I have no idea what to do with this.

You're going to laugh at me, but I drew this because I saw a drawing of someone's hair - and it looked like a bird. I'm not kidding. This was inspired from someone's hair. I kinda at first wanted to draw a crow who's wings and tail feathers kinda melted into shadows and stringed along like hair, but I got a bit side-tracked.

Just a bit.

I ended up trying to balance a smooth swirly style with jagged edges, and failed pretty badly. I want to make this into a details piece with a background and not just a tribal design, but I have no idea where to start, so it's just going to sit here. Forever.

Going into scraps later. <3

Oh wow, this is so pretty. I wish my hair looked like this! I love all the swirliness you added and the lovely spiky wings. The bird itself is really pretty too. I also like the colours you used and how they fade in and out. It makes me want to ditch my red bangs for purple again.:blackrose:

I tried to paint inky quills and feathers in there with the colors, but I didn't use enough contrast, so you can't even see them unless you really strain your eyes. I go cross-eyed trying to see them. XD
I wish I could get my hair to swirl into ringlets like those. I need to find the original picture of hair I drew this from, too, as I forgot what I did with it or where it came from!
Aw, you shouldn't ditch your red bangs! Were they purple before?

I actually can see the inky quills, they are really pretty and I like the sort of subtle look to them. I often notice that on darker coloured birds you cannot see the individual feathers without really looking anyways. I wish I could get my hair into ringlets too... And yes my bangs were purple until about a month ago. I change their colour kind of often but purple is the old standby.:blackrose:

I doubt anyone would get this as a tattoo. That's be really odd and cool, though, to see this on someone!
