They could be storks or herons for all I know (my reference picture didn’t say). Crane Dance just sounded nice. The male is giving it his all, prancing and flapping like a mad-bird amongst the wind-blown blossom petals. The female ignores him. 100% vector using Illustrator 10. Nice and clean image (illustrator? freehand? hand draw?). Yes, they are cranes (red-crowned crane, I suposse). You knows the nature works of Hokusai? He make a study about how draw cranes with only one brush stroke. japa – this was done in Illustrator 10 using a modified photograph as reference. I wanted an oriental feel to the picture (hence the blossom petals whirling around) – I hope I succeeded. I don’t know the works of Hokusai – I’ll try and find some and have a look! Source.
