Hey Yasmina!! For my project I started from this picture. I choose a bird so that I could follow exactly your steps as I wasn't sure how to it.
What do you think? I like the frontal part, I think the head is pretty cute, I don't like the wing and the tail though, they look messy and I didn't follow their original shape.. it looksa bit like a pigeon!
For the color of the bird I used pencils and eyeshadows :/ (don't have anything else at the moment) and ink for the black strokes.
The paper is not the right one an and the quality of the picture is really low but I'm happy with the result
I really wanted to thank you for this class!!! I haven't been drawing anything since I was a kid, and I didn't remember how much I enjoyed it!!
