This is me finally putting into practise a specific technique I want to learn to use. The yellow pencil was drawn, scanned in and coloured separately. The rest is just blue pencil and watercolour with some digital changes to tweak colour/value.

noaasanctuaries: Piracy on the open ocean!  Parasitic jaegers…

Piracy on the open ocean! 

Parasitic jaegers get their name from their habit of pursuing other birds and forcing them to drop their catch so the jaeger can take it. Also known as Arctic skuas, these birds breed in the Arctic then migrate south along coastlines. Here, a parasitic jaeger is pursuing a laughing gull near Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.
