Parrot Drawing

By Lucky978
Edit: thank you all for the positive feedback on this piece! It makes me so happy to know that you all like to see me trying different styles and things.  
For everyone who has been asking, here is a list of materials used (also partially visible in the picture):
-Base layer of watercolor (PH martin's concentrated watercolor)
-2nd layer of makers (mostly tombo, but also copic in the areas that I didn't want to bleed)
-3rd layer of colored pencil (faber castelle and prismacolor)
-4th layer of a mix of materials including: gel pen, liquid acrylic, more marker and pencil

Hey guys! I've been working on this for the past's part of my final drawing project.  There will be 2-4 others to accompany this one, each in a different style.  This is my realistic approach, referenced from this image:  I took a photo to show a little more of my work space and process. I've still got a few more layers and a background to add. 

Little note about the project:
I know I don't usually post realistic stuff, but I wanted to showcase something that I don't normally draw for my final project. Because so much of my art is a little less realistic, sometimes I think that there is the assumption that my art is a 'cop-out'.  I feel like this is how a lot of artists are viewed, especially in the modern day art world. I wanted to comment on this generalization with a series of drawings- each completed in a different style, progressing from very realistic to more abstracted.
