I've begun to practice my imagination and freehand drawing. Inspiration to this drawing came from a great shot of a bittern I saw in one of the photography forums about a week ago, the scene stuck in my mind.
It's not an accurate rendition of a bittern.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement!

I've begun to draw digitally with a tablet and having a great time, it takes a while to get used to but I'm getting there.
Work in progress below, will see how it turns out. :)

Oskar - really like what you're doing - refreshing to see such a lightness to the whole thing...I get so bogged down in detail sometimes.

Little bit of an update.
I saw someone mentioned the program Corel Painter so I decided to give it a try.
All I have to say is wow! It has so much better feel than Photoshop, especially the blending tools in Corel Painter are excellent.

Anyhow, this is the first thing I'm starting to work on. Photoshop could at many times feel like a struggle, this is so straight forward and plain fun.

Very nice pieces here, I especially like the bittern. It's always so interesting to see them pretend they are waving grass for camo (even if there is no grass around them!).

Most of my work of late has been scrapped, but I finally managed to pull myself together to completely finish a piece.

I have now begun to sketch in the field instead of drawing from photographs. It's very hard but rewarding.
I believe to evolve I'll have to sketch living things and trying to catch their essence, it requires more intense study of the birds and the emotional attachment to the process is enhanced.

This is a Greylag Goose that I drew from a field sketch.

I think you're completely right about the emotional attachment being enhanced. It's hard but rewarding as you say. Good luck and keep at it!

Looking good! The goose is especially nice. I haven't done much field drawing myself, so I can only imagine that it is a challenge. But a rewarding one as well...
