Happy Thanksgiving!! // Autumnal Turkey

Last weekend I was asked to create a very seasonal turkey illustration for a US client...

I kept the colours very seasonal but still vibrant, and I experimented with lots of feather textures to create his huge fantail.

The design required a traditional pattern with corresponding autumnal elements for a border design. I painted this using only browns and greys, and later added in a little more colour digitally.

I ended up having two different versions for his head - I felt the first was too cute and subtle so I made sure that the second shows his profile and details of his wattle much better.
