Here is just a quick sketch of a seagull. This is not a subject I have much practise drawing and getting a sense of movement is quite difficult. This is in preparation for one of my books I am getting ready for the Christmas Season. I have used the airbrush for the colour of the bird, inkpen for the outline and paint pot to fill in the background on my Bamboo pad using Art Rage Studio Pro
I have been playing around with the art package Art Rage on my Bamboo tablet for a little while and am slowly getting the hang of it. In the images below I have shown 2 different stages for a character I have been starting to explore.
This is the half way through stage. I used airbrush for the coloured areas and chalk for the outline. I have not used these 2 mediums before (not digitally anyway).
I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to make the subject not too life like which is generally the style of my artwork. For the first go I am pretty pleased with it, of course there is always room for improvement. My next challenge is backgrounds!
