So I've been sitting on a bunch of art because I haven't had time to keep up with comments. But I think I really should share more and not worry so much. I read every comment and I reply to them here and there whenever I can, thank you so much to everyone. =)

This is a piece I loved creating and it's special to me because it was my first piece of work as a cover artist. This is the cover of the December issue of Crossed Genres, a great little sci-fi/fantasy magazine run by terrific people. Please check them out here:

Crossed Genres.

The birds are Rainbow Lorikeets, they're such funky little things. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!

Time: 8.5 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS4, Wacom Intuos 4
Music: We are the People - Empire of the Sun

:heart:

Edit: Here's detail of the birds, just because I like his hat: [link]

This picture is featured on Face books group Fairies, dragons and other mythical creatures. It is so cool and the Rainbow Lorikeets are one of the best parts of the art. :+fav:
