Edit 2015: I think this is one of the only pieces from so long ago that I'm still fond of. Maybe it was just a happy time.

Fuck it. I'm done with this.


Hope it isn't an eye-sore, I had to struggle with the color scheme for a long time before I finally settled with what you see here, and I'm still uncertain that it looks good, but I'm not going to struggle with it anymore (Wish I didn't keep driving myself to this point with art. Sucks the fun out of it :/ ). Working with browns was a goddamn challenge for me :iconheaddeskplz: Huurghuasdusurkjasf;.....


Otherwise, I wanted to do something that had both more background and main subjects. Stuff to make the picture more interesting as a whole. Hope I succeeded.




One of those heads is a cross-dresser...

I escecially love a contrast between her nice dress (a bit ragged but still really nice) and her bare feet. Stunning!

Awesome work. The line work (in the tree especially), great texture, and the monochromatic brown colours make the whites pop.

Genderqueer goose! :heart:

This looks amazing. Any grief it gave you was totally worth it. Seriously: it's very quirky and the color scheme is perfect and really captures that little instant of the girl's surprise and curiosity as she notices something odd about the goose on her way down. Great work.

I'm very relieved to hear that! I was fretting for a while after I posted, wondering if I really made an awful decision with the color scheme and the line work. I'm happy to see even if it wasn't the best, a lot of people seem to really like it all the same :)

Thanks very much for your comment and thoughts, I really appreciate it!

This is ASTOUNDING to say the least!
I love the dark feel, quirky bird character, her dress, her hair, the stone wall, the trees, ALL OF IT!:heart::heart::heart:
It give me a bit of an Alice in Wonderland feel. Just on how random it is. You could create a story out of this if you wanted. You should be really proud. ^^

Why thank you very much!

It's interesting that more than one person has pointed that out xD I guess I just like that obscure whimsy that is often associated with Alice in Wonderland.

Thanks again, your comment was really sweet :heart:

The two headed bird kinda related to the Cheshire cat in my eyes. Just there, with a bit of useful information. Ann all out quirky character. :)
I'm also really liking the rest of your artwork! ^^

Yay! It's done! I've been looking forward to this picture ever since you showed it to me!

I love the coloring! I really didn't expect brown, but it worked out great! It's a different spin that really works! And I like the background too! you make awesome trees! x3

Omigosh, I was wondering if that bird was one with two heads or not, I couldn't tell in the sketch! Are they married. or just siblings? XD or both!?! XDD

Steampunk.... and.... so... much... depth... and the color scheeeeemmmeee <33333333333333

I want this as like a poster.. or a door painting... GOD I want your talent sometimes XD

okay, actual critique now: Brown/sepia/gold = win. Its a simplistic color scheme that perfectly fits Victorian scenes. Her dress is fantastic and MARKED UP. I love the detail in imperfection! The line-element shading is gorgeous ESPECIALLY ON THOSE STONES. Must have taken forever!!!! The tree in the background.. and the illusion of depth with the different colors is well done though it might deserve a tiny bit more darker brown shading at its base, though the lines make it have shading anyway. I love how it looks regardless. Then that bird.... that bird is unique. I like how 'Alice in Victorian Wonderland' it is. Her hair is hopelessly detailed. I commend you. I cannot make it look blown, in disarray yet NEAT. the ONLY thing I see at all awkward... is her foot towards the camera (and maybe that her skin is unshaded, but its kinda attractive really). and I wouldnt know the first thing of what to change on that... *dies of love* Yes. this is my favorite of all of your pieces now.

XDD My goodness! Wow, it's astounding to hear that you enjoy this piece so, and it makes all the time put into it very, VERY worth it! (And believe you me, there was a lot of time)

I appreciate all that you have to say, it makes me so happy to see people observing my work that closely xD On the foot bit real quick, whenever I attempt to draw bare feet I try to make them somehow interesting, and in this case the attempt was that her toes were kinda splayed as she was stepping down. Probably a wrong move on my part considering the picture, but I'll keep it in mind again for next time. As tedious as this was, I'm insane enough for there to be a next time xD

I must say again that it is always a joy to read what you have to say, always helpful too (It's part of why I started shading with lines) Thank you very much for all your kind words and suggestions and again, I'm very pleased to hear that you're so fond of this.
