Birds And Pencils




This is one of the many, many birdish critters who set off into the "Birds & Pencils" book. This is BTW the piece I tried to finish live at my Pixel 4.0 workshop - but my laptop wasn't that cooperative that day, so I finished it back home. Voila, another piece done entirely digitally (Photoshop CS4/Wacom):




Update: Jake liked the colour scheme of this piece. Here's the colour palette I used, strongly inspired by the KTM Racing colours:

Alright, and here are some impressions of the Pixel 4.0 weekend. The Austrian Academy of Sciences is quite a place, isn't it... (Photos © Kris Staber/PIXEL. A.r.r.)

Finally, we arrived at the Pixel... the weather is really great and I'm looking forward to hosting the character design workshop. Cheers from Vienna.

Bearish Bird

Or it's a birdish bear, it's a critter with a pecker? Anyway, it's a candidate for inclusion in "Birds & Pencils"!
