Well, I thought I would finish this guy up last night, but the head took more work than I thought. Started with a medium dark gray, colored in very softly under everything, Then went to a medium blue, then added more and more dark blues and finally some dark grey and black. It really makes the white pop once the darks are next to it. Then I reworked the cape a bit with darker colors and threw in some purples, using small and medium thin strokes of color.
Also added some more purples and dark blues for the shadows on the feathers and the stripes. I think I can safely go on to the feet now! Or I may add a bit more black on the face. We'll see! Hope you enjoy his cute face!
