I've got a sketch to be uploaded soon - not near a scanner. These are just my primary reference images for the sketch I've been working on.
Honestly, I went through about ten terrible ideas for both "quiet" and "loud.
In this one, am trying to play with echoes between the spikey textures of wings and petals. But my work is always stylized/lazy within an inch of its life, so the bird basically looks like the Twitter logo :p
Hoping for some feedback after I scan this thing in. It probably needs the help! Thanks!
Okay, here goes. I may have overused the Roughen filter (uh, just a tad), but it seemed appropriate!
