Gen­tle strokes

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I use a cus­tom brush I call Painty Brush [see Work­shop Brushes on p.66] to ren­der the smaller feath­ers cov­er­ing the bird’s body. This ta­pers out and sim­u­lates a real paint­brush. In­deed, this works well for th­ese par­tic­u­lar feath­ers, which I gen­er­ally treat more like fur. I ap­ply small strokes, adding more tex­ture to the ar­eas where shadow meets light, and mak­ing small dark up­side down V-shapes to add shad­owed ar­eas.
