Winter Cardinal by ArtofJeffHebert Winter Cardinal by ArtofJeffHebert
I was commissioned by my office to paint something for our Administrative Assistant for Christmas. It just so happens she had a lovely story about Cardinals and how much meaning they hold to her. The timing couldn't have been more perfect! I did this on my iPad over the course of about 8 lunches hoping she wouldn't peek in before it was done.

Wonderful stock photo used for reference: [link]

Do you use a stylus for drawing or your fingers?

:iconartofjeffhebert:
ArtofJeffHebert Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Great question! I tend to use a bit of both. At the begining I use my finger as I lay down the color and general shape. As I start to use smaller brushes I switch over to a stylus.

I love it. It's very convenient. The tools keep getting more powerful and the line between mobile art and desktop made digital art is blurring because of it :) I have recently started using the Wacom Companion Hybrid. That device is unreal!

This picture is like magic! Could you do a quick tutorial of how to do this on the iPad? It's a bit tricky for me.

Very pretty! I love how you've made it your own, and added the branch and snow. Also, the feathers look beautiful and soft; nice use of tone there (:

Than you so much for that, it amazes me still how effective this background seems to be. And those feathers took sooooo long to get that way lol

You're welcome!

And I'm not surprised the feathers took so long; they're a lot harder to render than fur in my opinion...

This is beautiful work! I love how brightly coloured and alive he (I'm going to call it a he :D) is, the eye really shines and helps make it convincing. Your brushstrokes are very  controlled and show you have some serious traditional art skills, and the simple but believable background ties it all together really nicely. Great work man, one of my favourites from you I think! ;)

wow! Thanks so much for that! This really was a labor of love over a two week span, I guess it shows. Thanks for noticing the background, Its actually my favorite part of this. I actually put a lot of thought into it.

No problem! It really shows. You managed to achieve camera focal blur effect of distant detail really nicely. You could almost mistake it for an actual photo, which is testament to the quality of the values in the piece! You should be very proud, you labor paid off and it will certainly be a well received gift :)
