House Sparrow study in Prismacolor pencil

This is a study for a larger drawing of the entire bird. I wanted to get a feel for working on the colored, textured gray paper, and also to get the correct feather directions. The main feather tracts of a bird's upper body start at the beak, so it's important to get them correct!

  1. aloha Abigail – you have a very good eye. i like the way you build up your color. in this one i also like the texture you get and that i can see the line as line, yet i also feel the form and shapes of the bird and feathers. cool.
