Search images and paint! - student project

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. 

The result:

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!!
