This was a commission for an awesome person's 21st. It was completed back in September but we were keeping it a surprise until the big day.
I had such an awesome time painting this. I was given free reign and had great fun including all the little things, like the hat or the eyes on the kite. It was printed and professionally framed and it looked amazing. It's really cool what a good framing job can do for a painting!
This was the first piece of art I did on my new tablet, actually. The birds are Australian Magpies and are some of my favourite feathered critters. They have so much personality and they're complete dorks.
I'm not requesting critiques on this one because it is finished, printed and framed and I won't be working on it again but still feel free to point out any areas I could improve on - I'll use the knowledge for future works.
Otherwise, thank you so much for any comments, I appreciate hearing everybody's thoughts!Time:
