Bird is the Word by malta Bird is the Word by malta
Some watercolour practice done last night while watching star trek. I was surprised at being patient enough to sit and do all the feathers!

A cookie to whoever can name the species.

Watercolours touched up in Photoshop

Good lord lovely, your watercolour stuff is just blowing me away <3
Love that face in particular, it looks so real! Feather detail is just so omnomnom (and apologies for not being around much, MSN won't let me sign in for some reason <:C!)

Yay well done! Web-cookie for you C: I'd never heard of them before but they're so beautiful. I love their feather neck ruff, when it's all puffed up it looks like an afro xD

Can I guess at the Egyptian vulture although I'm not highly educated about birds that are outside of Australia.
