Artist's Statement

In ancient mythology the crow is the guardian of ceremonial magic and healing.
Crows are the bringer of messages from the spiritual world, which otherwise would have to dwell beyond the realms of time and space.
"One who has the honor of having a Crow fly by her side, is an individual who has the Role of carrying souls lost in pain, denial, bitterness or ill intent, into the light of forgiveness and self-awareness."

Another collaborative work for my "Fantasio -girls" portfolio.
Model is the beautiful Seffana: Seffana
Reference Photograph from Pascal Abadie: abadie-photo
Brushes and painting technique acquired from DanLuVisiArt
Some Ornaments and stock resources i used for reference:
MouritsaDA-Stock, IanGray, sergeypoluse

The reference Photo from the model was the inspiration to this, while the main intention was to get close to my "wings of steel" kind of work Inspired by Michael Parkes and some Art Nouveau;
Wings of steel by fantasio
Which has set a new landmark for me combining graphical and flat surfaces and also 3 dimensional / Photomanipulation and digital painting to create a composition.
My main focus lies in the composition and flow of the image, the story with the crows has developed around this piece as a happy accident while working on it and it allowed a really uncommon pose and setting between repose and action.

Here some close ups, as per usual;-)
