The Wisdom of the Poppy - Illustration board, ink, watercolours, with some iridescent gouache on the ravens (the flat scan didn't pick this up unfortunately) and gold metallic acrylic.
I love the color choice here, and the texture on the feathers is superb!
Thank you very much! I'd love to work with these colours again, it ended up being such a fun project.
I'm a sucker for the gift-giving animal images. Anthropormorphizing, but it's a nice taste of the natural romance seen in nature. You capture it so gracefully, and the colours only help to emphasize that romantic appeal.
I want to do more like this, but we'll see (it's mostly time/energy dependent, well more energy dependent than anything). But man it was good to draw ravens again. *sighs happily*
Amazing! Colours are beautiful!
I love it good job
