My submission for this week's Illustration Friday theme 'Jungle' ~
...Which is in stark contrast to last week's theme, I know! :) Last week's was a fully-digitally-edited pencil sketch on a plain background - I still seem to be swinging back and fourth between drawing styles! Although I've shyed away from drawing/painting like this, I think I still prefer it over digitally creating artworks. Maybe.
Anyway, I felt like attempting a full-colour painting this time, as recently I've not been doing so many backgrounds. I also wanted to challenge myself to do a fully traditional piece - which this is, apart from a slight colour tweak (I'm sorry, the temptation was too great!) And I chose to do a selection of lovely jungly birds because, well, I wanted as much colour as possible, and I have a thing for drawing birds at the moment! I used watercolours, pencil crayons, and Sakura Souffle pens, which I adore.
I'd like feedback on this one, any thoughts at all just let me know in the comments below! :)
