Ballad for the Birds by TheSpyderQueen Ballad for the Birds by TheSpyderQueen
A traditional piece for my 9th grade Language Arts Teacher. She asked for a commission last year, but I could never get the image right. So I scrapped the original design, and created this. I am going to give it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it!

I am especially proud of this piece. Feedback is very much appreciated, as I want to improve.

This piece of art work is truly amazing! The way you drew the bird creatures is stunning and whimsical, yet also creepy in a good way. The girl playing guitar in the center brings a balance to this; I see it as the focal point. And another place I look instantly towards on this picture is the skeletal creature on the bottom right corner. The fact that it has no color is amazing. But what I think it's missing is maybe a little splash of color somewhere? You don't have to take this advice but I think it would be nice to color all the birds eyes some bright color and leave everything else how it is. But overall I cannot complain, this is definitely a lot better than anything I could ever dream of doing! Wonderful idea, wonderful drawing!
What do you think?

I love it! i think for the tails for the creatures laying down they should be up not down. Since it kinda of looks like a bunch of vines.

really? I wanted to go for the "dead-vine" look, so I mainly left them limp, except for the one.

thank you :)

Wow! This is freaky but I love it! The idea is creepy and the composition is lively. The lineart and shading is strong and bold ^^ I love how it looks like the eyes are glowing.
