The edge of the flock

ImagineFX - - In Depth Realistic Feathers -

Edge con­trol is highly valu­able when it comes to sug­gest­ing life and move­ment. If all of your edges are crisp, your paint­ing will seem life­less and stiff. I spend some time ad­just­ing the edges of each bird’s wings, so that some edges be­come “lost” and im­ply a blur caused by move­ment. It’s a sub­tle ef­fect, but can make a huge dif­fer­ence.
