Sometimes, I bite off a little more than I can chew.
Have you ever seen “For The Birds”? It’s a hilarious Pixar short film that you owe yourself to see if you’ve never done so. Well, today, I had the grand idea of making fan art of this short.
So, I first make myself a sketch:
So far, so good. I then begin to color in the big bird and one of the small birds:
It’s at this point when I start asking myself “How am I going to do these feathers”? And do I have an answer for myself? No. I do not. The only way I can think of to do the feathers in Photoshop would be to actually draw every feather on every little bird, and I’m going to be honest with you… that would take a very long time. Hair and feathers are difficult and time consuming to create in any art form, and I didn’t have that kind of time on my hands tonight.
So, you’re stuck with unfinished art to look at. For some, this may be a fascinating insight into the behind-the-scenes of my art creation process. For others, you’ll look at it for 5 seconds and say “Screenhog’s lazy!”.
Yes. Yes I am.
