Peacock by aruarian-dancer Peacock by aruarian-dancer
"Peacock" Final version -- a digital drawing in Painter.

Male peacocks are so flamboyantly beautiful with their jewel tone feathers all over. This is the color version of "Peacock". My inspiration simply came from a single line in a book "... a peacock, silhouetted against a full moon".

I just did a Google search on these words and the closest I found was "a peacock silhouetted against the moon" from Faulkner's one-act play, The Marionettes.

seriously one of the best peacocks i've seen...its strange that such a beautiful animal can be so hard to represent artfully. You did this very well.

I think I favor this one simply because of the blues and greens. AND the sparkles. But they're both still gorgeous! XD

Hee. But you do! And they're exactly right... I love the little sparkle to add light to the darkness... it's the contrasts. :worship:
