Ana, i really like the way you've handled the feathers here. not a lot of detail, but just enough change in shade and depth to make them look... well... feathery! good work, as always.
Artist Reply: Thanks Raven, I really had fun with this. Living with several feathery friends, I have discovered that unless you are right up close to them (with in a few inches) you really do not see all the individual feathers. I am glad this came across as feathery rather than leathery. LOL!
