*EDIT (February 19, 2012); - Here's the finished version! I apologize it's a tad bit blurry- I had to take the picture with my phone being so I didn't have time to scan it. Hope you like it.<3 I still wanna stab the raven. |:
Drew this in a couple hours of a more fantasy-styled blue jay and raven, playing together. Why there is a random hat and why the raven has a collar is besides the point, haha. Yes, I know the wings and tail look nothing like a legitimate bird- this was intended. I mixed a bit of fantasy in here and wanted to make it look the way it does. I'm really, really pleased with how this came out considering birds really are no specialty of mine or anything, but I really do think it looks okay. The raven's beak bugs me a bit, but nyeh. What I want to do now is color it with chalk, then create a chalk/paint background; I'm not entirely sure how the background is going to go, but I'll figure something out. I'm also considering adding a poem of my own, but I'unno. My poetic muse has been dormant for months... We'll see how this picture goes; I want to finish it tonight since I have to finish it before Valentine's Day, so it may be completed before the day's end.
I like who both birds have wispy fantasy feathers, though the Bluejay's color is very appealing and the detail is easier to see in that one I believe. Looks as if the misses stole his hat though. Also the splatter paint affect was a very nice touch!
