I wanted to do a short tutorial and found this! Indeed was short but the work that I done not, jajaja buuuut very pleasant.
This is the first image that I did.
I have to say, that the trick of: Select layer, then select the other one and fill it with black, doesn't work very well with this bird, I think that was because of the feathers and the light colors: branch, leaves, sooo....
I just trace the outlines, fill it with black and then do the eares thing, it was a little slow to do but I liked it.
The result is:
I did a second one!
Same as the bird, I trace the lines and fill them with black.
One tip: I search for 'linocut' images to see this texture(?) like dust(?) that have some prints for improve my drawings, I like how does the bird looks.
Definitely I like this art, I can see it on t-shirts and bags, maybe in illustration, specially I like the circle behind.
Thanks, for this easier tutorial! And those sites with free images!!
