ANOTHER of my bird creatures. My scanner wasn't working at the time I drew a bunny bird on paper... so instead of scanning it in and colouring it on Photoshop like I usually do, I drew the whole thing on computer. I did the fur using the 'smudge' tool on photoshop. If you want to do the same, just draw your head/body/whatever, dodge and burn it (using the dodge and burn tools), and then start smudging your picture (I recommend duplicating the layer that your picture is on first, so if you don't like how it looks, you can try again). Start smuding at the edge of your picture, using 'stroking' lines. Then start smudging from areas closer and closer to the center. ...Sorry, this is just an extrememly brief tutorial, so I don't think it will help much. But I hope it does anyway. The fur was probably the easiest thing. The hardest was doing a rough outline first, and shading the beak and feet. I wasn't sure what the best way to shade the beak and feet was... I didn't want them too dark, but I wanted some contrast, so... well, now I think they look like jelly.
Mmm... jelly. *eats the beak. The bunny bird runs away before I can eat its feet too*.
