The old Busstop by drachenmagier The old Busstop by drachenmagier
Just because one does not notice something or someone, does not mean it's not there. :)




Finally started to work with acrylics for real instead of just using it for white effects. I can only say: Fun to work with! 8D While coloring I was mostly listening to the OST of Infinite Undiscovery. www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8Co13…

Acrylics and Markers on A3-Mixed Media Paper.


and one day I will get the hang of viewpoints and correct that shield. d:

I just have to write a Critique O___O
This picture caught me !
I thought its Digital at first, but then read that its Traditional, amazing !!

5 Stars for Vision: The Atmosphere is pretty damn amazing, it kinda dark and creppy on the one hand and extremly full of lights on the other hand :)

5 Stars for Originality : Do I really need to explain why ?
Ok, ill do it anyway ;D
The Idea is amazing,and I love how it turned out. These creatures are amazing...just breathtaking...

5 Stars for Technique: Like I said before, this looks Digital work to me, thats why it is just more amazing that its Traditional in real xd
The Details( Feathers,cobbles,Lights...) are just amazingly worked out, I love how the lights and Shadows are set.Perfect use of Markers and Acrylic !

5 Stars for Impact: The Impact is just breathtaking, it really would be scary to have such creatures around you while your waiting^^
But Iam still amazed from the Idea and its great to see it the other way around, to see the creatures instead of the humans :D

A Masterpiece, I cant stop looking at it !

Great work, keep it up ;)

This piece immediately caught my eye while I was browsing. It is an interesting blend of light and dark, and I am intrigued by the choice of having the creatures in full form, while the humans around them are merely a ghost-like impression of a proper form.
I also like the buildings in the background: using more castle-like shapes instead of more modern architecture adds to the fantasy feel of the piece.

I only gave three and a half stars for originality because I have seen some images and films with this same idea, but you still managed to pull it off in a new way.

I do have to wonder what these creatures are looking at over to the right. Possibly the bus? Well, either way, it is a beautifully done piece, especially considering it was done in a medium you are unaccustomed to. Congratulations!

This is worthy to be in some type of novel (said the comic-though books in general, lover).

Thanks! :D I think the closest thing would be the books by Kate Griffin - her Madness Of Angels describes what I wanted to draw. ^^ Less owls, more other magic, but still lots of fantastic urban magic.

This drawing is amazing! I love the beautiful drawn creatures! I love the effect of the streetlamp on the light and shadows. Most of all i love the message it communicates!

When I saw this I thought its kind of a cool. Like how, sometimes i think, what if their are strange creatures, they just cant be seen by the human eye (kind of like unicorns). Its like,in the picture,you are showing that they are among us, but not really with us.

I don’t know, thats just what i thought.

Anyway, this is truly stunning. Excellent work.

I'm not sure I know what you mean, but I'm dislike the idea of "using this kind of animal". I drew my own version of the city and while I haven't given them names, it does not mean they are free to take and recreate. :/

Not like I can stop you from doing whatever you want to. But it would be appreciated if you accept that other people don't just create something so you can just pick it up and recreate them. Especially if their creation has meaning to them. And those creatures in this drawings hold a lot of meaning for me.

Getting inspired by an idea and just copying the idea are two VERY different things.

Plus, I find it rather rude that you're writing Russian in a thread and not providing me with a translation, even after I said that I don't understand what you wrote. Makes me even less keen on "sharing" what I hold dear.

Really? 8D Thank you very much! That drawing really goes around the world, it seems! :D
And yep, all traditional. ^^ Very slightly different from the original, since it's nearly impossible to scan it without having that happen, but beside that all done by pen and brush. ^^

Wow. It's an amazing piece! It reminds me of the kind of creepy amazing creatures and spirits of Hayao Miyazaki.  
It's one of my favourite for sure.

Indeed so! I prefer to think that the owlbirds are there the most of all. :)
