I spent a little over an hour on this stage and I concentrated on "the bird." I'm surprised at how vivid his colors became on this second layer.
I'm having somewhat of a difficult time with that thing he's standing on. I'm not exactly sure where to put highlights and shadow.
I have not messed with his feet at all since the dead layer. I need to work on them.
He's missing the highlight on his pupil. I plan to put one little speck of Titanium White there when I get him finished. I hope that will make him spring to life. Let's hope he's a nice bird and does not fly away!
