The Nest by KmyeChan The Nest by KmyeChan

Oh nostalgia!
I found this old, unfinished picture while sorting my drawings. A few of you may remember that I showed WIPs of this back in... 2009? That's how long it's been taking dust in my junk...!
I thought I would finish it, for old times sake. Let's make it a sort of tribute to those of you who have faithfully followed my work through all these years! :)

Limited edition fine art prints are available directly from me on my Etsy store.

Markers and acrylics on watercolor paper. Time taken: pretty much forever.

I've been a fan of your work for ages! Everything you do has such a wonderful, intriguing, even a little bit eerie feeling in it. Your art really fills me with awe! :aww:

Since this is "kind of a tribute" ( ;) ) I´ll say here: You´re one of the most unique artists I ever encountered - and I count Rembrandt and Monet in - and I am constantly inspired and moved by your imagination and your skill! Thank you for sharing on dA! I´m very glad I found you here!

Interesting. Why are the birds skeletal?

Creepiness? I liked the idea of monster birds trying to attack her small safe haven. :)

Interesting, it wouldn't have occurred to me, although I guess it's consistent with avian behaviour and making the skeletons does make it creepy. I wrote a short story a while back, in which a young woman is transformed into a bird-like creature, and is aided by Canadian Geese. Perhaps I need to revisit that idea :-)
If you'd like to know more, the beginning is here: [link] but the geese only appear in the third post.

I my gosh! Did you do the textures on the background traditionally, or with photoshop?

KmyeChan Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Traditionally, mostly with acrylics + masking fluid but a bit of watercolors and pencils as well. :)
