Daily Deviation

Given 2011-07-24
This has to be one of my all time favourite vectors... a mix of creativity, high fashion and the hint of fantasy ~OwaikeO always brings to his vector work. A vector artist to drool over his entire gallery. Parrot of the East by ( Featured by ChewedKandi )

I really love this pic!  The style reminds me a little of some of Neil Gaiman's work.
The level of detail is amazing here, and I also like the nuances of hue in the character's shirt.  It gives the image an additional feeling of texture and depth.

First thing I noticed in this picture was the feathers... but then I'm a bird owner so big surprised there! I couldn't help but notice that something looked a bit odd, though, and that's when I noticed the repetitive nature of many of the feathers. I see variation, which is to say I see that they're not all copy and pasted of the SAME feather, and frankly I think it's quite creative to change the colour and size to create a sense of variation because holy-wow that would have been CRAZY intense to hand-draw each and every one of those feathers individually with that much attention to detail paid to them! I really like the colours chosen for then and their arrangement, too. Not realistic at all, but still pleasing to look at.

I also really like the shading on the clothes and skin a whole lot, though the black outlines on the lips are a little distracting. Or rather that double-line is what's distracting. The anatomy and pose make for a pleasing illustration to look at, and I love the colours chosen for this piece. All in all good job. This looks like it was a fun piece to make!

Thank you :)
in my art I aim for detail and sway away from realism. I try depict the reality buy in my own imagination. I like to explore with color.
as for the feathers, duplicating did take place, otherwise like you said I would have gone mad :D

You certainly have done a good job with developing your own style that's a great balance between reality and surrealism, I think. I also think that what strikes me about the colours is the complimentary between the reddest red and lightest blue and that the whole pallet seems to stay more or less within that range. Reminds me of a desert at twilight. Peaceful, elegant.

Regardless of the duplicating, you did a good job of switching up the colour, size, and angle, to create enough variation that it's not distracting that the feathers are duplicated. I think I see... two templates? One that's a bit more pointed with the quill off to the side, indicative of a flight feather, and then another where the quill is more centralised but still off to the side a bit indicating that it's a little off to one side or another of the body and more likely to be an inner-wing or tail feather... I have to say, if nothing else, I am impressed that you managed to NOT put the quill in the centre like so many enjoy doing!
