Xray Soar

Last week’s prompt was “xray”. So many possibilities. I admit I waited a week to see this week’s prompt to narrow the field: “soar”. Hm. The consensus in the household was that combining the two necessitates a drawing of an xray of a bird. My eldest, when asked to name a bird, said albatross. So here is my rendition of a radiograph of an albatross! I used a picture of an albatross skeleton as a guide, and used pixel brushes with white to sketch the xray. It helps to think of drawing the shadows, but with light, to get an xray effect (or thinking where the bone would be thickest). Dropping in a black background completes the illusion.
