Here's the finished version of my grackle piece. The bird came out pretty much exactly how I imagined it, but the hands were an issue. There were a lot of color changes that happened because I intended them to have something of a dead, greyish palette with reds at the tips of the hands. It was a balancing act of green, purple, blue, grey and then the issue of what to put the hands on and how strongly to set them away from the background. Either way, I'm glad to see it finished and to hear how it's received. Thanks
