Clever Enough To Be Crows

“If men had wings and bore black feathers,

Few of them would be clever enough to be crows.”

~ Rev. Henry Ward Beecher (1800) ~

I think Sherlock might be the exception though.



Phew, done. It was about time. I had to give my Drawing exam, where basically you’ve to choose a leading thread and draw a series of pictures based on it. Now. The crazy one it’s me, because I saw dozen of crappy drawings from  old schools, made in pencils, with obviously no leading thread at all. But no, NO, I can’t let myself, for once, choose something easy or maybe recycling something old and be done with a useless exam, NO. ANGELS! ANGELS WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF WINGS, BECAUSE EACH ANGEL REPRESENTS A DIFFERENT BIRD AND THEREFORE A DIFFERENT MEANING. WITH A PEN (actually, two). YEEEEH.

Frankly, I’ve no desire to keep them to myself since I’m pretty tired of seeing them around my desk (I spent 1/2 days on each drawing, I can’t feel my eyes anymore), so if anyone is interested I’m selling this whole series of angels (yes, lately I’d sell my own arms if they weren’t pretty useful after all) 

AKA: in-the-middle-of-the-work-I-found-myself-deadly-bored-YOU-DON’T-SAY-so-I-thought-to-make-a-special-angel -just-to-cheer-me-up. This drawing almost killed me. I kind of made a mistake about the measures…Fact is that I made this too little. So, yeah, the face is like a miniature since has the measures, more or less, of a €2 coin. 

FOR THIS PROJECT, THE CREDITS FOR THE POSES GOES TO: Mr Google, felixdeon@dA, justmeina@dA, cleanshvr@dA. If you happen to reconize a pose from a photo you made, please let me know. I have a lot of referenceS, but sadly most of them do not show the original source.

I’m selling this for €15, if you have any question or doubt, send me an ask!

In case you were interested, here is the whole series with all the prices
