Coming back from my trip to British Colombia, it's no wonder I have a stock pile of art that was inspired by the trip.

During the trip, I wanted to venture into making some art while challenging my design hand. So instead of dealing with NWP art via line thickness and weight, I wanted shape and color. My goal was to do a bunch of monochromatic images depicting some animals that came to mind (and were requested by some individuals).

Seen here, Raven in Blue.

It reminds me of when i do my "baarrrrr -baarrrrr - baarrrrr" thing at them. I get that same, eerie hollow look as if it wants to peck my brains out. And a feather-hand that's just like "Stop."

No, not your brains. Just your eyes.
Stop.

Thank you! This entire series was a focus on shape and color, rather then the main form line and it's line variation. It made for a fun work time!

This came out fabulous (it would make a great t-shirt!). Nice use of the shapes, and the blue tones make it feel like ice. Pretty.

These are both absolutely gorgeous. :D

I'd like to see an otter in green or yellow and a polar bear in white/silver. or other colors, it really doesn't matter. I'm just fond of those two.

Oh, goodness, no. I never meant for that to be 'OH YOU MUST DRAW THIS NOW' or anything of the sort. I'm sorry for that. It was just opinion and suggestion, not even that really. Just saying that I like otters. I was kinda talking to myself even. I type the way I speak and sometimes that comes out. I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable or angry. My bad.

No offense taken, I was just commenting casually. But I understand, no worries. :)

P.s. I also really like that you did the raven in blue. I don't think that many people would think of that. more common is purple or black for a raven. The blue is nice, though. much more serene.
