Light and Shadow by Schiraki Light and Shadow by Schiraki
So, this was a request for a good friend. She wanted a crow and a dove and gave me free hand on the rest. Thats what it turned out. I am nearly satisfied with it, but there are still some things that realy annoy me.

I did this with Aquarell-pencils on Aquarell-paper. The Highlights are done with Acryl.


EDIT: DD? o.O Okaaay...I have to sit down first. I cant believe it...THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The suggestor writes, "The details in Light and Shadow are just AMAZING, the colors as well. I also love the fact that the artist paid attention to the differences between a dove's eyes and beak and a crow's." Enjoy this exquisite rendering by *schabi!

This is so cool; I thought I was the only one to see the connection. I had a dream once wherein two flocks, one of each bird, came together, the crows joining with the doves to form pairs and landing on the tree branches below. I looked up the symbolism for the two birds. To sum it up briefly, I found death and war for the crow, love and peace for the dove. They really do seem to symbolize darkness and light, but they came together, as in here, as in with the Yin and Yang. And it is beautifully executed, by the way. ^^

Ich bin gerade ganz fertig.... ;_;
Hab erst letztes Jahr ein ähnliches Bild gemalt.
Es sieht zwar völlig anders aus und ist auch ne ACEO Karte
aber du musst mir glauben das ich nicht abgekupfert habe ;_;
Sehe das Bild hier heute zum ersten mal.

Es ist großartig geworden! :)

Deswegen musst du doch nicht fertig sein. Es ist ja immerhin kein unglaublich seltenes und originelles Thema. ;)
Es gibt soooooo viele ähnliche Sachen und ich denke so gut wie keiner hat beim anderen geklaut. Ich gelobe auch hoch und heilig das bei dir nicht gemacht zu haben. ^^"

da hast du recht es gibt ja allgemein nichts was es nicht schon gibt.
Selbst wenn man davon überzeugt ist...XD
Trotzdem wollte ich auch nicht das jemand kommt und dumme Sprüche macht.
Weder bei mir noch bei dir. Aber dein Bild war ehr da XD.

das passiert mir auch immer wieder das meine besucher meinen Geschnack nicht teilen.
Kunst ist Geschmackssache und geht ihren eigenen Weg.
Dein Drachenskull ist auch gut, aber ich glaube du bist viel besser, oder es gibt mehr her wenn du den stift in die Hand nimmst. Da liegt dein Talent.
