Crows by MichaelBrack Crows by MichaelBrack
Commission for *nuancecm on the "crow" theme. I came up with this image, where the crows could be seen as the souls of those which were hanged there... Or maybe it's just some random crows :P

Pen & ink, tubular pen, washed ink on paper (13cm x 19cm).

This is just amazing. I do skyrim mods and was wondering if I could use this picture (giving you full credit and a link from the mod page to your deviant art page.) It fits the Theme perfectly.

random question: is this an Intaglio or Lithography print by chance or just regular paper?
It looks like a print. :)

Hey, *super-sheep would you mind if I used this picture for the cover of a book I'm writing?

It depends, if the book will be published and sold, there are reproduction rights to pay... If you're just making it for your friends and family, you can use it.

the ancients believed that when a person died, a crow would come and carry their soul to the next life, heaven or hell.

so maybe the crows symbolize how many souls had passed there.
or maybe the ghosts of the people that were are still there and the crows are waiting until the restless spirits are ready to leave.

Very very nice. I love the perspective, and the whole mood of the picture. The idea of the crows representing those who were hung at the gallows in sinister and creative...the kind of idea that makes you want to make a story in your mind about it.

It takes a lot to creep me even a little, so you must be a genius, because I was scared out of my mind when I first saw this.
