Take a Word--Exotic
Another fascinating theme this week. I find, as I evolve as a digital artist that I enjoy the "theme" challenges far more that the ones where the image is provided. I am learning to take a theme and run with it, thinking and creating outside the box...It's certainly harder, but more fun!
So here are my Exotic Birds.
The white Peacock is a public domain image from Wikimedia; the bird of paradise flower is a botanical image altered a bit with blending modes and layering.
The background was made with many bits from Jerry Jones, who is the person behind Skeletalmess, Shadowhouse Creations and My Second Skin Collections. He generously shares his amazing textures, brushes and tutorials with everyone. If you don't know this guy's amazing work, check him out!
Other bits from Witchy13's Dirty Grunge Papers collection.
