The Once Upon a Flock blog tour continues!
I love being an illustrator because folks give me assignments that I might never have tried to tackle on my own.
Today's creative challenge is a spectacular living masterpiece:
Kylee Baumle's Silver Laced Wyandotte, Violet.
Kylee wasn't sure which of these ladies is in fact Violet, so I chose that elegant form in the background.
First, to capture those voluptuous curves.
Then, to make sense of that wildly graphic feather pattern.... I began with black, then carved the white pattern. A bit of shading, and that rich red face....
And here's Violet! ....Makes me want a Silver Laced Wyandotte of my very own.
Now, please head on over to OUR LITTLE ACRE to meet Violet and to win yourself a copy of ONCE UPON A FLOCK!
Here's the full list of the fantastic and unique blogs on my tour -- Enjoy!
