Ostrich - WIP04

Hi All,

Here's another update on the Ostrich.  I'm now working on the feathers under his chin and along his left side so, they still need some work.

As I mentioned before I may have to take a break on this guy soon because as soon as I get the support I ordered for my CPSA Silent Auction piece I will start working on it.

I will post my progress on the Silent Auction piece and continue to post any progress on this piece as well.

I'm having fun creating this guy... he just cracks me up every time I see him.  I sure hope I can express the feeling I am trying to get with him.

He's 16" x 16", on UArt and 100% Colored Pencil.  As mentioned before.... I'm using the Icarus heated board to blend the colored pencil.  What a great tool that board can be.... I just love!!

If you have any questions or comments let me know.  Don't forget... Keep Scribbling!!


  1. he looks great - wonderful textures and what a glow in the eyes.
    Do you work the whole piece on the Icarus, or just parts like the eye?

  2. Thanks Lene!! I use the Icarus board on the whole thing. I like how the board allows you to layer the lighter colors on top of the darker ones, so I'm using it in the feathers too.
