Red Bird, White Bird

Ah, finally, I've finished this picture, this was pretty near being finished when I took a break from it. Recently I was cleaning up my art folder I noticed that it was still unfinished, so I put the final touches on it and am posting it to share with all of you.

The idea for this picture came from an odd dream where all the birds had white heads, but when they were angry their head feathers would turn a bright red, no it doesn't make much sense, but it's turned into a rather nice picture.


  1. Final product looks really nice. The dream you described brought into mind an image in my head wherein the birds would shake their heads rapidly for a second (like if you've ever seen a pigeon ruffle it's head up) and the white would change to red during that shake. Really brought a nice sense of narrative to the piece for me. The birds themselves are a really nice design, too, it reminds me of a kingfisher's tropical cousin.

  2. Thanks,I was debating about whether or not to describe the dream so I'm glad to know it was worth mentioning. You hit the nail on the head there, I based a lot of their anatomy off of the kingfisher.
