Scribble Picnic: Bird

'fairy bird healer'

closeup 2
This week's Scribble Picnic is bird. This piece is not quite finish as I think I need to work more on the overall coloring. As I said in the previous post, this piece and the other one here might be part of a alphabet series. For more Scribble Picnic, go here.

  1. I'm trying to figure out the story behind the picture.

    1. not much of a story, just an injured bird and a little fairy there to help it along the way while the mother bird watches. that's it.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    2. just added another closeup as I just realized the image is not large enough and not everyone clicks on it for a larger view.

    1. actually, I almost didn't do this as I started out a few drafts and they didn't like how it look and I was thinking of abandoning it and then I somehow start on it again and somehow got to this point.

      isn't motivation strange? one moment I just didn't even have any motivation to do it and the next, I'm working on it as if I have to finish no matter what. there's still more work to do but it looks good to me.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  3. I'm always fascinated with your work. Since I only deal in watercolor or pencils, I wonder what technique you use for your wonderful pristine illustrations.
    I love them all. The cuddling the baby bird is precious.

    1. I used Adobe Illustrator software which can be a bit frustrating because you do have to know the tools to create something but I think anyone can learn how.

      even at this stage, I still like to add shading to this piece using Adobe Photoshop, so this piece is not finish.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  4. I can only imagine how magical you will make this onece you add the photoshop shading but what you have here is a great start. It is fun too seeing the development of this from where it was last week, with the fledgling baby bird etc and that fascinating lamp that actually looks like on in my work office when there! haha. this is great, Lissa, and waht a curious looking bird. Again, so imaginative. Thank you so much for taking all this time to add this to our picnic. Great job.

    1. you think that umbrella-structure above her is a lamp? I guess it could be but my idea is really just a shade to keep the sun or rain out.

      there is no continuing story from the previous piece, just they both involves little fairies, at least, there is no thought of anything continuing.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  5. I love the premise of this. Such a trusting mama bird and a sweet little one. I love birds and this is so special.

    1. I suppose there is trust there but I don't know. I just like the idea that fairies can heal and such like the magical creature they are.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  6. What a clever idea, Lissa. I love the umbrella made of leaves and the fairy healer wings. This will make a great alphabet series. :)

    1. I think I'm going to do the series after all, I like doing it though I really ought to add a boy fairy or two.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  7. Oh my goodness, I simply love this piece. Your fairy is adorable and so good at her task, I would like to meet her. I would love to see this when you complete it.

    1. now that I think about it, it looks good like this without shading, I like the clean look, maybe I'll just add some subtle shadows here and there.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  8. Fun birds! Too bad the little one is hurt (white bandaid on its head?), but looks like it is in good hands.

    1. maybe I need to work more on the bandage/bandaid as it doesn't quite look like it. it's suppose to be on the little bird's wing.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

    2. Oh, the bandage is fine, and I completely see it being on the wing now–don't know why I thought head at first.

  9. Lovely piece for this week's Picnic theme, Lissa. Such a sweet baby bird being healed by the fairy while the mother looks on. Pretty colours too.
