I think I’m ready for summer. The cold was fun in December, but now that it’s January I’m over it. Scrolling through Pinterest a week ago I came upon a really awesome Flamingo illustration by Neil Schrubb. I love the bright colors of this piece! It makes me feel like summer is already here.
Naturally, I thought I would do something similar. I drew up a couple flamingos, digitalized them, and then colored them. I have never used neon colors before, so it was fun to experiment and play with them to find the right level of brightness.
I also wanted them to be used for Valentine’s Day. How many flamingo’s do you see on Valentine’s cards? Practically none right? Why not something different? I get tired of the same old monkeys and puppies. So, I created flamingo love birds. What I really love is how their necks make a heart shape when they are put together. So cute!
