Through the Sky by cryslara Through the Sky by cryslara
I'm heading out for the weekend in a moment but I thought I'd drop this guy here before I went. I thought he might make a nice card if anyone was so inclined. :D

This was a painting I've been working on intermittently between commissions as just a bit of relaxation. It was really just an excuse to paint big fanning feathers.

No idea on the time or music for this one, he was just for fun!
Tools: Photoshop CS4, Wacom Intuos 4

Colors: The colors are very well chosen. A bit more color contrast would've popped out the bird. Maybe you could use the complementary color of the bird for his eye (blue, green?) To add intensity to his expression.

Composition: Great composition, the flow lines lead you right to his face and overall the position of the bird was worked in excellence.

Technique: Great brush strokes, the detail of the feathers is great, the eye is specifically magnificent. Some brush strokes on the top right corner were a bit left off.

Overall this piece is masterfully created and deserves great appreciation! :)

LOOOVE your feathers AND clouds. There's nothing as satisfying as making feathers and clouds, esp. when they look this good.
