Monthly Drawing Thread 3/2018

This month will be a bit different for many of you ... birds of one sort or another. Feathers can be tricky and are a good tool to have in your drawing skills.

You have a good soft texture to the feathers which is part of what I was thinking about with this reference. And you are getting away from outlines which shows in greater realism.

Good Challenge Ken.
I'll have to try one, might be a week or so from now... I'm in the middle of some other works.
I hope you are doing OK, Ken.

Beautiful, Penny.
Great going, Isobel.
My take on the Mandarin duck, A4. My background is lightened on purpose to try and make the bird more prominent.
