And this is when the fun started - I got a surgical scalpel, muahahah!
"Why is a raven like a writing desk?"
I've had this vision for ages, of black crow silhouettes flying off on red background, and I finally did it!
I loved the "Supernatural" title animation with crows, and now there's "Game of Thrones" with Bran's visions, Night's Watch and with ravens as messengers, which immediately brings to mind Huginn and Muninn, Odin's two ravens... and so on.
I think they are pretty and creepy at the same time, and that makes them awesome.
"Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use but also tool construction and meta-tool use. Crows are now considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals with an encephalization quotient approaching that of some apes."
I made this cutout from a4 (210 x 297 mm) black Canson paper, it's 90 or 120 gm2 I think, it's rather thick. I used a surgical scalpel with 10a blade.
