The idea of flight and “spreading my wings” has been the major theme in my life so far in 2019. This is the first time I have really taken the leap to pursue making art full-time. This year has been a great year of exploring my own characters in a universe I am creating called The Realm Ethereal. By coming up with my own designs and worlds, I continue to push myself to make art consistently. And as can be seen, I have consistently been adding creatures of flight in my latest works.
Today’s post is going to be mostly taken up by the video shown here. The video captures me working on the drawing on the grayscale painting phase of the humming bird in the Ena, Ethereal Reveal painting. Be warned, this video is over an hour long but it does capture me from start to finish on painting the humming bird, using photo reference.
So, if you’ve got about an hour and fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to watch. Or, if you feel like listening to me talk about my art methods, show which digital brushes I like to use in Procreate, and listen to my cat begging to be let out at about 4:12 into the video, then by all means click play.
