Black Bird
Somewhere in the black void of space was a small vibrant world orbiting a star. It was a very tranquil place filled with stunning various colored animals and plants. At first the only black thing in the world was a round meteorite that had fallen from space recently, turning the land around it a dark black colour with the shockwave caused by its hard landing. After a year of sitting by itself doing nothing a small black bird no bigger than a robin broke out and began feeding off the plants around it, causing them to turn black and die in seconds.
After a month the bird was now the size of a chicken, pecking bugs and small creatures off the ground now as well as plants. It left black footprints where it had been before; nothing grew around these as though the bird was somehow poisoning the earth.
A second month went by. Larger animals like the various deer now ran off in fear every time it became apparent that the black bird was nearby them, ready and waiting to

Black Bird



Somewhere in the black void of space was a small vibrant world orbiting a star. It was a very tranquil place filled with stunning various colored animals and plants. At first the only black thing in the world was a round meteorite that had fallen from space recently, turning the land around it a dark black colour with the shockwave caused by its hard landing. After a year of sitting by itself doing nothing a small black bird no bigger than a robin broke out and began feeding off the plants around it, causing them to turn black and die in seconds.

After a month the bird was now the size of a chicken, pecking bugs and small creatures off the ground now as well as plants. It left black footprints where it had been before; nothing grew around these as though the bird was somehow poisoning the earth.

A second month went by. Larger animals like the various deer now ran off in fear every time it became apparent that the black bird was nearby them, ready and waiting to catch one. It had grown to be horse sized now and could outpace all but the fastest prey on the world's rolling grassy plains, for every animal whose life it took to feed upon the bird announced the moment with an evil screeching song before dismembering it's catch and swallowing every last scrap that it could down it's black throat. Any leftovers that had been left uneaten where tainted with black bite marks that made ill anything that tried to scavenge the remains, even flies kept well away.

The black bird carried on its reign of terror on the planet, making extinct the deer it had been subsisting off and corrupting large areas of what where once plains with darkness. Having gained the size and strength to fly now it ran at top speed and leapt into the air off the top of a hill. As it flew over the ocean to find new hunting grounds a black fog spread in its wake that filled the air. When it saw the shore it cried loudly to announce its arrival and started flying down, catching and carrying off the local wildlife in its sharp black talons.





It only took a few weeks before the darkness of the sky had caused the death of all the plants on the planet, followed by all the animals save for the black bird itself who now soared in the air alone on wings the size of an airliner. But it was still hungry for more, the only thing left for it to consume was the planet itself.

The black bird landed in what used to be the north pole of the planet and began to flap its wings fast enough to start a great storm. When this got to the right size the bird seemed to will it to gather tightly around it in a ball, compressing the air to the point it became so hot as to undergo nuclear fusion.

In a instant there was an enormous flash and explosion that shook the planet to the core, cracking it in the process. The black bird arose from the fireball glowing with pure energy and flew away into the blackness of space as a phoenix. It had in effect been reborn from the sacrifice of the world it had come to end. Whether it was to repeat the process on another world remained unknown as it flew away into the blackness of deep space.

Rather bad work made solely to pass GCSE English Language with (yes I passed before anyone asks) Inspired mainly from a old artwork of a bird I did years ago.

I also had to salvage the copy I had and remove a lot of stupid vulgar words and drug references added to it because someone in the class thought it would be fun to sabotage my coursework when I left the PC briefly, I hope I have fixed all the damage.

I used to write things more often, managing a novella once, but my skill has gone largely.

Its technically called Black Bird but I'm giving it the banal title above as lots of these things get made each exam season where someone has to write work inspired by a colour, most chose happy colours like blue and green but I went with black because it sounded more doom and gloomy.

I can't really draw stuff when I have craptons of engineering assignments to do and have to play the game of pulling various numbers from component datasheets which is not easy when some are from obscure or dead companies or crappily scanned in.

If I have to see another power MOSFET again today I am going to just shut off, not that the vast majority here know what those are without googling.
Eanraig in cave
Made for Wannabe-Warrior  as part of:iconanthro-fantasy-club: 's summer art exchange 2016 of their werewolf character Eanraig. They wanted some sort of natural background.

I had very little time again (dragged off on holiday and internet issues compounded things ) to finish and I know I could have done better.

Without having the fan going next to me.

Also I really badly want to start on the steampunk-esque stuff I have been planning to paint. A sort of series where things will be distinctly coloured and themed for good, evil and grey in betweens. It will look like there is meant to be a novel to detail the artwork it will involve but there will not be one because I have not the time for writing. It may also involve cross sections of things since I have had engineering drawing techniques burnt into me for a while now.

It will be interesting to actually do fantasy things again. I might start with something phoenix like because according to DA the last one I did was my most popular picture in terms of faves and comments (maybe due to plugging it the the thumbshares forum)

Note that if I burn out on this project of mine I will upload the results as lineart rather than finished paintings.

I have been doing proper showable art since I was 15 and mostly do digital art of fantasy things but have made inroads into real animals and humans.

I don't bother responding to faves, however I do respond to watches.

If you can still access your FA account to contact me there try that way.

Did you hit send a great deal recently to try and make the notes go? Because via googling I found that doing that can set off some kind of anti spam system.
