This is what I spent my morning doing. I'm only good at drawing big birds like cockatoos and macaws. I'm terrible at drawing budgies.

I'll bet you're better than you think at drawing budgies. Try one and post it.

Inspired (from memory lol) by:

The finished drawing kind of reminds me of Kung Fu Panda for some reason.

I realized that I actually have a lot of bird drawings (mostly parrots, but not all of them) that I have yet to share.

I'm thinking about making a YouTube video where I draw all 403 parrot species, so this is me practicing. Please tell me if you think that video would be a good idea. And I'm not telling you not to subscribe. ;)

I think it's the sleepy eyes with the faint eyebrows! So cute! You are better with budgies than you think. Keep trying.
That budgie photo is absolutely priceless!
Thanks 😁

Generally it sounds like a fun challenge. If you decide to do it - are you going to do all of them black and white? Asking because species from the same genera may look very similar without colors, so if you draw using colors too, maybe this would a better idea. But I fully understand if you draw only black and white.
Generally you are good, IMO black and white is much harder than colorful way

I'm working on my colored pencil skills now, but I'm best with graphite. I was concerned about differentiating all the macaws, but it might be okay if I have them in different poses and I clarified, "THIS is a blue and gold macaw, etc."
Thanks for the help!
