20-07-20 – Red Kite WIP

It has been a while since I updated this one, but I have been hard at work at it nonetheless. I’ve finished mapping out the entire composition and have begun working on filling in the colour and detail.

As it happens, I wasn’t intending to work on both sides of the main body (the “shoulders”, if you will) but I worked one up and thought it would make for a very striking work in progress shot if I worked the other side up too: so I did! There’s still a bit of tweaking on them that I’d like to do, particularly in the tone. There are areas which need to be darker and less detailed, such as under the head and up around the leading edge of the top wing. But I’ll worry about that next time.

For now, I’m very happy with the progress, and my next task on this one is to work up the top wing and start to bring that one to completion.
