This is super awesome, and I am not criticizing this work, however I would love to see you do  a male in the redbird and the female cardinal in the female cardinal colors. IMO, the female colors are gorgeous as they are golden olives, very sweet earth tones.  there are yellows, oranges, some red and magenta blended in a female northern cardinal,  This is most excellent work you have here.

It would be interesting.  The male cardinal is galliant as in protecting  the female by chasing her away from danger or by distracting the danger.  He is not angry at all, he is joyous and sings up to 200 times a day. But he is very serious, and not interested in outside issues but rather keeping himself looking good, getting a mate and running his territory.  Just giving you an idea of the actual bird's personality in real life. but in art you can do anything you want. and you did a great job!

Oh wow, lovely. Very interesting, to. You know, the boy cardinals are red, and the girl cardinals are brown- is this a statement about sexuality and/or gender as well as just a lovely illustration?

This is a great concept,
I really like the classic portrait layout.
Warm colors and an simple background
let the eye wander to the point of the painting.
I like the changeover from the hair to
the feathers, you defied the hairline soft
but clear. I also like the allusion to the
pointy feathers at the head of the cardinal.
But one point:
In my opinion you could have chop the dark
feathers more from the skin, it looks a little
like veeeery blurred mascara. ^^
Anyways, a cool idea and a good ignition. :thumbsup:

This is amazing. Though, when looking at your previous artworks, especially ones done on your Photoshop cs5 + Tablet, I could see that this is definitely one of your works because of this lovely lady's lips, nose, and her jawline. It's amazing. It seems that maybe it's your trademark, or maybe it's just....ehhh, i'm rambling. Sorry. I really love this, it's exotic, original (especially with her no-eyebrows...Most art, especially with women, need well defined eyebrows to help with the "shaping" of the face) and how her shoulders and the beginning of her breasts begin to fade into the portrait.. Man, if I had money, I would SO buy this from you...**Bum-poor** And I loved that you labeled this Cardinal (Vivid Red, if you please...)
