Eclipse by Charmed-Ravenclaw Eclipse by Charmed-Ravenclaw
I would have called this Birds of Yang III but I think there are enough of those in my gallery :P For :iconladyrapid:'s Black and White charity contest! [link]

So Yeah! This is the original concept behind Birds of Yang!: [link] but I didn't have Illustrator at the time so I couldn't quite make it as epic as I wanted. Its the closest thing I've had to my mind's eye thus far - and I've improved on the composition a lot!

Made entirely in Illustrator using flare, mesh and gradient tools.

:iconcritique-it: If there are any ideas for making this more epic, please let me know. What do you think of the composition? Do the action lines work? How does the eclipse look?

This is such an epic work. I'm already a huge "fan" of yin and, but this... WOW!
I love the ideia of the eclipse at the back and the contrast between the animals... it reminds me of a chess game.

The concept and execution are awesome! Love the dramatic contrast. :-)

Per the action lines, I think they work well, but perhaps you can consider experimenting with varying the spacing between the lines more, or even with varying the line widths more, to create additional visual interest? Kinda like comic book action lines? Just an idea. It all depends on the kind of look you want to achieve.

I will try considering that. I'm also thinking of adding clouds to it when I have more time to make it more dramatic.

Reminds me of the moon/water spirit symbolism in Avatar (the anime series). Beautiful :)

Well, they obviously both have roots in the yin/yang symbol, but the use of animals is somewhat paralleled, and I love it :)
