R/SketchDaily 41/41: Hummingbirds

I was excited when I saw this prompt for today because I am enjoying practicing birds. I watched a video about gestural drawing last night so I decided I would start completing a few pages of gestural drawings before I work on my final piece as a warm up. I tried to capture motion in the wings because without high speed cameras, you can never actually see a hummingbird’s wings. I ended up overworking the head and it feels too tight, but I’m really happy with the wings and lower body. I’ll probably do more hummingbirds during Inktober.
