Today I present to you the Masked Water Tyrant which is a nice add to my feathered art collection
and I will show you of course my process and the tools I use to digitally create my bird 😊
I use the app Procreate, as usual, on my Ipad pro
this is a very simple,creative and intuitive to use app, and that is the best tool for me to find back the feeling to paint traditionally even if it's a digital apparatus 😁
Why did i choose to draw the Masked Water Tyrant ? Just randomly on its nice shape and on its stylish name 😄
I start with searching some photos on Google to have a sort of board that helps me see better the caracteristics of the bird, its shape and this of its beak, and so on...
What is cool on the Ipad pro is you can work on your app and have on the side your googled references at the same time, you can scroll while you draw if you want to see other details that allow you to create your bird....
Once finished, I made another drawing on a top layer that I then fill in black to have the silhouette of the bird.
This silhouette serves as a black background for the dark version, it also allows me to define the contours of my bird, the shape in which to fit my patterns in a coherent and aesthetic way 😉
Talking about patterns, it's now time to have the best fun with this part of the process that involves LOT OF motives and designs in different colors
For every bird I draw in this collection, there are always the same colors used, and I share them with you below
The animation is also created in Procreate, this is now my favourite part, but as usual, each step of the creation process is my favourite 😁
