drawing a B&G Macaw

i took a risk and broke out the colored pencils i haven't used colored pencils in a long time, never mind actually trying to draw realistic animals with them!

so this is my first attempt to draw a realistic parrot






taking a risk at shading!










the shape of the eye really bothers me better luck next time!

Awesome!! Colored pencils are great. I just used them for the first time and LOVE them!
