I am sharing the steps that I went through while drawing/painting this amazing falcon.
I hope that you fall in love with his beautiful colors as much as I have.
|The head was a little too chubby in my first attempt. I did like the feet though.|
|This one looks much better but i ran out of room for the red feet!|
I decided to make use of both drawings and put them together, yet separate.
Like this -
I had to clean it up a bit and darken the lines.
It looks like this now -
And after a little PSE magic, here is the final drawing with digital paint applied.
Of course the colors I used are a bit bolder than you would find in nature but as an artist, I am allowed that.
If so, then I am allowing a background color on this one.
No actual birds were harmed during this exercise.
I know that you are happy that I didn't chop the red feet off of a falcon while drawing this.
