Realism: Blue and Yellow Macaw by Yayster Realism: Blue and Yellow Macaw by Yayster
Otherwise known as "Here's Lookin' At You, Too!"

Time for another oekaki! :love:

Oekaki PaintBBS, optical mouse, around 5 days work (I think I started it on either Sunday or Monday!)
Thanks goes to the awesome Livio Soares for permission to use the reference photo! Visit his website here: [link]

I wanted to work with some nice, bright colours for a change - so what better than blue and yellow? :)

My comp can't handle an animation for a pic this size - but what I've done is taken several WIP shots. I want to make a video out of these as I know a lot of people have asked for an animation. :) It's not as good as an animation, but I hope people find it useful! If you would be interested in seeing it, feel free to drop me a note.

Ooh, how pretty! This is one of my favorite kinds of parrots. I really like how you textured all the feathers. They look perfect with the variations in dark and light, like where they overlap and stuff.

Sorry if this is a really vague explanation... xD I like this picture.

Wow, that looks great! :wow: Can you get some good effects with a mouse on it? :) I don't use a tablet and sometimes that's a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to brush textures etc.

All I can say is... take a look at Aubrey's gallery Example: [link] all she ever used was a mouse!!
There are several mousers there and it blows my mind what they can do.. I'm sure with practice you'll find that Lascaux is the best program out there.. come give it a try!

I have practice with a mouse, I've been using one since 2002 :)
And I used PaintBBS to make this, it's a Java applet that runs in your browser. If you want to try it out, try [link] ^^

Maybe you have alot of control over the mouse and it has become second nature to you? But still...wow! I am so impressed, I didn't think it was possible.
