YEAR OF THE ROOSTER WIP

Actually its a good time for a theme with chicken and roosters - especially because the year of the rooster ends 2017. good enough of a reason to have a closer look at the chicks.

its cool to take the reference - photography yourself, especially if you have an idea for the theme and you are guessing which perspectives and viewpoints could be suitable for the artwork:chickenrooster

rooster

the photography of the rooster is the template for a sketch with pen and paper. the legs are not ideal, so the perspective of the sketch and the final emboridery will be different:

FLAMINGO WIP

so the flamingo embroidery still wasn't perfect although the sketches were nice and lively on paper. but it is sometimes difficult to port the style of the sketches into the pattern. so here is another try to get the originally cartoon bird onto textile, without loosing to much of its appeal.

the original sketch:

and the actual template covering the original idea a bit better:
