Akka by xHideFromTheSunx Akka by xHideFromTheSunx
"And the candles on cathedral walls
Chase the weak light under the saints eyes
Over you and your shattered words for the ones you lost
In your mourning you’re alone, so alone."


This halloween/samhain, don't forget to spare a thought for those who've passed.
This is my spirit guide, Akka.

Soundtrack to this pic:
"Cathedral Walls" by Swallow The Sun

and "Ruska" by Apocalyptica

(Watercolours and coloured pencils, smaller than A4 in size. Referenced my own photo of a raven.)

I have cards for sale with this design at :iconetsyplz: [link]

I can't stop you from posting this somewhere else, but have some respect - don't alter this in any way or claim that it's yours. Or I will find you. And I will be ANGRY.:dummy:

Thank you! Yes, I've related to Corvids from a young age, but never really embraced that until a spiritual friend told me about animal spirit guides. I'm not religious, but even as a metaphor Akka has helped me greatly:) Do you have one?
Thank you for the fav!

Indeed! When I look in their eyes I see their great intelligence and understanding of the world, I just wish they could share their knowledge with us, I believe the human race could learn a lot from them.
Fair enough:)

Stunning! Love your use of slightly lighter blues, purples, and greens rather than the darks I'm used to seeing on those feathers! :trophy: :D

Yea, I got good advice from some other cp artists before drawing a mostly "black" dog. I still used black, but, sparingly. It was more realistic and fun to use color. ;)
