Magical Magpies by Toradh Magical Magpies by Toradh
A commission for my patron Isabella over at Patreon! (www.patreon.com/toradh)
She asked for magical magpies with a space-y background, and I happily obliged.

Drawing ink on Canson hot pressed satinated paper. References used. Of course. At least for the magpies.
Today’s music suggestion: Florence + the Machine – Spectrum

Hach, mehr Space! Und Elstern. Was für eine tolle Kombination!
Ich finde gerade in Deinen letzten Bildern die Farben richtig großartig, dabei mochte ich die davor schon sehr. Du hast gerade einen Lauf, oder? :)

Irgendwie kam zufällig immer eins zum anderen. Deswegen viel Geklekse und viel weiß gelassenes Papier. Da wird aber auch wieder was "normales" von mir kommen ;)

Deine Vögel haben immer sehr schöne und individuelle Gesichtsausdrücke und wirken dadurch lebendig. Respekt :)

Excellent! I really like the contrast between the blurriness of the space-y background, and the very clear lines of the magpies. "Two for joy..."

Neeein, ich hab nen Kommentar geschrieben, der aber nicht gespeichert wurde, weil ich Javascript nicht aktiviert hatte ...

Ich find das Bild wahnsinnig schön! Die Farben sind so leuchtend und lebendig. Und die Birbs sehen so gut aus. Die Posen, die Füßchen, die Bürzel - da stimmt alles.
Aus irgendeinem Grund hat es mir die grüne Schwanzfeder angetan. XD

Good birbs!!

How to have a promotion by Toradh ^^. I like the flying magpies. You catched their natural attitude. Your colors worked well together especially the bright yellow/green/red which give a nice contrast with the rest.

What do you mean by promotion?

Anyway, I’m glad you like the magpies! They were a great exercise. And the colours were fun to do!
