The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by socar The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by socar
This drawing was going really well, and then a BIRD shat on it. The birdshit left a stain after I scraped it off, and I put too much ink on that area, trying to cover up the stain. I then overworked the whole area AROUND the stain, trying to make it match the area with the stain. Long story short, I ended up overworking the whole picture, to cover up one little bird stain. I said it the other day, and I'll say it again: SCREW YOU, BIRD!

It's an absolutely wonderful illustration of my favorite part of the Wind in the Willows. Your drawing suits the transcendence of that moment.

Don't feel bad about the dumb little bird! This is gorgeous! I wouldn't have noticed any odd patterning if you hadn't mentioned it--I think it looks just fine. :nod: I love the tiny animal characters on the right--is this a scene from Wind in the Willows? (I've never read it, I've just watched the Disney Mr. Toad, so I'm not sure... ^^;)

Gloriously complex, but simple in composition. Love it. Sorry about the bird.
