The Crane Wife by driftwoodwolf The Crane Wife by driftwoodwolf
Not sure about the title. Honestly, I was not thinking about The Decemberists or the folk tale when I drew this. But it fits, I guess. Alternatives would be By the Lake of Stars or something like that. Tell me what you think.

I actually started this last year, I'd just been too lazy to finish it. The style was filched from a Korean manga/manhwa/whatever that I read a while ago. It started out okay but got annoying. I didn't really like how the faces were drawn but the dresses were spiffy.

Editing the image was not a pleasant experience. This came from the sketchbook that got wet, so there was this horrible wrinkle in the corner that screwed over the bottom-right section of the scan. It took this entire afternoon to Clone Stamp it out.

Haha, realistic cloth folds? What are you talking about?

Pencil. Full-view for detail on the nail guard.

I really love this pic. 1st is that it's drawn entirely with pencil, and with such precision, detail, and neat lining. 2nd is that not only is she a bird (birds are adorable, no exception) but a beautifully designed and thought out one too. 3rd is that this pic is awesome and beautiful, and she's so beautiful. I'd ask her to marry me if that wouldn't be such a weird thing to do.

I'd fav but mobile da is stupid.
