;u; I should use textures more often. Lol.
Anyywaaays.
Yay! First real art since a long time, it seems. I think even over summer vacation I was doing mostly colored sketches.
Ah, and about this one...it started out as a drawing in my sketchbook because I really wanted to draw a guy with a giant turle-neck type thing, which developed into a scarf, that I added rips and tears into because I just really like drawing torn cloth...and giant boot cuffs, poofy sleeves, tights, tunics, and pirate tails. :> The cardinal was added after scanning the original traditional sketch in cause I thought his hand looked awkward and incomplete all held out like that with nothing in it. XD

Uwaaah...it feels like I haven't drawn this style of clothes on people in forever, like I used to all the time. Lately it's been hoodies, T-shirts or no shirts.

Oh, also! I'm thinking of doing a mini series of drawings with themse like this. Like, another guy dressed in a similar fashion, except with cold colors and holding a blue jay. And another, holding a canary, etc etc.


EDIT: Woops! Almost forgot to credit-

I really like the pose and colours of this! The whole "silhouette" (boy, bird, scarf..) looks very nice.
