Cassowary colour

CASSOWARY! Real life dinosaurs…

I actually sketched this ages ago for one of my ‘sketch a day’ drawings, but wanted to revisit it and tweaked the drawing quite a bit and got some colour involved…

I did the initial sketch on the iPad Pro using the Procreate app, but ended up doing the colour in Photoshop on my iMac.

(Many thanks to Shannon Beaumont for her helpful feedback on my first pass at this one – she had some excellent colour advice! Go check out her stuff at Shannon Scribbles on tumblr…)
