221 Murder of Crows
Bye Bye Birdie

Did you know a flock of crows can be known as a “murder” of crows?
After seeing an old photo for a failed invention to protect faces from snowstorms (see inspiration), this jumped into mind.
Crows really shouldn’t be scary, but they are. I wanted to have some kind of devil-like character standing in plain sight while everyone walks around unaware. I’m not sure if that comes across too well, but I like the overall effect.
The background people were inspired by the artwork ofGerhard Richter (I know, a real artist!) who often paints photo-style flaws into his pictures. Hopefully giving it that movement and an additional ghost-like feeling.
The naked crow girl? Hell, that’s just what I wanted to draw, so I did.
