Works in Progress: Black, White, and Color with Cages

My Sphinx is coming along:

but I don't know how happy I am with her background. This is of course part of why I do things in stages. While I was working on this Monday, I *hated* the background; now i kind of like it, but I still feel there's something else I might be able to do that would be cooler.

And she has a friend:

Whose background I really *am* dissatisfied with, but I don't know exactly what I want to do differently. So...another afternoon spent playing with background scribbles, I think!

That said- I am *this close* to actually posting something new in my Etsy shop again! Rejoicings!

Still, this black and white is getting to me! I need to play with colors:

Look at all the empty cages! What do you think belongs there?

I love the black-and-whites, they remind me of old woodcuts and they're very dramatic.

Oh! Oh! Put clockwork critters in 'em! <3 (For some really odd reason I love the layout on this one.) n_n

Oooh, I'm digging the style of the black and white works. The feathers and scales look amazing.

The sphinx is nicely balanced contrasts.

B&W is for you!
Color is for chumps
