Hens and their rooster by tir-ri Hens and their rooster by tir-ri
These fluffy hens belong to a young witch who lives in the Southern woods and the very peculiar rooster- Well, one day he just appeared as from nowhere and dazzled these silly little ladies. No matter how many times did the witch try shoo him away, he always came back and eventually made his home in the henhouse.
At least he takes good care of the fluffy birds. :heart:

Art and the birds (c) me,
painted with fine and thicker watercolors.

Totally charming illustration! :D Seeing first-hand the way a protective rooster interacts with hens---and they with him---is quite the experience. Moving, even.

They are cute! I used to use chickens in my art too, but they were not as good as yours. I actually used to own and show chickens. My fav is the Sliver-Gray Dorkings. I'll have to commission you on some water color chickens ( if you do commissions).

I'm looking for some inspiration for some stationery I got to do for a class (I study design) and I came back here, I like lot of your works and the style you work with the watercolors...
This one kept my attention longer because of some random thought, and what if the rooster is enchanted, is a magical creature or a person disguised by a spell? After all, he ended in a witch's house.

I noticed a few people were wondering about this rooster as well, if he was a person trapped in a form of a bird. The rooster is what the witch suspects a some kind of a forest spirit, who took the form of a rooster to attract her fluffy hens (the peculiar spirit also seems to think of the witch as his mama nowadays). :>

Well, I like that explanation... And it's kind of cute how that works out for them, I find it adorable how he keeps her company and I guess in some way it's more than the normal one the hens bring her, because there must be some kind of cleverness attached to his supernatural nature... (It's nice to create these stories for your own characters, it's nice to complete them as a person who's just watching, hope you don't mind ^^;)

Your storybook illustrations are really awesome
those colours and the way you use watercolour - you're an amazing master to learn from
and those fine lines ... <3

recently i got a job - with a friend of mine we have to illustrate latvian folk literature ... i had a lots of ideas on my mind, but now, seeing your work i understood, that i have a loooooong way to go to even try to reach your level ... it's so amazing, how can you even put so many layers of watercolour and the tones are still bright, i wonder? i wish i had you as a teacher of illustrations ..

sorry if i take your time too much, but would you mind to give me some suggestions on how make a childrens folk tales illustrations more interesting for them? and what kind of characters are more appealing for them - the cute, stylized or realistic ones? .. i'm still a secondary schooler and a beginner too ...

i'd be really glad if you'd comment me back :3

your illustrations are so beautiful .. can't get my eyes off them, could just sit here and watch them for hours ...

I think there are many ways to approach storybook illustrations, not just looking through books written by professionals of about the topic but also studying the works of other artists of the industry. Your friend surely knows the target audience (specific age group) for the stories written and you can always think what personally appealed to you in book illustrations when you were a child. Have fun with the project. ^^
