Say hi to my forever-project.

What started as a random bird sketch turned out to be quite a piece of work. I haven't done anything else in a while.
I wanted to mix some different styles: my regular lineart + color, textures and stylized patterns. On the other hand aiming for realism and on the other going the exact opposite way. That's kind of what I've been doing all along.

I counted the feathers by the way: 673. Over six hundred feathers sketched, lined and colored. :'D I'm crazy.

I hope it's worth your long wait!

Ps. This uploaded version is 35% of the original and shrinking the picture really cut the quality as well. :S It's decent enough but the lineart got kind of messy.
(too tired to think of good titles so I might change it later)

Tulin selailemaan sun galleriaa, ja näähän on ihan mielettömiä! Niin upeat sävyt! Ihailen kauheasti digitaalisen taiteen tekijöitä, itse kun en haltsaa sitä (ja olen laiska) opettelemaan :D

Uh, kiitosh~! :heart: Digitaalinen on olevinaan helpompi työtapa kuin monet muut, mutta kaikki on tottumisesta kiinni. Kun hallitsee oman välineensä niin kaikesta saa helpon näköistä. : P

Multa ei irtoa tällä hetkellä yhtään mitään fiksua kommenttia, mutta sanonpahan vaan että namnamnam...! Aivan ihana! Just tuollaisesta linet + jotain realismia -tyylistä mä tykkään. Väriyhdistelmät, tuo ruskea kera turkoosin sävyn ja sinisen, on upea, ja muutenkin koko konsepti on todella tyylikäs. Sori, taidan hävyttömästi kokeilla ympätä tämän tietokoneen taustakuvaksi... :p

Voi kiitos kiitos. :3 Siitä meinasi tulla ensin perinteinen liekki-feenix mutta sitten kuvassa olis ollu vähän liikaa värejä (kellertävän, vihreän ja sinisen lisäksi vielä oranssia ja punaista - huhhuh) Ja ruskeat linnut on aliarvostettuja. "Tylsiä" mukamas. Kattoo nyt jonkun koppelonkin höyhenpukua niin ei voi yksinkertaiseksi väittää. :D

Omg it looks so epic. o_o The many feathers must take you very long, I understand this. I wish I were as good as you in drawing feathers. Q^Q
I really love the design of this bird. Simple Colors but nice looking markings.
I don't know but at first it reminded me on music. I think because of the lines in the background haha.
This is very very well done. Keep up the good work. :heart:

The feathers were the reason this took so long to make. Otherwise it's not so complicated really. :') But without them it wouldn't be anything special.
Oh, not that you mention it, it kinda feels like the sun is singing or something. xD I didn't think of it myself.
Thanks again for the comment :love:
