bird ref by DawnFrost bird ref by DawnFrost
This is slightly more morbid than the other ref collection ... since the bird is dead... I DIDN'T KILL IT I PROMISE

My Aunt found it in the yard dead - we think it flew into a tree or something sine it didn't have any bite injuries from the two dogs we have.

Any way immediately thought of taking pictures of it with my phone to use as future references, along with drawing practice as a friend and I sat around for a bit sketching it before disposing it.

Thought maybe you guys could get some use out of the pictures as well so I put them together.

Sorry if anyone is offended by my opportunistic nature o-o but at least now he can in a sense live on forever in my sketch book

ADDED COMMENT
Wow ... I guess I know now how to get you all to comment, just start posting dead things lol XD no but seriously thank you for the comments and the many page views. And if any of you remember it I'd love to see any pictures made that the ref was used. =] Its a good feeling to know and see that you've helped provided something useful to other people.

You took the beauty of death and changed it so you and other beings can use the moment to create future art. Brilliant.

This is actually how most artists used to study for reference... you didn't kill it and this gives this bird a way to exist in a form well into the future. Beautiful cardinal though, bright bright boy.
