A blog showing the beauty of Wildlife and History together in a land named Almeida, in Portugal.

 

Sketches done for studying purposes. I have the idea of making a tutorial for paws, so I’m studying them in order to understand better my method and explain it to you guys. Also there is a puma paw there :p

In the meantime enjoy the result ;)

Also the Natrix maura pic scanned. It has better quality this way.

Another sunset in Almeida, Portugal. I find the sunsets here insanely beautiful. For many years I lived in areas that were polluted and sunsets looked more brown-ish or dull looking, and not as clear as this. Enjoy.

Quinta da Regaleira is an estate located near the historic center of Sintra, Portugal.

The land that is now Quinta da Regaleira had many owners over the years. It belonged to the Barons of Regaleira, a family of wealthy merchants from Porto, when it was sold in 1892 to Carvalho Monteiro for 25,000 réis. Monteiro was eager to build a bewildering place where he could collect symbols that reflected his interests and ideologies. With the assistance of the Italian architect Luigi Manini, he recreated the 4-hectare estate. In addition to other new features, he added enigmatic buildings that allegedly held symbols related to alchemy, Masonry, the Knights Templar, and the Rosicrucians. The architecture Manini designed evoked Roman, Gothic, Renaissance, and Manueline astyles. The construction of the current estate commenced in 1904 and much of it was completed by 1910

And here is the fourth part of the bird beak tutorial and we’re back on schedule with the tutorials. Exceptionally 2 tutorials on the same week to make up for the lack on last week.

This follows the other 3 tutorials, you can see them here in these links, if you haven’t already:

Bird beak tutorial 3

Bird beak tutorial 2

Bird beak tutorial 1

Anyways, this will be the last bird beak tutorial for a few weeks. There will be more, because as I said before, bird beaks are hard and there is a lot to look for, and stuff.

However I need to take a pause, otherwise it will seem I won’t be taking into consideration the other requests you guys made, and also I want to avoid making everything look so bird oriented. Different subjects will be coming out soon, but the birds will return. :p

All the support is welcome, so reblogs, likes and follows is very much appreciated. Thank you all! CHEERS!

Oh look Hello Kitty Bics. Aren’t these the best? Anyway, it works just like the others. Here is a bic sketch of a NAtrix maura, a Viperine Water Snake, a very common snake in Portugal (and nice one too, never bites). They have their eyes turned upwards, and have keeled scales.

Hello everyone

Here is the third part of the beak tutorial. Sorry for the delay but last week was MADNESS. This one turned out to be short because I didn’t want to jump into the next part, otherwise it would end up being HUGE.

For the previous tutorials, you can visit these links:

I hope these are being useful to you in anyway, and reblogs and likes are very much appreciated. Thank you all :)
