Fiach Dubh, -the Trickster by wycked Fiach Dubh, -the Trickster by wycked
The Dubh Sidhe, or Dark Faeries, is a race of tricksters who often take the form of ravens. The Raven is considered one of the oldest and wisest of animals. In Celtic mythology they have the power of prophecy and also act as a messengers for the Irish and Welsh gods.

Awesome work! I love sidhe stories and this picture catches the right atmosphere just perfectly.

Have you read the book Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke? This also reminds me of the Raven King from that novel.

This is so well done in all aspects and friggin cool... Plus he reminds me of an RP character of mine. Long hair, a feathered cloak and has ravens.

This one's worth a fave!

Wow, this gave me the chills. It's so dark and mystical. Even though the clothes look modern, he seems ancient. That's just the feeling I get when I look at this. Everything about this is stunningly perfect but I especially love the cloudy sky, lightning, and ravens; seems so ominous. You are a truly talented artist. (:

Just stunning! I've seen a lot of winged fantasy people, but they're usually six-limbed rather than this mid-shift aspect. And since I've always loved the corvids as well....

Ah, I finally found this artwork again. I like a lot when I saw it more than a year ago, loved the pose (from stock model photo) and love the black cape with the feathers on it that makes it look like wings. I used this pose and idea to make my Guardian Angel Vincent, but had lost the link to this so I could give you credit. Thanks! :)
