Re: Parrot- WIP

I agree with Patrick. You'll notice most of my color work is muted, even if I start with a white board. My suggestion was made because you expressed concern that your color wasn't bright. I say it looks good as is.

Re: Parrot- WIP

Blown away - - - already! Even if you didn't scratch another line I would STILL proudly hang it as-is in my house!

possible to get a detail shot with the color applied?

Beautiful

Re: Parrot- WIP

OMG those colours look wonderful to me! Iridescent, metallic almost and so rich and deep - I think the black showing through in the feathers is adding to the depth.

Re: Parrot- WIP

You could take this close up right here and frame it and have a beautiful finished piece. I can only imagine how great this looks IRL

Ditto to everything already said Cathy. Isn't it time you put out a book on scratchart?
