Finally! It's done! This one took me a while...despite it being more of a test of multiple new things instead of a "typical" time-consuming drawing.

I used watercolors for the first time here (the background), as well as Bristol paper, which I had similarly never used before. I also just kind of went berzerk with the colors, though I was fine until I colored the blue wings with green spots. All the other colors are fine, but those two...nah, they really don't work.  *shrug*  Oh, well. Learned somethin' new. I took note that if I do watercolor backgrounds, I need to do the entire background in a single color or multiple colors that are nearly the same shade. It was difficult to make all the colored pencil overlays the same shade with varying background colors (note how bright the wing arms are as compared with the neck, which is darker due to the underlying green). Other than that...uh...I think that's pretty much it.

A big thanks goes out to Rachael Mayo for the watercolor background inspiration, color shading advice, and helping me to not be afraid of clashing colors.
