Strange Appetites by meluseena Strange Appetites by meluseena
Here's a little bird, stuffed with orange. It had its own strange appetite, and now it's about to be someone else's meal.

It'd been a long while since I stayed up late past my work-time to play with my own paintings.

Soon I'll have some illo works to share, but they probably should go to print first before I do!

This is gorgeous. I love the different textures, from the photo to the bright red.

It reminds me of Neil Gaiman's story "Sunbird"
I'm curious about whether you were illustrating this, because it fits that story perfectly...

I love the textures, but most of all the diagonal red lines. They're dynamic, but at the same time they're softly floating into the distance. Beautiful job on the feathers, too.

I've never heard of that story! This was actually made for a friend who was hungry and said she fancied some bird stuffed with orange..

I'll go and read the story now though :)

Oh, this is so beautiful. I love the textures, and I love the combination of muted neutral tones with the bright oranges and reds. Lovely!

Perfectly logical! What an animal eats affects the flavor of its flesh; some gourmands feed blueberries to chickens!:D
