Girl and the Heron King


Hello everyone!

It's been a busy month of painting, here's a new illustration I call Girl and the Heron King. Below are close-ups and photos of the process. 




Here are a few of my sketches. I wanted the girl to be riding a large majestic bird, a Great Blue Heron seemed like an ideal choice.


I built a model out of Sculpty, card stock, and paper towels to figure out lighting and perspective.



I did several color studies to decide what elements to use.

Thanks for visiting!
