Very well done. Looks almost real.
I like ducks. Ducks are fun.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 2, 2006)
not much, just some wine and butter to baste him with
davincipoppalag (Apr 2, 2006) an ugly of the brown ones...we need the pretty ones to swim around and brighten up the ponds
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 2, 2006)
that would kind of throw things off balance since the males are the ones with the pretty markings, then there would be no boy ducks to make more ducks
davincipoppalag (Apr 2, 2006)
Well then..I see lots of "squab" down on the statues in the park...hehe
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 2, 2006)
that's okay, I prefer wood ducks over mallards anyway
davincipoppalag (Apr 2, 2006)
He's very happy to hear that..

It's finished! You did a beautiful job on it. :)
Aubrey (Apr 2, 2006)
You did a really nice job on the ducky Poppa, I love ducks. They're so sweet... 'cept when you're feedin a flock of them bread crumbs and run out... lol still cute though even then.
Deino (Apr 2, 2006)
Very nicely done Dave! I like the texture :) Duck-eh!
Artiste (Apr 2, 2006)
wonderful Dave. A critique if I may: If you are going for realism, I think your colors are a little on the bright and cartoonish side, and should be toned down slightly.
davincipoppalag (edited Apr 2, 2006)
Thanks for that Artiste..but would have to see the ref..they were even brighter! It's from a photo by Apophis906 on DA

Pretty duck.... It's duck season.... rabbit season.... duck season... rabbit season.... rabbit season... duck season... *BANG*

Sorry, I was channeling Bugs for a minute.
Artiste (Apr 2, 2006)
Yea I see that the reference looks very bright, but if you break the colors down into shapes, there really is that one very bright green splotch just under the eye...
Childlike_Vampire (Apr 2, 2006)
I think what he(?) means to say is that they are a little, keep the same bright shade but tone the saturation down a bit. Not so "damn GREEN" but "definite green". I have never been to art school, so sue me if I don't know the words. :P
davincipoppalag (Apr 2, 2006)
You'll be hearing from my laywers, CV. Hehehe.. I never did art school, either.I know what you guys are saying, but..that green looked pretty close when I did it. (still does, to me...but I guess it's not).
emmamommalag (Apr 2, 2006)
It looks fine to me.. a mighty close match.
Artiste (Apr 3, 2006)
I wasnt specifically talking about only the green, but just in general about your use of color (saturation would be a good word), although I think the water also has that same look
of "blue out of the tube" (if you know what I mean). Moot point if you dont see what I mean, though.

I still think its a wonderful rendering. :)
davincipoppalag (Apr 3, 2006)
Thanks..maybe there are some differences in monitor displays and that's why it looks diff to me? I dunno

Artiste (edited Apr 3, 2006)
Dave: No I think the last version is better. The point I was trying to make was more about your general pallette, and not specifically about the green on the duck.
I suppose I wasnt clear. To be clear: I think that if you are going for realism, your pallette in general should be toned down a bit. For example, with this painting,
I look at the reference and the painting side by side, and your painting seems much brighter than the photo (overall), and this is a trait I have noticed in your
other peices as well. Specifically in this peice, in the water under the duck I see very definative greys and browns. the water is generally blue, but throughout
it are grey undertones as well. I think that its a pitfall of painting with this medium. A certain opaqueness is hard to achieve with RGB.

Youre correct in that this could be a monitor display difference... I dont know. I hope my comments are helpful.
davincipoppalag (Apr 3, 2006)
Thanks! I haven't had any art training, so I just kind of "wing it"(no pun on the bird pics intended)..I appreciate your advice, and I admire your work very much.

Wonderful draw and thanks for commenting under my work. As a newbie it is much appreciated! I agree with artiste in regards to the water. it is a bit blue. I think it depends on the effect you are going for though. For stark realism, tone it down a bit but for your own "version" then it looks great. I love color and oversaturate all my own work just for the fun of it. :)

I am an art teacher so hope u don't mind my 2 cents. My own hand and eye are very rusty on my work since I teach and don't make my own art much. I doodle around at Youdraw..i like black and white and the cjhallenge of the poor tools and stupid lil box. *L* This site is a bit overwhelming to me!
davincipoppalag (Apr 4, 2006)
I very much appreciate it gerry the art teacher. Thanks

Hey Poppa! I just stopped by your portfolio to check it out. Wow! This duck is fantastic! How do you find time for life between here and doodlebug?
Mal (Apr 17, 2006)
I like your duck Davinci , you did a good job
davincipoppalag (Apr 18, 2006)
Thanks...I have a lot of fairly sleepless nights.. so.. I come here.. or there.. or both..
laurael (Apr 22, 2006)
Whoa, dave...I think this is definitely one of my favs of yours! Beautiful, just beautiful. Great job!
