Hi there MinnaSundberg! I'm currently working with a poetry publication called the Clay Bird Review, and we loved this piece of yours! My colleagues and I were wondering whether we might have your permission to match up your piece with a poem and post it on our Facebook page! Your Deviantart name will also be listed up there and we will send you a link to the posting so you can see it for yourself! Please just send us a message back with your answer.
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!
