Forgive me, Im not very knowledgeable when it comes to photo manips but I just had to take a stab for this one! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Smile)" /> I love that you chose a bird. I don't see a lot of works that center just on birds when it comes to manips. Sure, the bird might be in the photo but rarely the center of attention! I love all the textures and how well they blend and overlap with each other. the painting over the feathers is really neat and the angled lines add a really interesting touch. The colours really pop but not in a detracting way. The ONLY critique I have is so minuscule it's barely worth mentioning.. but there's a sharp bold dark line above his wing that sorta doesn't fit.
yup, that's it. lol really enjoyed the piece, thanks for sharing.
