Night bird by Dianae Night bird by Dianae
:star:!!!! FULL-VIEW !!!!:star:

For :iconsaimain: , who won 2nd place in the Fall Contest, ex-aequo with =ei-en :)
She requested me to paint her character Morgan. You can see Morgan here :

I hope she'll like it :)

Photoshop CS3
Wacom Intuos 3A4
11 hours
I used Adele's paintings as references for Morgan's face features.
I took some freedom with the lighting to make the face stand out. So please avoid the "oh the lighting is off" comments ;) I know how to make lighting look right but I felt that it would look better this way :)

EDIT !!! I've fixed the ears (they were a bit too long) and added some grain the the picture. Still, all the details on the feathers and hair are lost due to the jpg compression, I've tried PNG but it's even worse. I think that photoshop doesn't like this kind of images :( It makes them look much darker and less detailed than the original painting.

PREVIOUS VERSION for the ones who are interested in seeing it : [link]


I'm done with contest prizes now ^^

Morgan is ©Saimain.

I love everything about this piece, from the slightly dangerous look on his perfect face to the detailing in the feathers and how you used lighting to make the face stand out, as you said. A real feeling of personality and depth emerges from this work.

The wings seem soft as they surround him, but he is perfectly clear and staring out at the audience. Truly magnificent!

Hello! I really absolutely love this and I've read your FAQ and that you allow personal use for your art. AND I WOULD WANT TO MAKE THIS MY WALLPAPER, but sadly, the full view has a watermark =( Could I have a copy that doesn't so I could use it as my wallpaper? =D

I love all your art!!
