Today I've another spring drawing.
But, you say, berries are autumn.
And I will answer that sometimes dry berries remain on the branches until the new season.
Therefore, crows can feast on them in the spring
I use for this artwork a photo for my friend from Golos as a reference
Sketch in Paint Tool SAI 2
Choosing a color palette
For background I use a brush from form String M to make texture stroke and good color blending
Sketching a trees and a birds in this step
With light and dark shades of gray I draw highlights and shadows and add volume to the birds
Details for trees
The right tree is further than the left one, I paint it with lighter brown colors.
And a more detailed drawing of the raven plumage (with Oil Brist 2 brush)
Time to draw sea buckthorn berries.
On the front tree, I draw them in rich colors with clear contours, and on the far tree, I only mark them with a total mass.
I want individual clusters of berries to glow.
Therefore, on a separate layer with a soft brush, I put yellow spots above each bunch, then I blur this layer and change the blending mode to Shade/Shine
I partially erase the blurry highlight so that the berries glow less intensely
And I also want to add spring freshness to the drawing.
I create a new layer, paint some colored spots on it with a soft brush, blur it and set blend mode Soft light
I also add silhouettes of distant trees to the background.
And finally color correction as always
Here is such a spring and fabulous picture I have today!
