2023-03-09 day 265 of doing art every day for a year (mostly – I took sick days off).
I decided that today, I would do my own thing while applying the lessons from yesterday’s tutorial. Today’s subject is a king fisher. This bird was a frequent visitor to our house in Sri Lanka, so I feel a bit of affinity for the bird.
I didn’t do things exactly the same as yesterday’s digital painting, of course. Nevertheless, it is done and I’m quite happy with the results.
I used only standard Procreate brushes:
- Sketching/Narinder Pencil
- Water/Wet Glaze
- Water/Wet Sponge
It took me just over 2h 9m and 5916 strokes. I took my colour palette from the reference image.
My time lapse is here:
