The Raven | Graphite on paper

Death makes angels of us all

and gives us wings

where we had shoulders

smooth as raven´s claws

Dear maggie, do you mind doing a RBIII character playlist like the previous two playlists for the raven cycle? LOVE YOU.

Do you guys actually want this giant thing? Surely not.

I have a few asks in my inbox about if I have ever drawn Luke & Dee from the Books of Faerie, or Sean & Puck from the Scorpio Races.

I generally make art alongside whatever project I’m working on — here’s the Raven Boys, The Scorpio Races, Shiver, two pieces from a short I did called The October Coat, and then, some Lament/ Ballad pieces, one of them unfinished (which seems metaphorically appropriate for that series.)

Thick-billed Raven - Corvus crassirostris

The Thick-billed Raven, Corvus crassirostris (Corvidae) is a very large and distinctive looking African Crow. Along with the Common ravens, they have the distinction of being the largest of the Passeriformes, measuring 60 - 64 cm in length.

The two more distinctive features of this species are the white patch on the nape and neck, and its large, thickened, deeply curved and white-tipped bill, which has deep nasal grooves.

This beautiful crow can be found in the so called Horn of Africa, in Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan and Ethiopia.
