Back to the Background
I have had a chance to do a little more drawing on this one...the busyness of the holidays kept me away from the drawing table. Now things are getting back to normal, and I should be able to finish this one up soon.
I really don't like backgrounds. But this bird would not show up or be as dynamic without the dark background. I wanted the contrast between the white feathers and the dark swamp behind him, I just didn't think about having to fill it all in!! I will keep plugging away, and using the Icarus board to help with the large areas of color.
