Really awesome! Reminds me of the illustrations in old fantasy novels from the 30s-50s.

Awesome!

love it. I do wish I saw it a month earlier for a halloween costume Idea. though, if you don't read it, read Toriko( a manga),and check for the nitro. You'll be either pleasantly surprised, or mildly annoyed. still really good.

How sweet and scary at the same time. I'll believe he's gentle if you say so!

Wonderful perspective.

OOOOO, neat!:D I like the shading here, the detail are also very clear and intresting. The lack of color is neat too, it gives the pic unique, enigmatic quality. Very good, your a very imagentive and talented artist.

that's brilliant, dear.

The background, the crow creature and the idea itself.

One of the best ink works i've ever seen.

Oh my goodness! I'm in love with this! And you picked an excellent titel to go with this. It's surreal, original, and tou did such a wonderful job with the ink.

Actually I didn't think much about the title. I just looked at the picture when i was finished and thought "however creepy this giant crow might be, it's just picking some berries..." so this title came to my mind immediately. :)
Doing the background with ink was a real pain in the ass though... usually i mix ink with water to do such shadings but on this paper it looks much darker when it's still wet so it was a bit hard to find the proper rate of ink i had to add to the water. But it the end i guess it turned out nice so it was a really good experience.

I always like your creatures :). Are they going to be part of a story you intend to write, or in a comic or something of the sort ?
