This is really a very nicely done picture. For someone so well known on the website, I assumed you'd do more cartoonish stuff. Dang, I wish I knew how to get old pictures of mine and submit them as art. I used to draw stuff like this all the time back when I was little. For the most part, you seemed to have deleted the black outlines for this work. I had no idea your real name was Shawn Tanner.
I love how authentic it looks because of how it was done. It just goes to show that you don't need Photoshop or anything for stuff like that. I like how gracefully everything flows. I doubt that's based on a real bird, because it seems like no bird could be that colorful. It just prooves you were always talented.
