Phantom by shilin Phantom by shilin

can't keep my mind off of you 
you've stolen every thought I own

- - -

There are a lot of barren trees in front of our building that have thin but dense branches with dangling, dead leafs, and in the bushes underneath lives a big community of sparrows that don't leave even in arctic temperatures. It's pretty lively there when the sun is out, but somehow I didn’t think about drawing it until now

So many little birds and details.  I love the added red which draw your eyes in toward his face, and the blurred effect of the trees behind him.  He could almost blend in to the scenery.

You have so much patience for creating these gorgeous pieces, it's unbelievable.  I've watched your artwork for many years before I came to dA and you're amazing.

If I remember correctly, Blackbird's scarf is red. The subtle red around her neck is a clever little detail.

The concept and execution are really something; my favorite part is the red winged bird under the tree-person's chin.

(They stay warm because the male sparrow insulates the nest with collected feathers. If the dad collects a lot he gets more kids because the mother knows they'll be warm. They might like that tree if it's one of those that makes cones with seeds they like, so they don't need to leave far from the house for food.)
