Re: "Elegance" - WIP

Thanks Patrick! I really do appreciate your encouragement and great comments and I hope to continue to keep doing scratchboard and improving as I go along!

Thanks Birdlover am glad you like it!

Thanks for the great comment Christobel!

Ok I lied I still have not mixed any greens yet Still with the blues.

I am close to starting some of the iconic feathers! I actually found it quite difficult to do the fluffy feathers on the head because of the lighting! Hopefully they look ok and I still need to colour them

The update



When I take a picture I am losing the purples I put in the highlighted parts of the body

All C and Cs are welcome and thanks for looking!

Re: "Elegance" - WIP

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the comments!

I is really weird how depending on the lighting how the green changes it is quite confusing especially when taking a picture.

This is looking fantastic so far, great composition, great coloring. I'm sure the finished product will be amazing, I'll be watching.
