Inspiration came from detail picture of Philippe Lallemand's portrait of Charles Perrault - especially the palette he used. I love the armospheric yet luminous earthy tones he used. Though obviously in the begining I also used it as a face reference :)
I also used an old sketch of a bird I did back in Goteborg as a reference, so I can't really say what species was it supposed to be exactly, heh heh...
Obviously I'm happy to be back to working on my big ol' computer instead of my tiny laptop ;) so much more comfortable, gee. :)
Until next time!
