This piece was one of my earliest combinations of gouache and ballpoint pen as a technique for bringing my special brand of bizarreness to life. The idea behind the technique shift was to try to bring more detail to my work, faster. Well, I got the former but not the latter ;) All of these works ended up taking me longer than I thought they would but, the results are amazing and speak for themselves.
My favourite part of this work? His hand holding the crow. I just love the way I was able to capture the fingers rolling forward. I think the 3D illusion of it is perfect :) Also, the crow is pretty stunning too! Gouache played a big role in making its feathers pop.
