Last week I added a new art tool to my collection: an iPad Pro and Apple pencil (stylus). In order to practice with the tools I gave myself a goal of one fantasy bird drawing a day for a week. I came up one day short (Thanksgiving made things tricky) but I’ve loved working on the birds. The tablet/stylus/app combination feels very natural to me and I can see myself using it a lot of experiment with roughs, sketching and layout.
Part of the fun was coming up with wild plumage colors for some familiar birds, so here is an 8.5″ x 11″ PDF of the spectacled owl for you to print out and color in however you like. (Click on the text link to download.)
