Kiwi Bird stickers!

After nearly a year and many abandoned sketches later, I’ve completed another two sets of stickers for LINE Messenger! Kiwi Birds features a flock of the chubby and flightless birds from New Zealand, doing unusually colourful things and trying their best to fly.

Today’s continuation of the simple line drawings from yesterday, this time with lighter-coloured outlines and animals, while staying with the same palette as before. It’s getting a bit closer to the look I was going for, but not quite there yet. Will experiment further tomorrow.   Top Canary:   Curled Cat:

Birds, birds, birds!

green bird web

I like drawing birds. They’re rounded, colourful, and comes in many (rounded) shapes and sizes. They have a lot of personality. They can be silly and clumsy, or regal and elegant. I did this one last week, and it’s a bit of silly and a bit of regal: I’m not sure what the issue is …

Raven

I don’t really remember where I took this photo but it was during my visit to Canada last year. The tangle of branches makes the image look like a stained-glass piece.
