Toucan Play

As my first attempt at digital painting, Toucan Play succeeded in helping me better understand photoshop brushes. Being one of my most time consuming 2D projects to date, by creating this piece I learned techniques that I could use in the future to make digital painting faster and easier. The painting is based off of a photograph I had taken of a Collared Aracari. I only used two tools to create this work: the brush tool and the smudging tool. Overall I was very pleased with how the painting turned out. Toucan Play has opened new possibilities for my artwork in the future.
