Here is the drawing for the next bird I am planning on creating – the Resplendent Quetzal. A friend kept asking for my make this one and I am now in the mood. This is a pretty cool bird – beautiful colors and long tail feathers, I hope I can do it justice.

The feathers have iridescence to them that I hope to capture with my color choices.
