Inspired by the Russian fairy tale (or, in reality, Mercedes Lackey's retelling of it) of the Firebird. In mythology, the firebird was this long-necked, mystical bird with a plume and dazzling eyes. I decided to make her into a parrot. After all, they are some of the most intelligent avians out there.Done from scratch on PSP9, with a photo of my murderous African Grey as a model. No background yet. I toyed around with some things, but I couldn't get them to look as realistic as the actual bird, so I gave up. Any suggestions on what I could do would be nice. ::bows:: Thank you.
