Magpie by zetallis Magpie by zetallis
Here's something kinda different. A digital painting I did for a class. It's a magpie.. um that's it really >.>; I attempted realism but then got bored, tired and gave up lol. Heavy use of references though sadly I don't know where they came from.. it was an old file I found on my comp from ages ago. Done in photoshop.

It looks like it's a tropical bird,but magpie lives with firs,birches,aspens and other trees.But cuz of this unreality it's much more interesting for looking)

Magpies is one of our most common birds around where I am, especially so as they don't migrate during the winter. Because I see it so often, I can easily start thinking about how neat it would be to have other 'exotic' birds in my environment without realising that the magpie is actually a very beautiful bird. Black and white with a taint of green and blue shining gently on its back feathers.

I am writing this because this image reminded me of the same thoughts. It's very pretty.

I like the level of realism. Just real enough to be quite stunning, but just enough room to play and add a bit more personality. And he's all poofy like he's chilled. Which just makes it cuter :D

This is amazing! I moved to British Columbia last August, and I fell in love with the magpies here from the moment I saw the first one. Now to see it on an awesomely-done digital painting! I really like how the magpie itself is realistic, and the background goes more and more simplistic the farther back it is. It really brings out the magpie.
I must say, I envy your skills. I wish I could give the magpies as good a tribute as you have.
