Bird Man Wizard


On the corner of Western and Lawrence in Chicago, there has always been a man that stood in front of Walgreens covered in pigeons.   I don't mean a few, I mean 60 fucking pigeons covered his entire body.  The guy was disgusting, and freaky, and awesome and inspiring all in one.  He died recently, who knows why, but he's gone.  Keeping in line with my urban fantasy theme, I used him as a starting point for what my Wizard would look like if the world had wizards.  It's quick, and has a lot of potential to be something more.  I think I'll keep building on this design over the next week and see what I can come up with.

i love the concept a magical world behind our own. it's awsome. i like the idea that to normal people he's a homeless man but in the magical world he's a wizard. awsome.

I really really like the world you're creating , and although you have only posted a couple of concepts , I can alredy imagine the other creatures ,a nymph as a " lady of the evening" calling men to a bitter end ,or a witch acting as a socialite or a business woman , or that nice old lady from across the street , and think of all the things that could hide in the sewers!
I cant wait to seemore of this!

Great stuff man. I really hope this "urban fantasy" is the big project your working on, and these arent just warm ups of awesomeness that we'll never see again. Keep it up and keep 'em coming.

messytimbo said...

cool! i love stuff like that, there's a freaky bag lady of hammersmith where i live, but not quite as extreme as 60 pigeon man. i think your right, that idea or concept has a lot of potential, especially with your style. i can't wait to see it developed

Janderson said...

That looks great, Skottie!

I live a block away from where that guy used to be with his birds. Thats a great character design and great homage to an old dirty weirdo!

Brax Harrison said...

It really seems that every town and city has its unique characters. I was in Bainbridge, GA once and saw a homeless guy walking about with several different breeds of dogs just following him about. There were big ones and small ones and you could distinguish the varying breeds. The funny thing was that every single dog was solid black. No other color, just black.

Nice piece, Skottie. I'm sure the bird man appreciates it.

Viagra is definitely a better from of erectile dysfunction treatment than gene therapy, a mode of anti-impotency treatment that has yielded successful results in treating erectile dysfunction in men. But before getting hold of viagra, it would be better for you to go through the website http://www.viagraforce.com and procure the necessary details on the medicine.

Generic Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

Generic Viagra is a prescription drug that takes care of the physical dilemma of erectile dysfunction in men. Sildenafil citrate is the major component of generic viagra pills that dilates the arteries in the penis and allows filling of blood in small spaces of penis that hardens and gets erect.

Propecia works by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. This reduces the level of hormone, DHT, in the scalp and allows hairs to revert to a normal growth cycle. This results in no further hair loss and significantly new hair growth in men with Male Pattern Hair Loss.

Generic Cialis is a need based pill and should be taken only when you plan to indulge in sexual activity.

johnnysmith said...

Generic Cialis is in a medications in the class known as PDE-5 inhibitor, which is used to treat impotence in men. Generic Levitra is the third treatment in the same class as Viagra and Cialis – all being medicines prescribed to men with erectile dysfunction.

johnnysmith said...

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.
