Oaxacan Hummingbird: sketches and color palette!

^ Thumbnails and a bit of fun (some will be familiar with my Angry Hummingbird).

^ More thumbnails and a closeup; I wanted to work out some of my patterns and textures before committing them to the final piece.

^ A full-body study.

^ Color palette for the hummingbird. I'm using bold hues complemented by lighter hues for accents; I will include black, too.

^ Another full-body study. I like the thumbnail in which the hummer's wings are pointed down better; hummingbirds are flexible, but the wings-down pose looks more natural.

Expect to see some more studies and progress soon!
