Those Damn Swallows by psychohazard Those Damn Swallows by psychohazard
Everyone's racing to fill up their throats.*

-----
First, as far as accuracy goes, the suckers are badly depicted swallows, but I was more focused on technique than anything. There's bits cropped off, as well as lost fluffy detail in the lowerleft blackness (argh). Otherwise, holy crap, the learning curve here is humongous. PlusIt's obnoxious to only be able to work on something a single hour every day.

24"x26" Oil on canvas, taking up most of February.

Oh snap OH SNAP. From the sheer amount of cleanliness and control one could swear this was digital. Sweetarse foreshortening on those feathery textures, and props for the weirdly cute execution of the concept too.
