Take the soul of me by Mezamero Take the soul of me by Mezamero
"Come blackbird and take my soul away
You won't keep your vagabond at bay!
Your fortress hangs heavy in the tree:
Come blackbird and take the soul of me away...
Who will listen into your lore?
Will the echo follow your call?
Who will listen while you're waiting by the wooden door?..."

©Louisa John-Krol – Blackbird

Lovely, the eyes seem a bit bright to me but i think i would like to see a tiny bit of glow to add to the feel , it is almost too stark in comparison or perhaps i am relating it to fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201… My nerdy backlogged memories

Никогда не писал комментариев на DA, но это случай исключение. Великолепный арт который ещё очень долго будет украшать мой рабочий стол и аву в ВК, давно мне ничего настолько не нравилось. Были бы деньги, не пожалел бы их отдать на фотообои с этим артом, а быть может когда-нибудь так и поступлю.

Love the shapes, you've made me aware that one could start from a dark image then add figures via light as opposed to the other way around. (even though that wasn't applied here)

Lovely atmosphere!


[if critique wanted]
The pigeon silhouette is pretty distraction NOT an blackbird. (Pigeons: not so sinister.) If you've got a few minutes, I'd recommend editing the birds to be actual blackbirds-- the painting would look more unique and deliberate, instead of like a random scattering of bird-like shapes. Also, just like people, birds have really distinct body language in their poses-- right now you've got a really random flock of birds not paying much attention to the subject at the center of the painting. Try doing some fast sketches to test bird poses, either threatening or about to fly or tense or *something*. Right now it's a bit like they're random leaf silhouettes, just some ideas used in composition, not actual creatures, and not quick painterly-vague enough to be pure background elements.
[/if critique wanted]

Try watching Hitchcock's "The Birds" with this in mind: what should be a horror film about scary alien birds turns really campy when you notice that a) half the attacking birds are actually dead, and mounted on sticks and b) the rest of the birds in the film are falling asleep / preening their butts when they're supposed to be looming threateningly.
