    I think he may have a thick skin for protection, the red and gray are nice colours.

    … love the bits of stickytape on the feathers :-)) – and it’s really amazing how they always look shiny and leathery in a way. Fantastic technique! Needless to say, this one made me smile. A+

  • Thanks :)

    LOL… poor ‘little something’. The contrasts between red and grey makes it much more intense. Wonderful excecuted.
