Personal Project / Digital illustration on Procreate app & Photoshop
When I was really young I remember we had hawks at home. My dad used to practice falconry with Spanish naturalist Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente, and they’d go to practice to one of the airports in Madrid, where they’d drive any bird around away from the nearby planes.
This illustration depicts the moment a gerfalcon lands into the gauntlet the falconer uses on his fist, after flying around. It’s based on a photography my dad took, and I used digital drawing techniques with Procreate app, on an iPad Pro, with some tweaks on Photoshop afterwards to highlight the texture and colors.
