Drawing Eyes and Feathers with Colored pencils

in #drawing4 years ago

Hi steemians! these are tep by step pictures of my drawing! Here are the work in progress pictures of my Owl drawing! His name is Zeus, a rescued screech owl.
He is blind but what a miracle in his eyes! the galaxy in his eyes.

Heres how I started, with the eyes. A sketch and filling the eyes with pastel purple and light blue and blue green and leaving out white circles for the stars

after layering the eyes, I draw the beak. and use light blue, gray and pink yellow and green as well, theyre essential to make a drawing realistic.

Then I draw the feathers around the eyes and the beak, The paper is light so I draw the dark shades first and leave out the white parts.

I work my way down by shading a layer of brown and green and a little blue and purple for the feathers

Black is always last to shade. although a layer of blue brown or violet green creats a darker shade than just using black!z8.jpg

theres a layer of color on the background!

I finish all the other feathers and background. using green and brown and orange shades around the white areas to make it look real.

The effect of the camera though has a yellowish hue to this shot.z11.jpg
I had it framed but I just put it away. I dont know where to hang this at the moment.

I hope you enjoyed and learned something.
