Peppy Portrait Finished!!

I finished this last night. I am really quite pleased with it.

I had a bit of trouble with his head as the picture wasn't too clear, but I think I rescued it okay.

Let's hope his mummy likes him!

Peppy Portrait Step 4

Well, most of his lower half done now. Really it's just his pretty little head and a bit of tidying up to do.

I am so pleased with how this is turning out!

Peppy Commission Step 3

Bit more work done on his body again. It's turned out to be a lot harder than I thought to capture the plucked effect of his torso, especially as I have chosen to do it on quite rough cartridge paper so I can't get rid of all the white patches in the grain. Oh well...

I have also started on the feathers. I love the green against the pink.

Peppy Commission Step 2

Bit more done on his little pink body. Worried ts gone a little purple here but that's how the reference pic is.

Peppy Commission Step 1

I have finally made a start on my commission of a lovely ladies pet parrot Peppy. Bless him - he's had a really hard life and used to pull his feathers out in distress, so he looks a little odd and like a plucked chicken, but his little face is gorgeous.

I hope I can do him justice!

Prismas on heavy weight cartridge paper: Not much to see at the moment but the shape is there!
