Wow! The movement in this one is fantastic! But I find my eyes getting stuck on the bird. I have a hard time focusing on other parts without my eyes being distracted and almost forcefully moved back to that red circle, if that makes sense. But I really love the colors of this one. The lines of the neck and jaw are amazing! So beautiful! There's a really nice mix of crisp lines and splotches of color on the facial features. One of my favorite parts is those few yellow "frills" in the top right corner. I don't know what it is about them, but they're just so great haha. I also think you did a really nice job balancing the black ink. It doesn't feel heavy in any areas where it shouldn't. As a whole it fills the paper really nicely and the composition is very good. The only thing that strikes me negatively is how much red there is in that one section. But I could go on and on about the lovely colors everywhere else on the paper :)
What do you think?
