My bird drawings

Hi everyone, thought I would share some photos of my recent bird drawings. I'm currently exploring a scribbly style of drawing using pen and pencil. Would love some feedback :)

I love these!

I like this 'scribbly' style :t: very interesting, and reminiscent of really old growth gums (and strangely old discarded rolled up fencing wire too! :) .....

I'm no artist of any sorts by any stretch of the imagination! (though know a few), nor critiquer, but I like the Blue Tit, and especially love the last one :cool:

The Major Mitchell is good too - your work seems to convey a soft femminity. The budgie seems a bit caricaturish - not sure if that was part of the style you were after?, but I much prefer the more realistic looks ..... though that works too, and has its own unique loveliness.

To my uninformed creative self, I imagine this scribbly style is hard to do? Well done :t: Excellent ! Keep going and let this style flow o:D

Just so the shoe has a go on the other foot - here is a biro drawing I did a while back from one of those kids 'learn to draw books' --- haha! Could be an entirely new species of Falcon for the experts to id ! :-O

Oh my word, they are fantastic! I especially like the Blue Tit. :)

Thank you so much Chosun! I really appreciate all of your comments. That's the kind of look I was going for, something that resembles wire or branches etc... I agree, the budgie is a bit more illustrative than the other ones, not quite what I planned. No, this scribbly style isn't really hard to do and I find it much more relaxing than other styles of art I've tried.

I love your Falcon, I think he looks great! Something about blue pen that always appeals to me.

Thank you BirdNerd! I was particularly happy with how the Blue Tit turned out :)

Quite impressive and some fine pieces of artwork.

Lovely stuff! An interesting but effective technique.

Many thanks for posting them.
