Birds and Butterflies Painting

In a previous post I showed how I painted a butterfly in Photoshop. Now it's time to display the finished painting with butterflies, birds, flowers, and all. The rest of the painting was created pretty much the same way as the butterfly, by layering and blending much as you would with real oil paints.

The main difference between most of the painting and the birds is the brushes. If you look at bird feathers closely you'll see that the finer body and head feathers actually have a texture much like soft fine fur. So I used Photoshop's bristle brushes to create the hair-like texture of these soft body feathers. It took a bit of experimenting with the brush's settings to get the look I wanted.

Here you can see a detail close-up of the resulting texture on the bluebird's throat feathers, and the icon showing the bristle brush used.

And here is the finished painting.

Because this is a digital painting there is obviously no original available. However, there are Fine Art Prints available, as well as throw pillows, tote bags, duvet covers, and iPad cases featuring this artwork.

Father's Day Gift Ideas - Deer

Just 2 weeks from Father's Day. Have you got Dad a gift yet? Is he an outdoorsman? Does he like to go deer or elk hunting? If so, I have a whole bunch of products featuring my deer and elk paintings that would make great gifts for the deer or elk hunter you know. Of course, he doesn't have to be a hunter to enjoy the beauty of these graceful and majestic animals. They make great gifts for any occasion for anyone who enjoys the beauty of nature and wildlife.

Lots and lots of products to choose from. Things for the office like coffee mugs, mouse pads, binders, desk organizers, and notebooks. Things for electronic devices like iPhone, iPad, and Galaxy cases, covers, and sleeves. Clothing and accessories like shirts and ties. Household decor items like wall clocks, throw pillows, and blankets. Sports items like golf balls, dart boards, gym bags, and backpacks. The list goes on.

Here are a few featured examples:

Whitetail buck beverage coaster

 Whitetail buck wall clock

Whitetail buck and doe iPad cover

Mule Deer buck and doe Galaxy 6 phone case

"I'd rather be elk hunting" t-shirts

 And that's just a small sample of the hundreds of products available in my Zazzle store featuring images of whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, and other wildlife art.
