Human and parrot version of Veronica
Veronicas.png

The human version has a long braid but I made it behind her because I was drawing her braid yesterday and I was almost crying doing it 😝

I love your translations from human to bird and how you show the body language of the bird!!

Braids are a repeating pattern. Although it’s easier to draw the tail of the braid and harder to draw the part where the hair grows from your head and is portioned into the braid. I bet you could find photos of light haired people online and figure it out.

Thanks Heather
Braids are a repeating pattern.
Yeah, believe me or not - I was drawing repeating the pattern, then I wanted to correct something and then I forgot how I was doing it and couldn't recall how I was doing it, even looking on what I have done. I think it's possible only with me, my memory gets worse and worse

But I keep noticing your parrots need two toes pointing backwards. Unless I am just not seeing them from the front because a toe is hidden β€œbehind” the leg?
Actually - at the begging I was skipping the 4th toe because of Rio style but then I realized that originally I wanted to fix this mistake, so currently I draw 4 toes, sometimes the smallest one isn't visible (Jacob is one of my my last ones done in the 3-toe way). Veronica from my last post is my old art but before posting her I edited her adding the 4th toe - on PC it's not really visible but if you zoom, you can spot it (better visible on her right foot because on the left one there's just one toe visible behind and very weakly)

Two years ago I decided to draw a GCC for Christmas. One year later I decided to do a remake in more current way, just different mutation... This year my way was changed again, so why not to do it again...

I still don’t get why the geeen birds have no beak. Otherwise I think the drawings are great! Quite professional. Maybe you could make a comic strip like ChickenThoughts or Potatopatito or FalseKnees.
Thanks.
It's because he wears a mask, that's why the beak isn't visible. One day I will draw him without the mask

Maybe you should draw the mask, unless it’s a plot point that you can’t see the mask or tell that they are wearing it. Right now it looks like they have no mouth and only eyes.

The mask is drawn (I marked it read)

Probably, I designed the masks so terrible, so it isn't really visible... (+the character above decided to dye himself green, like his mask, so maybe it's even harder to spot it in his case)

Anyway, probably it's the last time when I draw them with masks

OH!! I’m sorry! I thought you meant face mask, like a COVID mask, covering only the mouth and nose (or beak) you mean a mask over the whole face.

Now I understand. I did not before. That’s why I kept asking.

Btw talking of the "masked parrots" - I have one art of them not posted here at all yet

So, it's the first time when I share it on the forum

These drawings would work very well for embroidery designs, like canvases for needlepoint.

You could probably make some income with this. Are you a design student?

Nope, I don't study design.

I don't want to make any income with my art, it's only for fun. I don't feel it would be fair because I often use ready poses, just remaking them (eg the parrot with the hat, it was ready drawing, I changed just colors to make it a conure) or redrawing some other elements (eg the tree house from the background)

I have been wanting to make a Quaker needlepoint for a walk hanging or Christmas stocking and that drawing could totally be used on a stocking.

I have sold a bit of art and the commissions helped me out (for having spending money to make more art). I want to learn how to make a quilt and I think then I might sell it.
