a wild goose never... by mirjaT a wild goose never... by mirjaT
...laid a tame egg.


story of the drawing: it was a tattoo-commission for

story of the title: well...I was searching for something with "Raven" in it by the german word "Rabe"..now there is a german saying that goes "Raben zeugen keine Tauben" that was translated as "A wild goose never laid a tame egg."
which is more the translation of the meaning then the actual words...which would be "Ravens sire no doves"....
and that's how I choose titles....*sigh*

lovely lovely lovely work
it reminds me of this one time i was in art class working on some stupid perspective assignment with sandwiches. and my cokehead teacher says, "you should add an astronaut"

and i lost all respect for her, right there.
you make it work though.

The thing that kinds of... idk... iffs me is how the raven's neck just suddenly become those roots or twigs. It just seems sort of abrupt...
Other than that, great work!
