Budgie Expressions by Kosmotiel Budgie Expressions by Kosmotiel
I actually started working on this before Sammy passed away.
So this is kinda like a memory of him.
Sammy's the one on the middle right. My first budgie, Max, is on the middle left. All the others are just random budgies. I kinda even made up some of the bar patterns on them.

Budgies are such interesting creatures, you can learn so many expressions and feelings from them. ^^
These are drawn from observing my budgies.


I hope cockatiels are as expressive as budgies!

This drawing is beautiful. Heart  The protagonists are too funny. Can I post it on my site (to illustrate my articles about the well-being of pet birds)? Of course, with your name and the link to your site. Thank you for your answer. Friendly.

Once again AWESOME job ^.^

I LOVE Budgies ^.^ I have 2 (Green male, Blue Female) I originally wanted to name mine (Green male) "Yoshi" ^.^ but my Mom said no =p :(

Our Female is strange she likes to sound like a Duck ^^; she also does the (pupils get small) *can't think of the word* :facepalm: A LOT it's creepy sometimes LOL

I love :iconcockatielplz: s TOO ^.^ I have 3 (originally 4 :'(

ALL my birds (except my Female :iconcockatielplz: can say pretty bird (I was surprised that our Female Budgie could say it (not as well as the males of course ^^;

Sorry for the late reply, this got pushed out of my recent comments very quickly. ^^;

And why wouldn't she want your budgie named Yoshi? I think it's adorable!

I believe the eye thing is called pinning, quite a weird name but, I guess it sorta makes sense.


Yeah generally males are more talkative than females. Well it is the males who attract the females.
And budgies are better known for talking than cockatiels. They're more whistlers like my one. ^^

My Mom didn't want me naming my Budgie Yoshi because she didn't want my "obsession" in our pets names too :shrug: I dunno she's weird LOL

But even if it's not an obsession, Yoshi still sounds nice!

EXACTLY ^.^ he EVEN has a "Y" shape on the back of his head (his yellow feathers) :giggle: Somehow his feathers form a "Y" shape ^.^

Haha that's interesting.

I love how these birds get these unique patterns or markings. My cockatiel has a single white feather on the back of his neck.

My first budgie, Max had a small white patch on the top of his head, amongst the barring patterns.

do you do commissions?? it's fine if you don't, i'm just looking for someone to do a cartoon sketch of my budgie... great pic by the way :D

Kosmotiel Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013   General Artist
I don't... yet. But I've been considering to offer point commissions in the future.

Actually, I'm happy to do this one for you, as a start. 

How do you want it? Sketched, digital or traditional?

disneynumber1fan Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! Erm... digital, please. Very much similar to the style of this picture. Can you draw their full bodies?? That would be great! Here's a photo of my budgie for you to work from: tlknumber1fan.deviantart.com/a… He may appear blue in the photo, but he's actually more grey (like a diluted blue colour) How much are you willing to charge?? :)

Is is just this one budgie?
Also do want it a coloured background like this one, or one like this? fav.me/d4o6fbo


I'm asking cause I can decide the price based on that.

:icondisneynumber1fan:
disneynumber1fan Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, it's the just one. I'd like a trans background like the second picture, but not as realistic... Like I said before, I'd like it in this style, so it's quite cartoony :)

Kosmotiel Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013   General Artist
Hmm... well, for a non-background, colour, full body pic, I can offer for 100 points.

As you know I haven't offered commissions before, so if you think the pricing is unfair just let me know. I've looked at how other people commission and I think this looks pretty cheap.
You don't need to pay now, I'll do a rough sketch and if you're happy you can pay then. I'll continue and finish it off after you've paid.  

Also, do you have any more references I could use? Perhaps with more of his front showing? 
Sorry, I just like to use heaps of references.

100 sounds great! Just being curious now (not trying to be awkward), but how much would it cost for an expression sheet, like the one here, but with just my budgie?? If you get what I mean... Like his face pulling all the different expressions. Here's a photo with loads of different angles of him etc. tlknumber1fan.deviantart.com/a… Hope that's OK! Let me know if you need more. And it's completely up to you about payment! I would like to see a rough sketch before you finish, if you don't mind :)

For nine faces with a coloured background, I can charge 250 points. 


Cool that's tons of pics. He's a beautiful boy by the way!


Oh and also you'll need to be patient, I'm currently pretty busy so it'll take longer than just a couple of days.

I adore budgies (and currently have a female English Budgie and parrotlet). They are so fun and yes, expressive.
