Moar turkey vultures!
Needed a break from commissions and paint something inky in watercolor so I made this. I like this guy so much he (or maybe she?) might become a gryphon character of mine or something.. I've always wanted one of those :3

Thanx for looking!

Art: Me
Reference: [link]
Used: Watercolor, black and white ink..and sum charcoal

EDIT: Wow a DD? That's one heck of a thing to wake up to! Thanx ^Astralseed for featuring it!! :happybounce:

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Andy

Excellent. Great texture, minimal colour, and blend of realism and stylization.

Some people think I'm weird because I really like Turkey Vultures! I used to live in San Jose, California, in the northeast part of the city, up near the foothills of the Mt. Hamilton Range, and we had TVs (as they were known) all over. I had a very exciting experience one day when driving south on Piedmont Road. To the east it's all open grazing land, to the west it's Suburbia. And this TV just came soaring down across the road, at eye level, about 6 feet in front of my car! WOW! It was a very good thing there were no other cars nearby!

Anyway, very cool TV image, congrats on the DD!

Nice colors. ^^ All black-and-white, but a splash of color on the face, like an actual turkey buzzard. Well done~ :3
