Rook by Solinni Rook by Solinni
Corvus frugilegus

I remeber thinking as a kid that Rooks looked really scary.

Back to the Russian physics book. o/ Though I didn't remember how frustrating it is to paint on it since the pages are so thin.
Also I'm sorry I don't paint so often anymore, I'm still for some reason feeling annoyingly demotivated about painting. I want to paint really badly, but when I actually start I feel like I can't do anything. :/

It's probably just that you are demotivated by something.
Ignore it and push your self, but slowly. It's a big jurney to go around the world, but it's still made step by step :)
Your paintings are faboulous, don't you quit on your tallent :)

I know the feeling. There was a time when I plain stopped painting. But then I got a commission... and a work placement and there was no escaping. I've never tried painting on a page of a book! But I love the art that comes out of it. You're a great artist. *goes to look at all the other works in the gallery* :)

Handsome bird, and like the two other commenters said - looks very real and alive! It's almost as if I could reach through the screen and touch the rook. Amazing job. :clap:
