I love the drawing, and I am a sucker for black and white drawings, but if you are not coloring it, I would suggest varying the line weights to help establish where you want the eye to travel through the composition!
Very cute piece! If you DO paint it, it will be awesome too!
let me clarify that... since there is some variance in the line weights... I still think some of the lines are a bit too thin without color... and I want to see the mushrooms and flower a but more! I really really love your drawing style! Its really exciting to see a piece uncolored!
Me encanta The Siesta tal y como esta, pero sabiendo que tu haces magia con los colores y si quieres mi opinion te dire: por que no lo dejas asi y haces otro para ponerle color, y así tiene dos obras magnificas. bellas bellas Saludos Mariqui
I appear to be the only one that thinks the bird looks dead. Even when I try to imagine him sleeping I just see a dead bird. Like he has ceased to be, expired, gone to meet his Maker...stone dead. Sorry -- that's what I see.
Re: coloring, I say go for it. I always think your pieces look done when you've completed the outline and then I'm totally blown away when you color them.
Maybe if you have him laying on his side with his little wings tucked under his chin or something. He does look dead..that's the first thing I thought...sorry.Oh, I know, what about a little pillow under his head too?
Oh man I love your work, and this is great, but I have to admit also, that at first glance I thought the little guy was belly up so to speak, that is 'mort'. But I still think it's great, and worth some colour. Lovely :)
First look - I thought it was a dead bird. I hv generally seen dead birds in this position. Sleeping birds - never upside down. As always, great drawing. I love your blog and visit it daily. I am a fan of yours, and am always inspired by you.
