The collective noun for a group of Ravens is an unkindness. I always thought this was quite poetic on its own.
An unkindness of ravens also happens to be a book.
It's always nice when higher resolutions of images are provided for pile-ups.
I liked the wild hair and make-up of one of the images and the top from another and was chewing on how best to make this combine.
Although I think ravens and crows tend to be a bit over used in gothic - emo imagery, I still like em! So this is my take on the subject. I wanted the ravens to look like they'd been picking on the net top and to give some sort of narrative to the image. Ravens destroying your clothes is pretty unkind! (Well ok that's subjective coz it's kind for the rest of us who get to see more of Lulu Jameson revealed!)
I also couldn't decide which to post - the full portrait or one that was cropped closer to the head which enabled you to zoom in on the details. So i posted both.
Had lots of fun (and got driven a teensy weeny bit crazy by it! Heh)
Oh bonus pile up is the How to make a Lulustein 1.0
