"The Sovereign Ruler of the Sea of Trees, Lord of Autumn Leaves, and friend of Magpies.
THIS IS DONE.
Over a year and a half in the making. Wow. This was started summer of 2012, while I was on Holiday in Normandy. I'm fascinated by birds, especially Corvids, and Europe is full of Magpies. Magpies, Magpies everywhere! I love those little demons, they're such a pain in the ass, but they're so beautiful! I started the sketch in June, inked the main figure (sans wings) within a day, coloured him (again, without wings) within the week, and then....he sat in my portfolio, sad and unfinished, for a year and a half.
It was just last night that around nine o'clock, I pulled him out, stared at him, and said "I am going to finish you".
And then I did.
Also, I'm a horrible sucker for sticking wings on anything non-avian, and this is proof enough.
This is the first time I've attempted a REAL background in -years-, but watercolours are awesome.
I'm going to be putting him up for auction in the art show at Further Confusion 2014 in a week and a half! He has been sealed, framed and looks beautiful, I kind of don't want to let him go.
