A Good Birb
Hello all! Taking a break from doing schoolwork to draw some digital stuff this week.
I LOVE cockatiels, but I could never take care of one as a pet, since they require a LOT of attention (lol, same), and I'm not home enough during the week.
In addition, I have a cat, and I doubt they would get along too well.

It's the polar vortex this week in the Midwest, so my art classes have been cancelled for the past three days. Was starting to get waaaaay too bored.

I used this photo as reference:…

Completed in Paint Tool SAI.  I'm trying to get more experience in Photoshop, and this piece was (personally) all I could manage to do from SAI.  I'm so tired of the limitations on that program.  I'm excited to get better.

Not opposed to critiques.

Thank you for your continued support while I am away on this art journey!
Hey everyone!

I've been a long-time user of Paint Tool SAI as my main art program, but I would really like to switch over to Photoshop in order to compete with the "big leagues".

Wondering if anyone has any tips / YouTube videos / guidance on how to make the switch? Photoshop is just so massive and overwhelming for me, that I've tried to switch before, but always find myself going back to what I know best.

(This is also my first forum post as well, so if there is any 'forum etiquette' that I am not following, please be sure to let me know!)

Thank you!

A lovely headshot of my newest character, Catori!  Will be using this as my icon / wolfhome forums avatar while I do work at college.
I am very proud of this piece -- happy to be starting my wolfy absence off on a good note.  I am getting comfortable with the consistent results of my artwork, for once in a while.
This icon is not for use by anyone other than myself.
PS:  Thanks to those who joined my stream while shading this bad boy to help keep me motivated. LOL!
