Hi guys, just got a random idea. It's popping up in my mind the whole time, and I really want to do it. I am going to do it in a realistic style.

I just want to practice a bit and get better at art, and I really want to try birds I have never drawn before.

I want to try draw birds(mostly parrots, suggestions welcome!) using different mediums(I'm not doing digital, though)

Mediums I have available ATM:
Pencil
Colour pencil
Acrylic
Watercolour
Watercolour pencil
Pastel
Pastel crayons

If you know of any other affordable mediums that I could use, please suggest some. Also, what cool birds should I try? I don't just want to do budgies and cockatiels only, lol. I am going to try draw some of the birds in this thread:
If you want me to draw one of your birds, please PM me or share a pic in the thread

I think soft pastels and pastel pencils should work really well for drawing birds. Oil pastels can be pretty harsh although they are vivid enough to depict a brightly colored bird.

I got a deal on 36 artists markers and I think that would be a good way to hand-illustrate kind of like Rosalka does her parrots on computer.

Hey there, thanks for the suggestions! I have some kokis(markers) laying around, so I'll use those. Sounds like a fun idea. They're not specifically for art, but they'll work fine.
