Woo! A random attempt at sketching paid off and I came up with this beauty. Modeled after a black palm cockatoo I decided to add a little tongue in cheek humor to spice it up. Hand drawn sketch, outlines done in illustrator, colouring and texturing done in Photoshop.
My familiarity with Photoshop is improving at least, although I have a long way to improve up to the standard that I truly want to be at.
