Mixed bag

Starting to paint things more regularly! Stuff from the past 2 weeks.

Ornithology assignment Parts A and B

Part A: Bird Topography  
My illustrator files seem to be getting absurdly huge. O_O

Part B:  Wing Feather arrangement

Le Hawks were so cool!  Too bad we didn't get an owl or something equally exotic this year.

Sketch dump

Sketches from hawk visits last week + ROM trip


Used blue pencil but somehow it became a really light grey when scanned.. so some surgery was needed.

ruffed grouse

Harris hawk

Red-tailed Hawk

FACES! Which I haven't done in a long time.. I think I drew them too generic-ish. Yes I hate black conte.

Painting uses too much brain.  Shape + colour study. Failed composition + chopping of limbs , thanks for the crit~   I'm only pleased with the legs.  :C

couple of last week's LDs

 Me foot is off.  It looks like it needs to be bigger, but I can't show it turning.

Not so much observing as it is design? Or changing from observation to design.

Just a quick update of a short enviro study

first post of 2012

...2012.   I'm dreading this year. Not because of some Mayan prediction.  Some paint sketches I did to warm up after not painting for a long time.

Skyrim influence. It's now locked away where I can't touch it.
