Decorah by pallanoph Decorah by pallanoph
Oh yes, here we have another pencil rendered sketch commission that grew a bit out of control, if you will... ^^; This is *kiki-doodle's winged unicorn character, Decorah. Was a blast to draw! And feathers... I have so many feathers to draw in the near future, you don't even KNOW. So this was good practice for sure. :lol:

I don't study wing anatomy as well as I'd like to, since every time I go hunting through my books and references, I can't find the exact pose I'm looking for. Then I get lazy (or crazy?) and give up, making up the rest on my own. I may be finally getting the gist of the feather layout, though.

Anyway! *kiki-doodle, I hope he looks alright!

They are ! *so wondrous* if this was "good practice" then I marvel at the thought at what your art will look like as you get even better !

I LOVE the way you did the wings. LOVE. :D
And such a cool, action-y pose, too. Very energetic!

There's a couple of photographers on DA I follow who do a lot of bird photography that you could use as a reference.

They're :iconwyld-art-photography: and :iconfrancoborsiwildlife:.

I particularly recommend Borsi because he's good at getting wings at a variety of angles and positions.
