Birds of feather ... by Phoeline Birds of feather ... by Phoeline
.. sit together.

I was like: Okay, time to paint something for myself before I do another Art Trade.

I tried some freaky things with shading, it was fun ^^ I am ashamed of the cut down there, my terrible mistake.

Part of my 100 pictures challenge: Mischief Managed ([link])

Remember children, smoking and killing people is bad.

+~CHARCTER BLABBER~+
So this is my squad of proffessional killer birds. If you are on their list, you probably wouldn't last for more than 24 hours .. unless there is a huge sale on model fashion clothes, then Fiona can't go out to kill some freak of course.

So from left to right:
Sonja the Blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) - the nerd
Commander Daniel Keen the Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) - the leader
Fiona Starlight the European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster)- the persuader
and Allan Hammersmith the Common Raven (Corvus corax) - the bomberman

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Made by hand, inked, cleaned up in Photoshop and then coloured in Paint Tool SAI; Tablet Wacom Bamboo A5

All characters and art (c) me

PS: I support you shutting up about Tit jokes.

Oh wow! These all look simply amazing! :-o I especially like the geek's face. XD

I have a random question. I'm planning a big project and I'm looking for characters that I can use in the pictures and stories going along with it. So, I was wondering if you happen to have any 1-shot characters or just any old, unused/unwanted characters that you wouldn't mind adopting off? I would give you full credit as the original artist, of course. ^^

Exactly that!
Which one of these birds is pretty?
I have temporarily lost my cense of esthetics.

Phoeline Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Now I dunno if I should take it as that none of them is nice, thus you don't like it, or that all of them are nice, that you can't choose which one is the prettiest, thus like that you like it :(

Good news!
My cense of esthetics came back last night.
I have now decided that I like the computer-guy the best.
Also, I´m celebrating with cake. Everyone is invited. There will be plenty for to go around as no one knows where I live.

Sorry for the confusion!

Looks like a nice bunch... I think. (checks for price on head)

All the characters look the part from what I can tell. Not to mention your choice of birds is very indepth. I kind of expected something like a robin, blue jay, maybe a cardinal. Though your knowledge of birds is impressive.

Phoeline Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, they are very .. nice xD

Well I am a crazy bird-lover, I spent my childhood days reading guides to recognizing birds ;)
But of course I used a few references, after I though up the species.

I've always liked birds for purely estetic reasons. (except for those blasted seagulls)
Heh, I have a pair of bird anthro's myself, but it's just a 'round' red robin, and a redesigned crow witch.

Seagulls sound so cute xD

Yay! Anthro birds rock. Who are they? :) I mean like characters :3 What they do and so ..

Well, Debbie is a character in my novel "RailRoaders". She is a chubby robin who loves to cook. She has a tiny southern accent but is really just a big sweetheart.

Sin is the witch crow, though unlike normal witches she does her best to be stunning and experaments with clothing and broom designs. She likes 'dedicated' men (she actually falls in love with a french priest named Father Guilla Teen (PUNS))

Mě fascinuje, jak dokážeš zanthrovat ptáky o.o; Mi přijde, že to musí být poměrně obtížné.

He was supposed to be a crow, but then I realised hog ugly crow's beak is, so I altered him into a Common Raven. he has this 'beard' too, so it works perfectly :3

Thanks, glad you like it ^_^
