The North Star by alexandrabirchmore The North Star by alexandrabirchmore
This couldn't be more cliché if it were puking rainbow coloured bunnies :o

A picture that's been sitting in my WIP folder for over a year at least. One of those that's too good to delete, but not good enough for me to be particularly motivated to finish it.

Also, legal adult in two days, 18 hoorah!

I had a bird that looked just like that walkin around in one of my pastures but they look way better in a painting

This is magnificent as well. It looks like it would be the exact counterpart of your "Dark Horse II" picture. I love your shading and how easily you're able to create an illusion of movement and emotion into your draings. And the colours are magical as well as the motive itself and the whole arrangement - everything is just about perfect in here...

True, this is very cliché. But the breed of bird makes it slightly more original. Also I love how their wings are blurry because it gives the picture sort of an action-shot photograph look.
Very neat style. :)

I love the painterly style of this, and the slightly "unfinished" look, which is much more difficult to achieve than it would seem ;) I'd say the subject is cliché, but your way of painting makes it a great piece of art. Great job!

I love the birds!! I agree with what someone else said, they're not doves or crows... yay for the unsung bird types!

this is easily my favourite piece of yours hands down. I love the pinking on his face. And just all of it really. If you painted this traditionally, you would become my actual hero.

I did consider using doves, but bah, they're so over used they almost look funny now :giggle:

Thankyou!! :glomp: I should paint more traditional really, but I hate cleaning up after myself, and I only really like using oils, which makes for a bad combination :o
