Managed to work through the chapter from the book about perspective and when you finally think that you understand one technique, you only have to change the vanishing point that the object originates from to be slightly confused again.
There where not much time over to explore different shapes and pattern of the building. I will continue to do that tomorrow and to explore a few thumbnail sketches for the finished piece.
More shading today, feathers are being difficult.

Great work everyone! so much cool work being produced!, a reminder for all since we'r getting close to day 10.
If you exceed the 10 day limit by a day or two, its fine, but make sure that your next project is small enough to fit within an 8-9 day time frame. you don't want to fall behind this early, time management is really important.
finished my first project three days early... clocking in at about 9 hours, p. occidentalis. just as well that i'm already done, i think i'll want the extra time for my next project. hang in there, everybody. one week down.

ps.. really digging your piece and workflow.
Pou- Thanks also for the terrific advice. You to recognize my inability to avoid a static feeling with both the pose and composition. Although at the time, I think I was just feeling it and had hopes I could make it work, with what I had in my mind for the pieces meaning at least. I will certainly hope to incorporate some more dynamic elements in my next piece. And I think it strayed daily. Its the fun of the challenge, to make sure it stayed in motion. Thank again for your crit. `Great jonb with your piece, You've achieved a great base full of color and movement As you mentioned, rendering it will be the icing!! Go for it!

Thanks a bunch for the lovely comment. I wanted this to be a portfolio piece, but made a huge mistake with adding the cape because it covered my main light source and now showing the figure is becoming a really huge problem for me. Ah well, I'll give it three more days, maybe I can salvage something. If not, next one will be better, hopefully.
