Kookaburra WIP 1

Started on this drawing of a Kookaburra today, thank you to Andrew Wallace for permission to use his photo as a reference.  I'm happy with how it's going so far.  I always find patterns in feathers a bit daunting at first but once you get stuck into it it's alright.

Whimsical Rosella

I drew this the other night, felt like doing something a bit whimsical and from my imagination.  I really like the idea of writing and illustrating a children's book one day with drawings similar to this, maybe in the future I might think more about it

Very excited, my artist profile and step-by-step demo has been published in the latest issue of Artist's Palette magazine (issue #113).  7 pages in total.  Really pleased with how my drawings look.

Video Critique

I recently joined a great art site called Art Tutor where there are lots of online tutorials in all mediums and subjects and a great community of artists to chat to as well.  As being one of the first members to this new site I won a video critique of one of my artworks.  I chose the tri-colour cat drawing.  Here is the link to the video critique by Bob Davies:
