Marker with Colored Pencil on Sketch Paper
This prompt was a lot of fun fore me. I knew immediately what I wanted to do when I saw it. We have six parakeets and have had most of them since they were only 8 weeks old and couldn't fly very well. One pet shop clipped the wings so short on one of the birds the poor thing couldn't even flutter to the floor. He would drop like a rock, so this illustration means a lot to me.
In case you were wondering, I decided to separate my blogs. Just in case I ever decide to start selling my artwork ( I already got a gmail and Etsy account with the same name...lol ) I thought it would be best to keep them separate and apart. Thank you Retta for your insight on the subject, I really appreciate it. I also thought it might be easier for those that only want to read about my weight loss journey or just my artwork escapades.
If you're wondering how I got the eyeball on my banner, scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the original sketch. Photoshop has some fantastic little tricks you can do to enhance your images. I'm off to bed now, I'm exhausted but it was just too hot to sleep tonight. Hopefully I'll fall asleep fast and hard. LOL. Can't wait to start on tomorrow's prompt: ornament!
