I always knew those birds were too perfect to be real! This one looks kinda broken, though... hopefuly someone will repair him soon! :D He has a little mechanical butterfly friend, as it seems :)
This was fun to paint - it looks the artist block which troubled me almost all the summer is finaly gone.
Reference for the peacock (for the non-mechanical part, of course :D): [link]

This is also good, the the way the cogs and gears poke out of the bird's neck looks rather strange but cool, looks like one of those strange 3d tattoos, I could imagine them spinning and buzzing backwards and forwards as the peacock moves, the  the butterfly looks incredibly pretty!

You know this is amazing :) it made me speechless when I saw it actually
But I still wonder how you painted those small hair-looking feathers on its neck with watercolour!
