Another Parrot ATC: Meet Shadow

After drawing a parrot portrait for an trade some months ago, I got a request from another parrot owner.  This  artist trading card features Shadow, a nanday conure  talented enough to maintain his own blog:  A Parrot’s Point of View.  Shadow is also the inspiration for the  children’s book  “If You Were a Parrot” by Katherine Rawson.   Katherine provided a number of charming photos for me to work from and I quickly fell in love with this bird.

A fellow art card trader asked me to  draw  her parrot.  Her name is Miss Duke (the parrot) and she looked like a charmer from the photo I received.   It was fun figuring out what colors to use.   Oh and look, no pen lines!
