The Peacock King by cypherx The Peacock King by cypherx
Prolonged exposure has turned us cancerous
----------------------------------------------------------
Hussar inspired... might even consider it a Hussar study.

wanted to do an albino-peacock type deal, so I did.

couldn't really be a peacock queen... everyone knows the male birdies are the pretty ones.

Oh, I remember when I saw this a few years back! It's still neater than hell. For some reason, I want to think 'the peacock king' is from the 1700's (all them white feathers= the freakiest powdered wig) and is one meanass of a dictator. I don't know if that's what your were going for, but it's got that feel.

and it's amazing.

Cooly original. I havent been here to visit lately due to a heart attack and several strokes during emergency triple by pass surgery........but you are still one of my favorite (yet cynical) artists. Good to see you are still at it....jss (jack)
I am getting well after nearly three years, I couldnt talk, write, draw or do a lot of things that come natural...but in the last three weeks I am finally able to SCULPT!!!! I'll have my first commish, hopefully, in the next week or two. And I can talk now(painful for some people) but I'll be confined to my power chair from now on. Rawk onward my friend, J the Shifter of Shape.......:-)

My dad said when he was a boy, one of his neighbors had a peacock who would get up at the crack of dawn and scream its little lungs out, wake up all the neighbors... then one day it stopped. :< sad story the way he told it.

I really appreciate how you resisted the cliche of drawing a woman with a bunch of peacocks. What a relief! @_@ Thanks for making that realization and for gracing us all with your presence. C:

Stunning. :3 Your work is absolutely mesmerizing. Although her right hand pointer finger looks short? It almost looks like her fingers stick to her face. And the bird in her hair is very detailed. Very nice work.

The model in my life drawing class pulled a similar pose like this and I got frustrated because it was difficult to do the gesture drawing :P
You pulled this off nicely, I love the use of colours and for me, gives mixed emotions.
