"Helmeted Honeyeater" pencil drawing.
Finally finished! The Helmeted Honeyeater is Victoria's state bird, and has been on the critically endangered list for far too long. This piece will be going to the conservation team in Melbourne, to be auctioned off in a fundraiser to help raise some much-needed money for this year's breeding and release program. This year, they currently have 41 new fledglings and 34 Breeding pairs which is a record :). All the details:
The incredible reference image by Chris Daley of @jindivik72 (I really recommend checking his page, awesome photos!), Prismacolor Premiers and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, and first trial of Brush And Pencil's titanium white powder and touchup texture mix (will definitely be using again, amazing product!)
