Peacock

This series of Bird drawings were inspired by the fable "the peacock and the crane" by Aesop.

A Peacock, spreading its gorgeous tail, mocked a Crane that passed by, ridiculing the ashen hue of its plumage, and saying: "I am robed like a king, in gold and purple, and all the colors of the rainbow; while you have not a bit of color on your wings." "True," replied the Crane, "but I soar to the heights of heaven, and lift up my voice to the stars, while you walk below, like a cock, among the birds of the dunghill."


It's kind of rare that I didn't make a story behind it on my own for my original art, but I really love the thought behind this fable. So I decided to torture myself to draw feathers. Though this dress don't have a lot of feathers, the colors matching almost killed me.

I really loved how every bird has their assess and their defects, much to every human. It's really important to see both side of things and look for the best in others. A peacock, though it is absolutely breathtaking, can never fly like a crane does, but a crane will never have the feathers as beautiful as a peacock.

I guess you know which bird is coming up next XD!

If you want to cosplay this... Good luck...
but if u r really serious about it, i will draw the dress design for the back. *shivers at the thought.*

Took me 50+ hours for this drawing.

This will be sold as a print at my conventions ^^. if you want a copy and cannot go to cons that i go to, send me a note ^^.

This is my favorite and I love peacocks! I was thinking though that it would look even better if you made her hair brown or even gold, you already have hints of both in there so bring 'em out. Would love to see it re-done that way!
