[CO] Bird Woman

The parrot mother awaits the return of her children.

The parrot mother knows they will return.

The parrot mother loves them even though they are gone.


Hi Everyone!

I've been a while without updating my blog, I took a vacation, but I'm back. the drawing that I present today is to participate in the "Fantasy Art Contest" sponsored by @ntopaz. The theme is a bird woman. She is the mother of green birds. It is not a very easy drawing due to all the hair feathers, but it was fun to do all those details.

This drawing is inspired especially by the bird called parrot. The parrots are characterized by their robust and curved bill, their prehensile legs and the plumage of intense colors with predominance of green.

I still practice digital drawing in ibispaint, and I really like to work there, it's almost like using colored pencils, but instead I use my fingers and some application tools that do magic.


Then the step by step of the drawing

Step 1: I made a sketch on a sheet of white paper, took a picture of the sketch, imported the image into the application, created a new layer and redrew over the imported image.

And here is the sketch.

Step 2: In this step, add base colors.

Step 3: Realization of shadows, eyelashes, eyes, nose and lips.

Step 4: Paint the hair of feathers.

Finished drawing.

I used approximately 19 layers, to make the digital drawing.

She is beautiful but she looks a little bit scared.. I wonder what happened to her. I like that you took the inspiration from the animal world. Your adaptation is very clever and cool!

Her hair looks like fresh grass and I love the contrast of her pink lips and green eyes. You chose an amazing shade.

Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend!


Thank you very much for your comment. I apologize for how late I answered.

She is scared because her children are gone. It was fun to color this drawing, especially in digital, although it still takes me a bit to master this technique.

I'm glad you liked it.


Don't you worry please. It happens to all of us :)

Amazingly well done. Especially love the eyes...

I'm glad you liked it, painting eyes is my favorite part, that's why they look so incredible, because I work with that much detail.

Wonderful concept @francisftlp. I can totally understand that the detail in Bird Woman's hair would have called for both your time and patience. I love the way you have blended tans and light natural colours into the green of her hair, eyelashes and eyebrows too. Gives a glow of reality to your feathery fantasy.
