Corvus

For some reason recently I have not been able to stop drawing birds, I don’t know what it is about them, but they are just so nice to draw & doodle, I guess maybe it’s all the feathers, you can really lose yourself in it & all the little details. I dug out my Wacom tablet for this too, for the highlights & extra shading, I don’t use it anywhere near as much as I should & this piece has persuaded me to use it much more often.

Crows & other members of the Corvid family are some of my favourite birds, I love all the mythology & tales that they have inspired, they are often considered mystical & associated with a trickster spirit, which I think is quite fitting of them, as they are highly intelligent. Corvid’s are the only other species besides humans, great apes, dolphins, orcas & elephants that are capable of self-awareness & can recognise themselves in a mirror, even using it as a means to groom themselves!

    Your illustrations are so otherworldly and graphic. Very interesting work.
