- the raven - by Kanoe-v2 - the raven - by Kanoe-v2
Once again, this was an illustration 2 semesters ago... The assignment was to illustrate a scene from a fairytale I think and I ended up picking 'The Raven'. Not edgar allen poes raven though :p

originally this picture was very dark.. lots of blacks but I ended up pushing up the saturation and liked what resulted!

I don't think I have any words for how gorgeous this is. I love how the pinks were used in the picture just.... everywhere.

I think this may just be my favorite piece by you. It's...

Sometimes I try to challenge myself with a project out of my own head. But I don't ever have time to finish it. I guess I wish I had a due date on things so I would work harder. :p I'm working on improving actual anatomy as of late.

i guess I need to get into a school. XD

yea, I agree. Finding the motivation to work on something is very difficult -.-

Funny thing is, I tend to curse deadlines when I have them though haha

True. But every once in a while wouldn't be bad. Or I wanna see just how far I can get on a project in a given time frame. I have a huge multiple person picture in progress that I've been working on for MONTHS and I just haven't been able to finish it. Though when it is done I will be overjoyed. XD

I'm certain you will be, nothing like laboring over a piece to see the final result and wondering how the hell you managed to do that haha

I love how you framed it; esp. with swooshy bits at the bottom.

The colours are very nice as well; I like how you worked them in there, esp, the pink, whilst keeping the dark mood of the piece.

yea, technically that's where the book title would go :D or was it a poster... in any case I think some lettering is suppose to go there! But without the swooshyness it would have been lonely down there..

thanks ^^ And like flash, once you get over that first hump.. It's more enjoyable~

imo it's important to learn to paint/draw traditionally before going into digital.. which I actually did backwards so it messed me up for a while xD
