The Hunted by VARAKIENEN The Hunted by VARAKIENEN
A reworked and Fixed version of an Older piece.
Still one of my personal all time Faves.

It once had text, which is now whited out and drawn over.
Much more enjoyable so... Please Do.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-07-23
So dynamic with its penetrating foreshortened perception, and hence all the more intense and atmospheric. The Hunted showcases *VARAKIENEN's flawless ink work, which is prevalent throughout their gallery. Enjoy! ( Suggested by drop-asd and Featured by snowmask )

...and so, speaking of Franklin Booth.  It's in the way you did the trees, especially the one in the back...getting texture and shadow out of those lines, it's just beautifully done.  It looks like you work with a brush, mainly?  I am in awe of that talent!  Wonderful illustration...

That one was Brush and quill, Brush for the critters and plants, mostly as they are softer, and thus the softer texture, and quill for the tree with its more uniform firmness.
Remember, dont turn your Hand to make a good line.  Turn the Drawing!

VARAKIENEN Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2010
Ill do Better than that.
I'll teach you how to draw Bird wings.

First you look them up online, and not the over all shape of the wing, and the shape and pattern of the feathers each.

Look up, eagle. Owl. and falcon.
Never throw odd looking ruffled things onto a bent branch like structure and assume others wont mind if you call it a wing.
"cough...Kyo3...cough"
;)
Too many artists cop out on taking notes from real nature. Nature got it right for millions of years, dont sell her short. It only takes a few mins to look up some thing that doesnt feel right to you, and learn from the reference.
This works for feathers, wings, tree's and More.
Do it just a little hun, and you Wont feel Horrible at it for long.
wink wink. ;)

Now, go look at tree bark and feathers.
Hugz.
