Chickadee Drawing – Mike

Chickadee Drawing

Hi Matt,

I’ve been getting into drawing the textures and patterns on birds lately. I’ve simplified things a bit on this one because I was short of time – but it was still pretty complicated to draw all those shapes on the wings and tail feathers! I’ve decreased the light/shadow contrast a bit, so I’m worried it looks a little flat.

Also I exaggerated the perspective on the branch to add a little drama!

Thanks for taking a look!

    I like this drawing, Mike! Looks like all the time with the feathers paid off!

      Thanks, Scott! I might revisit it at some point.
