Northern Red Bishop by SunStateGalleries Northern Red Bishop by SunStateGalleries
Edit: Better scan!

Hooray! Another bird, I went through an entire process to get this guy painted, and even still ended up with anatomy mistakes :C Oh well, I am pleased with the colors and lighting.
Lovely reference photo from :iconfriendfrog:
I plan on uploading the "creative process" a little later. Been working a lot recently!!

Enjoy!

Wow, what a stunningly coloured bird! You've really captured the likeness of the eyes and beak in this one. The feather shading at the neck really catches my eye too ^^

I agree! Those were my focus, aside from the eye (:

Oh, I love the colour combination! The green works awesome as a contrast to the orange! And the splashes are great. I think it's quite a challenge to paint feathers with watercolours ( I painted some birds myself), but you did a good job :) But my favourite part is the beak!

Beautiful! I love it. :la: I knew it'd be great when I saw the WIP on FB, but this looks even better than I thought it would. Well done. :dummy:

Ah, if everyone was perfect there'd be no fun to anything. ;) I think it looks great, nevertheless! :D
