Re: SILLY HAT


I really like your style here, but I'm not sure what's going on. I can see that the white bird has the crest tied around his head...but is he another crow(just white)? I guess he's not a chicken, because his beak is really big. If he's a crow though, I think it either would've been more funny to keep him black (and still wearing the hat, possibly proudly) or to have a bucket of white paint (implying that he *wants* to be a chicken).

I really like the line weight and the style, I'm just confused about the oddball.

I'm not sure the concept really works, either. And that disembodied wing on the left is bugging me. But the style is undeniably good.

Thanks for your comments! The “white crow” is saying in Russian or Ukrainian (I believe) which is equivalent to “black sheep” in English. It is someone who acts or behaves differently from the others.
This white crow decided to show off and put on her new hat, and simply missed the fact that she looks silly in it. Sorry for the confusing concept, I guess it was just an excuse for me to draw crows for this derby. I like them a lot : )
