Title: PNI - Lesson #17 - Ostrich Portrait
Post by: dennis on June 06, 2014, 09:06:12 PM
In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these  to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future.  Thanks

I have just completed my Ostrich, I know I am doing these out of order but I find I enjoy it more if I do my way.
The drawing is also freehand.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Wow, Helen, a fantastic job on the Ostrich.  As Val mentioned, the eye is just beautifully drawn. Apart from the basic lessons which are the foundation and are teaching the fundamentals, I too, enjoy drawing what takes my fancy and not necessarily in the order in which they are presented.

Natalie,

Cute ostrich.  I think that hairy eyeball staring at me will haunt me forever.  Great features or is it considered fur?  Whatever - it looks great.

Maryna,

I like your ostrich.  Cute little critter.  His eye seems more rectangular than round, though.

Excellent, Maryna :clap: :clap: :clap:  That straight line at the side of the eye is actually a "wiper" that periodically moisturizes the eye surface similar to a lizard.

A class a day keeps you healthy and alive! Love the big eyes of the ostrich. All renditions are very good! :D

I activated my old Rotring radiograph pens. Did this one with 0,50. The reason why I could not get the very fine tonal differences is because the 0,3 pen is clogged. I carry this pen with me now together with my drawing book.

This is my rendition. Thank you Dennis again. This class captivated me all through.

Excellent, Gita  :clap: :clap: :clap: The lower part of the eye has been filled in just a bit too much and you have lost the expression of the ostrich. All is not lost, however. With a tiny brush and some Chinese White or Acrylic White, just tip out some of the dots until you have the eye looking like the one Maryna has done  O0 Also I see you have cross-hatched in the eye instead of just dots.

Thank you so much for the feedback Dennis. I have corrected the eyes with Chinese white. It does make a difference :smiley6600:
