Bird practice sketches by namu-the-orca Bird practice sketches by namu-the-orca
Species depicted: many, ask if interested!
Time taken: 1 hour / 2 minutes each
References used: artists.pixelovely.com/
Tools of the trade: Photoshop CS5


Not dead! Yesterday I found out about this hideously handy website, artists.pixelovely.com/, where you can basically choose what you want to practice (hands, expressions, birds, horses, etc.), set a timer for how long you want to work on each picture and voíla, your own customised slideshow with reference pictures to practice with. So today I decided to give it a go with the birdies :) I drew thirty in total, each sketch done in two minutes. Lots of fun to do and great practice!

*comments just now*
When I saw the eagle owl sketch I was like "I saw that in shutterstock XD" 
I've been thinking of making a tutorial on those birds since I'm quite familiar with their complex anatomy and species XD
can I use your dolphin drawing tutorial for outline reference?

Haha, yeah, I guess these pics are pretty widely known.

Yes you may use it as a reference, so long as it's not obviously copied without original input, and as long as you give some sort of link back to me/my tutorial in the deviation description :)

Thanks! If you mean the owner of the wing that stretches above the robin, it was some kind of gull (very busy eating a huge crab, which I artistically replaced with a fish because they're easier to draw). The dark markings there were my attempt at getting down the shadows, which actually only makes it look weirder XD If you mean the sitting bird above the robin, that's a lady peacock :)
