A local art gallery store has asked me to design some postcards that they will buy from me. :biggrin:

Here is my first rough draft.

Opinions please. Would you buy this on a postcard in a art gallery store?
Why or why not?

Oh Yay this is good! I would buy it. Will you be doing it in color?

This one is color pencil. I don't like it as much as the other, but I would still like some opinions please.

Here is another rough draft.

I love them all, but I think this one is my favorite.

You certainly have a great talent in drawing birds.

I think the first one blends in to the background too much.

I love them both though!

Thanks ladies.

I was worried about the white bird on white paper but I do prefer him without the blue.

If anyone has suggestions in would be glad to consider them.

I like them all, they are very cute (in a good way). The photos seem to be a bit dim, I'm having trouble seeing details with my aging eyes :)

The photos aren't the best, indoors at night.

This is a final draft.

I put a border on it just to see if it needs one as a postcard.

Please tell me what you think.

Here is the finished pelican. Photo is not the best, I need to scan them.

I will do one more and then get my postcards made! :vs_box:
