Three Raven Brothers by jankolas Three Raven Brothers by jankolas
Original for sale here - www.etsy.com/listing/189697899… .

For the round 1 of "Team dArt Showdown" fav.me/d4z3p28 , with the topic "Change".

We are a Slavic team (me :iconjankolas:, :iconmirachravaia: and :iconsnowberenika: from Slovakia, and :iconvisanastasis: from Montenegro), so we decided to interpret the theme through Slavic folklore. Pavel Dobšinský was the most famous fairy-tale collector in the Slovakia, and this fairy-tale, called "The Tree Raven Brothers" is from his collection. It is similar to Andersen's Wild Swans: there are three brothers, turned to ravens, and their sister who has to free them by seven years of not speaking. The raven brothers live in a crystal castle as men during the night, and fly through the world like ravens during the day.

We decided to depict this change, together with the changing seasons in our works:

:iconsnowberenika: - Spring Three Raven brothers by SnowBerenika
:iconmirachravaia: - Summer Three Raven Brothers by MirachRavaia
:iconvisanastasis: - Autumn Three Raven Brothers by VisAnastasis
:iconjankolas: - Winter (this work) - watercolour painting
