Those Damn Swallows by CBSorgeArtworks Those Damn Swallows by CBSorgeArtworks
Everyone's racing to fill up their throats.*

-----
First, as far as accuracy goes, the suckers are badly depicted swallows, but I was more focused on technique than anything. There's bits cropped off, as well as lost fluffy detail in the lowerleft blackness (argh). Otherwise, holy crap, the learning curve here is humongous. PlusIt's obnoxious to only be able to work on something a single hour every day.

24"x26" Oil on canvas, taking up most of February.

Oh snap OH SNAP. From the sheer amount of cleanliness and control one could swear this was digital. Sweetarse foreshortening on those feathery textures, and props for the weirdly cute execution of the concept too.

That's really cool. And creepy. Between this and HoC you have a knack for turning cute little birds into evil freaky monsters of doom.

Nice feathers. I want to see this in real life. :tears:

O_o I love you

SWALLOWS! I wish I could paint with oils, but I always over blend and make MUD XP I'm more of an acrylics person myself, but I hate that sometimes cause it dries too fast. YoU rAwK! *fave*

Yay!

Oils are lovely. And don't worry, it's taken me forever to figure them out even this much XD. Acrylics and I don't get along very well either, but I wish oils weren't so expense!

That single hour of work is the bane of my robot building. We're (I'm) working on The Big One now, the final project this year. My senior project. It's gonna kick ass. Unfortunately, that single hour every day makes it so that all I managed to do so far was cut out the basic platform and attach the caster. I'm working on attaching gearboxes to bike wheels now, which is absurdly difficult due to the spokes and such.

Nice birds. I like the feathers.

I'm used to working on a piece for several hours a day and getting it done in a week. By the time you get going time's up. You can't sink your teeth into it. My muse complains.
