Dance of the Birds by Ferrero13 Dance of the Birds by Ferrero13
Pride beats in its tiny chest
The roars of a thousand lions


------------------------

Speedpaint again. Gosh. I seem to be doing a lot of speedpaints these days...and I'm noticing that all my speedpaints last 1 hour 10 minutes...

It's supposed to be a hummingbird. I'm not sure if you can tell. Heh, I realise that birds aren't that difficult to paint!

I was 'inspired', so to speak, by some out of focused painting I saw on television just a few hours ago. I didn't even know what the painting was. It looked like a bird to me, and it looked nice, so I wanted to try painting a bird.

The original was black and white, and more blob-like (no details, just a contour) than an actual painting. I don't know how I ended up painting an entire bird, but I did it, and it looks NICE. Yay.

I fail at animals, so this is a REALLY HUGE accomplishment. Go me. XD I think my colour sense improved. I referenced a few photos I found on Google, but I made up the colour scheme myself. Nice, eh? Well, um, to me, that is.

The darkness in the back wing is off, by the way. It should be...well, darker.

I worked the watercolour tool to its limit. I hope it wouldn't break down on me. It's the first time I've used it so much (and all for the random background).

Great speed painting! I think the blurred background gives more focus to the bird. Fantastic job!

It was the petshop's fault! They didn't give it enough nectar! Must remember to lodge a complaint.

you referred to a real hummingbird to draw this?!
....I do not want to talk to you anymore. I feel like my life as an artist has been....killed. X_X

Eh? No. I referred to photos of hummingbirds. I was completely kidding about the petshops. Okay, maybe I wasn't sarcastic enough... but anyway, how would referring to a real hummingbird kill your life as an artist???

beautiful lighting and blending! :) Might want to tone down a slight bit on the wings though, the reflection might be a bit glaring. But otherwise great job! :)

I love your lineless paintings. They have this pro speedpaint look. Keep it up!

Ah, I do agree about the glaring reflections (at the wing tips, right?). I just wasn't in much of a mood to do any correcting...
