To finish the piece, I added a hint of green overall and played with the levels slightly, I definitely learned a lot about creating realistic looking fur when painting this.


Bird Skull Sketch

After today’s lesson with Kim, I have decided to work more closely with different types of skulls and animal heads, I have been studying the shape and drawing skulls from life and photographs, both with pencil and digitally. I am leaning towards basing my work on people with animal heads or skulls, perhaps with further bone/muscle detail with inspiration from¬†John Heartfield & Nunzio Paci. This is a sketch that I will base my finished painting from.¬†birdskulldigital.png
