because it is the bane of my existence to see artists who don’t even TRY to get bird anatomy right, when they’ll gladly put forth the effort to learn mammalian anatomy

BIRDS ARE SO EASY TO DRAW

THERE ARE NOT MANY MOVING PARTS ON THEIR FACE

NOT LIKE US SQUISHY MAMMALS

still debating if I should make my own HOW TO DRAW WINGZ ref or just link to some good ones I’ve seen, since there are a plethora of both good and god-awful tutorials out there for wings already. I’ll probs make my own because other guides neglect to mention that GASP DIFFERENT BIRDS HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPED WINGS BECAUSE THEY FLY DIFFERENTLY

THIS IS AWESOME BUT JUST ONE NOTE

Almost all birds are capable of moving their upper beak, aka prokinesis, it’s just that parrots have the most obvious degree of it.  prokinesis is the movement of the beak at the point at which it is hinged to the skull of the bird.

There’s like a million different types of kinesis to do with the beak/rhamphotheca/whatever but yeah, parrots aren’t the only ones :D

I can’t find any good pictures to demonstrate but yeah, it’s present in almost all birds.  Loons and ducks are good birds to look at c:

I was looking for this! I will reblog it this time so i don’t have to try and track it down again.

here’s that color tutorial some of you have been asking for! this is super wordy, but I promise everything I wrote is important (and I could write more, color theory is so complicated man) sorry for the terrible design, believe me the graphic design side of me is cringing too

JOINTS IN MOTION

As said by IFL science

Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.

How to do the searchy thingy:D

quarantinedideas:

I don’t know how many people knows just how much freaking easier it’s gotten to research stuff(art in this case) over the years, i really appreciate it when someone gives me a heads up when they see my art floating around on other pages, on other sites… Sometimes bold enough to even try and crop out my signature, but i am fortunate enough to have more nice people spread the word by linking back to my DeviantArt(or one of my other sites) than the aforementioned Art Croppers.

ANYWHO!
Lets say you made a pretty popular thingy, oh look, all i had to do was put in the key words and i found an entry:D
image

Turns out this site was cool enough to link directly back^-^

Regardless, Sometimes it’s not that easy, sometimes you absolutely need to know where a picture originates from and no mater how many notes or comments you sift through, you just can’t find that sweet sweet information-_-
Well this might help!! start by right clicking the picture and hit [view image]
image

Now that the image is all alone in the alleyway, you snap that baby’s address up top.
image

Then you slamm-a-jam that junk in the google macheen.image

Enter that shiz in, and then click on the “Search By Image” link.image

And finally, reap the reward of knowledge!!!*0*image

So there ya go, if ya didn’t know before, now you do!^o^ This is an amazing way to find out where your art has been(fun for looking up all the horribly mean commenters the internet has to offer), or how to find out who made that random picture that you absolutely love(heck, i found a book series i kinda want to read now because i was looking for the artist who made the cover art and ended up learning about the author and the book as well).

But don’t be sad if it doesn’t work, i’ve seen it pull up different information from the same picture because it was from two different urls, and a few urls won’t even activate the “search by image” link so it’s not 100% reliable.

Hope this helps you lovelies out there, if you like the A.T. fan-art i made, and want to see more.. well you know how to find that stuff now;P


OH and the Adventurer’s Creed is on sell now at my friends Etsy among a couple other posters of my art:]
