A bit of a cheat today – this design wasn’t created entirely this evening. In fact, it’s about three evening’s work (see other posts from last September).
Tonight, I changed the eyebrow so he looks less angry (I actually preferred that look, but had several negative criticisms), finalised the palette using a nice scheme from Colour Lovers and added a bit of canvas texture in GIMP.
Of course, I’m not the only one doing these daily designs – check out ‘Of Science and Beauty‘ for some really nice science themed illustrations.
love it! really cool!
I’m glad you finally finished it Foom. The colours are perfect. Tho, I really liked the original eyebrow.
Thanks Birdie. In the end, I decided that people may want to use this graphic on their websites and stuff, and making the bird look ‘angry’ was a slightly contentious issue. He may actually be used at work to promote the BBC Wales Twitter feed, so that was a factor too.
That’s fair enough. I’ll miss contentious Welsh Twitter Dragon all the same. ;)
