Black Swan by tincek-marincek Black Swan by tincek-marincek
New painting. I started to draw this few days ago, when I was at 9pm I started to doodle. I started to paint this as a joke...I never paint portraits on portrait format, so here I wanted to make something different. And wow...after a long time I drew completely with my style again. I guess I draw too many matte paintings :shifty: It's drawn with colors from beginning till the end. For some details on his mask I was inspired from my necklace and his face I repainted twice. Hahaha...I change my mind a lot. You'll be able to see this in my video. :la:

Something about him: His name is Ari and he can transform into a black swan. When he's in human form he usually wears black mask shaped as a swan's head and he have long black hair with white and gray locks. He's a silent person and he doesn't like company. He usually spend days, weeks, months, years... in his small house, far away from villages and people, near small lake. 

I also recorded progress from this painting. You can check it on our YouTube here.:la:

It's 1 hour and 46 minutes long.
