I saw this heron in a bird reference book and thought I’d give it a try using my Cintiq tablet. I am finding this digital art medium to be a lot of fun and very liberating. I have not done a lot of feathered creatures before…this was fun. I notice that the colors are not the same as the original photo but it does not really have to be to qualify as a creative project I guess. I am not going for photo-reality, rather trying to loosen up my creativity a bit.
