I'm a sucker for detail at times, and that's where this piece shines...well, sheds feathers on the floor...
It's not just the beautiful details on the bird - carefully hand-painted - literally, digitally or otherwise - which brings out the texture of the feathers to quite a certain extent - but the wonderful choice of colour which brightens the white background and blossom. I'd love to see this artist move away from pattern work though and produce more detail pieces, because they way the bring out the textures would have brilliant applications to character art .
It's the sort of detail you find to artwork for 3D and 4D animation - whilst at the same time in this piece it maintains a sense of painting - a subtle distortion which oddly enough brings out more character.
