Paradise bird by Aomori Paradise bird by Aomori
Commission for :iconjuliebales:
Type: Detailed character on semi-simple background


As I expected from the very beginning, Eàrrsanh was extremely grateful subject to paint. I just love this deep blue color of his body and really wanted to show it on my drawing.

The background is rather painterly, I used a lot of brushes in it, for grass some for leaves and general texture brush ...for everything else :lmao:

I always made myself stupid challenges - when I opened commissions I said I want to concentrate on character painting and will do only SIMPLE BG. Then I sketched a landscape like this one :lmao:

EDIT 01: ...oh and since you ask - for trudly-detailed bg the mountains and clouds should be more refined. And there could be some rocks in the grass in the corner, etc :)

EDIT 02: Thank you for so much comments and faves! :love: I feel spoiled :blushes:


Julie is a very talented artist herself, if you don't know her works, you really should visit her gallery :love:

Wiesz, maluję w tej chwili konika, i padam na twarz przed twoimi skillami. Czy twoja magia kryje się w obcykanej końskiej anatomii? Czy w super-duper referencach? Nie obchodzi mnie to, magia to magia :B

Myslę, że to tylko i wyłącznie odrobina praktyki. Co tu ukrywać, konie stanowią lwią cześć mojej galerii, trochę się ich namalowałam w życiu i człowiek już po prostu wie co i jak powinno wyglądać żeby to było w miarę realistyczne. Ale andal nieraz posiłkuję się różnymi refami, zwłaszcza do tych blasków, bo one są jeszcze dla mnie nieprzewidywane D: Jak się w ogóle udał Twój konik? :>

Wow! This is really amazing. The horse has a perfect anatomy. The colours of the paradise bird gives it a best appearence if this is possible. And the background, well, there isn't words enough to describe it.

Great work!

Niesamowity! Jeden najlepszy z Twoich rysunków i szczerze nie wiem czemu wcześniej go nie skomentowałam. Koń jest przepiękny i wspaniale współgra z tłem. I jego poza jest taka dostojna...
