Child humming by chriskoehler Child humming by chriskoehler
Another piece from Devotion. This started out as a joke where i said i was going to draw a child spitting out a bird. In the end, i thought it would be cool like a child humming. I also tried using more hatching and shading than before. I am still limited by my brush control, but it is getting a little tighter. Let me know what you think!

Child humming by ~chriskoehler is crosshatching at one of its finest, its virtuosity accentuated furthermore by a singular yet sophisticated colour scheme. Brilliant. ( Suggested by freekmunkee and Featured by snowmask )

Splendid! When I was young I was told a myth about back in ancient times- when people sneezed they thought their soul was trying to escape so that is why they started saying 'God bless you' so the soul would return to the body. I thought of that story when I saw this.

The humming bird's head is a bit disconnected from the body, maybe make the body a bit more solid to go with the head? Great idea and texture!!
