Two adorable corvids just in front of roaring mountain.
Probably a male and female adult pair since one was a bit larger than the other.

Common raven
Corvus corax

Yes, just as long as it is drawn and not traced.
And it would be great if I could see the finished piece.

They're very cute. We have a compost heap behind my house, and a pair of ravens always come whenever my mom brings the garbage. She calls them and they fly down to perch on one of the lower tree branches. Sometimes, they even accompain us when we go walking through the fields. They've been nicknamed "Coco & Jacquot" and they actually respond to their names.

Wish I could take such a beautiful picture as yours, but my fluffy fellows aren't that cooperative...yet  :D (Big Grin)

Neat :D
I think corvids learn to recognize people (whether they be good or bad, and they act accordingly). 
I had a family (maybe two) of scrub jays at my old place who knew me when I came outside and would demand peanuts.
It did take them a while to warm back up to me when I'd go back to visit a few times a year. They became a bit cautious of me and waited for me to leave to go collect their bounty of peanuts. 

Thanks :D

Where I live, a pair of raven always fly past my house. They are inseparable and whenever I see them I always say "It's Huginn and Muninn." Odin's raven messengers.

I wish I had a pair of ravens living around my apartment. But I think all of the crows and magpies that outnumber the ravens in town may disagree.

These two must have a pretty strong pair bond. Ravens have been known to mate for life. And the pairs I've seen are just adorable!

Awesome! I think I had some scrub jays nesting in my yard when I lived in Oregon. But there are baby magpies every year to wake us up at FIVE in the morning because they want food so they're going to yell at everything.

Great photo, I love ravens, and this is fantastic detail. I used to spend hours, sitting in parking lots feeding ravens, french fries. When I lived in Valdez, AK. There were always tons of them around. Some day I would like to go back, and spend more time photographing them.

They are pretty common in parking lots in a lot of the National Parks that I've visited. Every so often they'll be at the popular stops too.
I had one of my first encounters with friendly ravens at the Petrified Forest, where there was almost one pair per stopping scenic point.

They are gorgeous birds. And super smart! I got to watch some of their antics last time I went to the park. They LOVE to investigate truck beds. If there is something in there they'll find it and see if it's worth flying away with. There are even reports of them unzipping pockets and undoing velcro.
