Painted Feathers

I usually stick to complimentary colours but this time I wanted to try something a little different. Primary colours in the foreground and secondary colours in the back/midground. 

I think it ended up looking like something from an arcade game at a fair or something. Those where you have to shoot metal birds. I liked the idea of having a target behind them. We have a saying here "Shooting the parrot" which means something like taking the prize or having made a good deal.

Wow, this is some incredible detail.

By any chance, did you take inspiration from the Legendary birds?

Huh. Interesting.

Despite growing up with Pokemon and loving it I've become a complete Pokemon noob. I wouldn't have known about those birds if you haven't just mentioned them. 

I actually got inspired by the colours. I think, and feel free to correct me if this is wrong, that it was in the high renaissance art where they used primary colours as well to highlight important characters. 
I remember this painting, a story from, I think, the Bible, with two women fighting over a child demanding the king to decide who's the true mother. The King orders his knight to cut the child in half so they can each get a part. One of the women screams to make him stop and tells him the other woman can get it. So the king knows she's the true mother because she was willing to give up her child so it could live. 

In the picture every less important character was wearing clothes with a secondary colour. But the true mother, the king and the knight were each earing primary coloured clothes making them stand out among the crowd.

Thank you ^^
Those feathers made me lose my patience multiple times though. But compared to my old swan I think I have improved a bit regarding drawing feathers. 
Torekdva's avatar
Yes definitely. You're shading in general has gotten a lot note realistic :)
