Thanks for the compliment. I contemplated putting the raven on the scythe, but the picture became a bit longer then I wished that way so i decided to have it on the shoulder instead. Wanted the Reapers head on chest-level on the shirt. But yes I do admit the raven does fall away a bit against the black robe. Though in the full sized picture it's clearer to see then in the shrunken down one and it does also depend a bit on how dark your screen displays.
