Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-10
Sparrow Spirit by ~pfors The suggester writes: "This piece is so creative and unique, I love it. The unusual character gorgeously anthropomorphized in such a creative way - I love how the artist has used the front feathers and turned them into a cute cardigan! The background fits perfectly with the rest of the image, both in colour and design, but isn't distracting at all - only adds to the atmosphere!"

I like vultures visually and conceptually, I just wouldn't want one anywhere too close to me :P

I'm glad you like them. I'm not entirely happy with them myself. I think I should do some hand studies in the not too distant future.

Congratulations on the Daily Deviation. What is the media that you can get such an interesting texture effect? The piece reminds me a bit of a Kachina doll. A very cool piece.

Thanks. It's painted in Photoshop with a bunch of self made brushes (I wish PS had a more advanced brush engine though).

Interesting. Never used Photoshop.

It's a good all round graphics tool, but if you're mostly going to do digital painting I'd advice learning Painter instead.

I do sculpture work mostly so MS Paint does the trick for me most of the time, but I will certainly look into learning Painter since I do occasionally like to do 2D work.

Oooh, this is lovely. She looks like such a wise beast! Although, I thought it was a California Condor 'cuz of the pink head. :P

Thank you. I'd actually been painting vultures not long before this, so I guess the idea of bald birds was still hanging around ;)

Funny thing is, it's really just on the border of what I'd consider a speed painting. I don't think I even submitted it to the fantasy club.

Only a little evil. I estimate it to be about 20 cm tall ;P
