Animal print is such a fun prompt, there are so many amazing creatures to be inspired by. To find my inspiration, I google image searched the words 'beautiful animals' and browsed through the pictures. One of the images that I saw was of a gorgeous green and yellow budgie.
Budgies, or their full name of Budgerigars, are an Australian native parakeet, which a very popular pet birds. I remember when I was young, that my Nana and Granddad had a blue and white budgie called Chippie. Budgies are also very good at learning to speak, and I remember that Chippie had learned a few words. I particularly remember him saying 'pretty boy'.
I chose to depict two colours of budgies, the blue and white ones and the yellow and green ones. The sideways gradient captured the colours. I then added the three dots that appear on their chin. I added some free hand fuzzy lines to represent the black feathered lines around their eye and head. I really love how they turned out.
And just how awesome is this little budgie? He is a very rare bird with both the blue and the green colourings.
