Edit: 'Greybird' is no longer a collaboration, but a solo project of mine. :>
Finally done with this! School made me put my art off so much, haha.
This is a poster-style illustration for ‘Greybird’, the novel I’m writing along with *Kocoa. In a nutshell, it’s the story of a shut-in woman in 1904 London, who encounters the bereaved ghost of an actor—and both find themselves thrown into turmoil by the consequences of their relationship, both of this world and the next.
I took a different approach with the lines and coloring in this illustration (pencil lines with digital color), and definitely enjoyed doing some manual texture work and painting in finer details on the feathers. The coloring helped to enhance the spooky ‘feel’ of the story I was trying to portray, and I might try to do more pictures this way in the future.
(If you’re wondering, the woman is Lorna and the bird-monster behind her is Carmori—just in a form you might not recognize!)
I hope you enjoy it!
Lorna belongs to *Kocoa
