ravens than ever, but they adapt REALLY well to the urban areas, particularly the new ones.

I wish we had more crows around here, but crows are pretty uncommon in Perth (resulting in almost all Perth people calling our ravens 'crows', which drives me nuts).

Our crows tend to do well in cities too...I think the pop. is temporarily down bc of disease, though.
Some parts of the US have ravens, I'm sure...maybe the Northeast? Out west, in, say, New Mexico, we
have Magpies, which are quite lovely and have the ecological niche of crows. This is quite a wonderful piece, my friend! Cheers!

It also reminds me of one of my current favourite bands - Shinedown. Their "Sound of Madness" album has a few ravens on the cover. So double awesomesauce points for you!

Different from your usual, but in a good way. I think it'd be better if there was more of a background color, but that's just me. =p
It reminds me of the story of how the raven got its feathers. (Or maybe it was a crow. I don't remember..) :D

Thank you. I thought about a background colour, or texture, but decided against it eventually. Everything I tried diluted the actual impact for me personally.

Amazing piece! I really do like the style - those crips, clear lines and the harsh contrast of "colors". It's bouth rater unique and, at the same time, reminding me of the tratidional totem-pictures of some Native American tribes - you know, the black, white and red thing...
What catches my interest most atm is the "blindness"(?) of the white raven! But maybe that's just because of the presentation I gave today (was about ethics and handicapped people and I mentioned the blind seer Teireisas ^^ That white raven does remind me of him! And I think that whole "blind seer"-role is something that suits Raven quite well ^^)
But all the small, black ravens are also gorgeous - you must have studied raven's flight a lot to capture all those poses :)
HAVE to add this to my raven-folder!

Ooo, the Teireisas thing, how interesting! I might have to go look his mythology up.

*nods* I have. All the poses were from a series of photos (I'm always taking photos) of a bachelor group of ravens in flight. So they're all real raven poses. If they're 'wrong,' it's because of me, not becauseo f them. Heh.

Heh, I'm glad if I provided some inspiration here :) Fair exchange ;)

And it's absolutely awesome that you studied the poses so closely! Talking of bachelor ravens: I really kinda miss the young ravens I used to watch last summer :( Of course it's only natural that they leave their parents territory, but I loved to watch these little rogues, flying over the forest in a wild, playful game of chase or raiding the cherry-tree of our neighbors :lol: Well, but it also makes me happy to see their parents - a very affectionate couple! - on a daily basis :) (I'm not sure if the social life of Australian ravens is the same as that of the ravens living here in my area: The couple leads a rather solitary life, enjoying only the company of each other - and their children as long as they are young) Taking photos sounds like SUCH a lovely idea - maybe I should do this as well. I am going to "follow the young ravens" soon and "leave the nest" of my parents - it would be good to take some 'memories' in form of photographs of the ravens with me ^^

This is a bit different than your normal work. Very nice. I have a soft spot for flat, graphic shaping. I really enjoy the business of it, yet it remains fairly static, not static, unified. I enjoy the little bit of colour, as well, especially the spot on the largest raven. Excellent job :)

It's a very flat, minimalistic piece for me (especially as I like to saturate things in full colour, so people can't tell what the original surface was, lol). But it just came through me, and had to be drawn.
