Red-Winged Blackbird Marker Illustration

red-winged-black-bird-imageIt was fun to practice a bird illustration with my Copic Markers.  This is a Red-Winged Black bird hunched down on top of a Sorghum plant. When using the darker marker hues on the bird, I was careful to include lighter highlights.  Also, when I added the first gold marker to the background, the value was too light. I decided to add a taupe marker right on top. This created a better value against the bird and the two different marker hues added more interest to the background.
