Talk to the Birds by melora Talk to the Birds by melora
She's trying to learn it's secrets.

I need to shake this stupid bird meme because it is really starting to irritate me. What shall I put in this empty space? Oh, I know, a bird. Next time, its dead birds. Then no birds. No more damned birds!

Apparently I can't really be bothered with backgrounds now. Mehhhhh. Maybe later I'll draw in some giant birds or something.

Birds are always the answer, don't feel like you have to stop! Lovelly shading - great textures, I thought it was traditional, or at least traditionally drawn.
Welliame Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2010

purplerebecca Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2007  Professional General Artist
So very creative and unique looking. Excellent!
apeMONK Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2007
I wouldn't complain so much about your bird kick, it seems to have spawned very high-quality stuff. Besides, not often do you see original, non-disney-like anthro art, not here on dA, and that is saying a lot about your creative quality in character design. It's funny because it seems as if the bird was mumbling something and the bird girl was like "what did you say?", hahaha. Nice clothing design, as well.
eeehhhhhhhhhhhh Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2007
OHH i love this :O

IllustrativeJack Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
very imaginative! the detail is definitely what makes this piece... substantial, perhaps? real?

yes, that's it.

great work!
AvalonStarlight Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
But but! I love birds! And you're really great at drawing them. You should keep it up! I like this pic, the concept is really intriguing. I also like her scraggely bird hair.
Jonnyro Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
Very nice piece.... and I just saw your gallery.... some very fine piece there.... (I'm a big fan of bird themes - Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and the way of the heron....) Anyway.... this was an interesting concept.... cool
megaloceros Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2007
Hey I saw this on conceptart for the chow ! I hope you win, yours was one of my favorites.
Skitterklat Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007
This is so cool! I love the touches of feathers in the girl's hair, and the toe protruding from the back of her boot, and all the hints of her gradual metamorphosis into a bird - makes me wonder, why the veil? Is she growing a beak too, but doesn't like the looks of it? XD

Anyway I also like the little touch of the bird's blank speech balloon.
yellowworm Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007   Artisan Crafter
very classy.
akvarko Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
you're amazing!
blackFirefly Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
I like it so much I can't find the words to express.
GhoulKing Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
All sorts of things to like here... The tangled hair, the talons sprouting from the boots, even the sparse spikes of grass. The empty bubble's a good idea, making it clear that the bird's speaking, but leaving the subject or even language mysterious. Thanks for sharing!
ChrisOneill Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
before I went fullveiw, I thought that stick was a hugh pipe, haha
really nice pic :D
DragonQueen15 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007
