This has to be my top favorite deviation in all of Deviantart. I don't really know why... I've never really cared much for flamingos, but this one picture is just so mesmerizing. I love it!!!!

This is soooo well done. I especially love how you laid everything out and how you balanced the colors. I would never had guessed that this is your first flamingo picture!
However, I hope you don't mind a critique coming from an amateur... there are two things I think you could have done a better job on. 1-the 'feel' of the body feathers and the wing feathers seem totally different, like its not done for the same piece. The body is more detailed and soft, while the dark parts of the wings look... artificial? 2-The chest feathers look a bit more like fur than feathers to me.
I know that you weren't looking for critiques, but I like this pic a lot and think that it is soooo close to perfection.
Please keep up the great work!

Are you kidding, I LOVE critique, and welcome it at any time, on any piece. :3
So thanks for your terrific comment, and you're absolutely right about the chest feathers. In my pursuit to achieve some sort of movement in the image, I ended up deviating bit too much from what actual flamingo feathers look like.
