The Weekly Birdbath for Dec 4th - 10th

December 4th - 10th


One of the most enjoyable things here on Aviary is watching artists reinvent themselves as they begin to learn a new app. One such artist is miafrand. We have all fallen in love with Maria's collage-style Phoenix images, but now she has found her voice in Raven. Wow, just look at the minimalist line drawings she's creating! Perfect proportions and strong bold lines create forms that show us another side of this talented artist. All of this and she's just beginning. We can't wait for more! A few of our favorites:

This week's challenge is brought to us by Bisowski. She asked us to make some snowflake themed images using any of the apps. In terms of rules, the sky's the limit as long as the creation pertains to snowflakes. Definitely check out the post for all the great submissions! Here are a few of our faves:

Raven tutorial: How To Make a Bubble Tree by the super talented jeffdoute. Even if you don't want to draw a Christmas Tree, this tutorial is well worth a read for anyone interested in picking up some tips about vector art.

Tip - Randomize Beats

Many of you probably have seen and played with the Randomize All Beats function in our online music creator, Roc. It's good for getting started when you're not sure what you want to create, but it can be a bit chaotic with so many random beats. An easier to manage Randomization feature can be found in the track option menu. Choose Events>Randomize Events to only add beats to that individual track. It's a great way to get inspiration for the rest of your beats!
