A slightly later than planned update on this one, due to the late hour I finished at yesterday. The main bulk of the bird is now filled in at the basic level, with simple tones and texture. All very narrow in tonal range still, but the next stage will start to remedy that. As you can see at the very bottom, a basic outline of a perch has been put in as well – nothing too fancy, just an interesting looking tree stump. Next task is to start work on the details and tone towards completion.
