Sydney's Zoo - Bird Balloons



I'm really really liking this technique. I think I might do all of 'Sydney's Zoo' in this manner.



Does her green dress get too lost in the grass? I could make it more of a yellowish green. Dare I say 'pear green'?

it is the combination of green and orange hues that strikes me most about this one - i wouldnt change a thing!

Thank you, Artandghosts. I was working on an analogous color scheme but also trying to use colors that are naturally occuring. If that makes sense to anyone who isn't me...

I wouldn't change it either. Can you explain the technique a bit more? I'm so interested in this.

Absolutely. I drew the picture on regular ole sketch paper and then scanned it. Then, I painted in the colors using photoshop the same way I'd use a paint brush. lights and darks and blending and different brush shapes.
The birds I drew in Illustrator and ported them over to photoshop.
