Egrets, Regrets by Nhaar Egrets, Regrets by Nhaar
My first piece for Illustration 1. Our teacher gave us each a different kind of bird to work with, and pretty much let us do whatever we wanted with it- probably to figure out our styles and etc. I got egrets.

Painted in phoootoooshoooop.

Interesting imagery! He could be calling egrets, or egret spirits, or could be transforming into an egret, or some combination of the three. Like some sort of egret shaman. :)

great^^ The colours and the perspective^^ but there could be a bit more deepnes in the picture^^


I think you would get a great contrast and more fantastic view if you would darken the background a bit more, like in a deep dark forest...I mean the contrast of the birds and the trees would come out much better...I hope your not angry^^ Just a proposal, nothing to take serious...

I really love that picture^^

I like it. The perspective on the trees especially is really interesting, all the feathers are well defined and, well--feathery looking XD I like how you used creams and browns to shade with to keep a warm color scheme, instead of defaulting to greys :3
The color of the man's cape is almost distractingly bright red, though. I can't really focus on anything else without my eyes wandering back to the lower left corner. Maybe if you had used a darker shade of red...?
All in all, good piece <3 Keep up the good work, and good luck in class ;3

sweet. When I see this I get the feeling of "release" and "hope" for some reason.
