Common Kingfisher (Digital Painting) by Rick-Lilley Common Kingfisher (Digital Painting) by Rick-Lilley
Common Kingfisher (Digital Painting)
Worked from three photos of Kingfishers, three photos for scene, two sprigs of ivy from the garden and my favourite tree root from my stock of props.
Time about 30 hours.

fantastic work, those references paid off, i can't really fault this, the colour work is lovely and the blurring of the background works really well :)

I really love the colours! So amazing, so beautiful, yet so fragile. The Kingfisher really is something special!

This is ruined a little for me because I know this photograph (the kingfisher ref) too tell, in fact I am looking at it right now. I'm not entirely sure what the other two kingfisher references you used were even for?

Great picture, nice over all effect. Ruined marginally by your custom-brush grass effect and the background looks like a photograph with a poor oil painting filter over it.

Not critique on the kingfisher itself... wait a moment why is there a wire straight line on the wing?
