I was trying to decide what to do for my sketchpaint today when someone sent me this image of a green bird they were using as their desktop background. I thought it would make an excellent texture and color study so I used it as a reference - though I didn't maintain the original colors. I'm rather happy with how it turned out! Took a little over an hour to do.
Oh and for those that don't know, here is some pimpage for my art blog. I upload some things there that don't see the light of day here on DA. [link]
