Blackbird by FoolEcho Blackbird by FoolEcho
I don't like contests, but it was an old idea using some of my previous vectors and I like the theme for this one... so it's for it: [link] .

I know it's not the real interpretation for "blackbird", but no matter... :paranoid:

:music: Blackbird singing in the dead of night
:music: Take these broken wings and learn to fly
:music: All your life
:music: You were only waiting for this moment to arise

:music: Blackbird singing in the dead of night
:music: Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
:music: All your life
:music: You were only waiting for this moment to be free

:music: Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
:music: Into the light of the dark black night
:music: You were only waiting for this moment to arise

:stereo:

Blackbird - The Beatles
The Fool On The Hill - The Beatles
Free As A Bird - The Beatles :happycry:

:peace:

January 2012 (so "happy new year", it seems... take care of you. :shrug:).

I love the black and white colors on this. Simple yet dramatic at the same time.

Simple but bold, very fitting. Really like how all the elements come together, as it were.

It was an old idea... Initially, with Paul on the left and the blackbird facing him, on the right... But I think it works too on the shoulder. And silhouettes give something more, keeping things simple. :)
Thanks for the :+fav:.

Thanks. It was the purpose. They are less known songs (except by the fans :giggle:) that I appreciate so much. :dummy:

It's not because it's just silhouettes that it couldn't be neat. ;)

Thanks. It was an old idea. Silhouettes give something that I like... "Keep it simple, stupid". It changes and it's faster than my usual vectors (I've my old Beatles serie to continue to revamp, yet... but I expect to do a movie related -- not Beatles -- in the next weeks :) ). :giggle:
