So... now you have me confused... it that a real bird? Perfect model expression of "innocence" and playfulness. I like that you tried to bring some "magic" with the brushing, but I don't feel it was particularly well-excuted. It would need more convincing and less generic brushes. More contrast and overlays.
Thank you so much for the constructive criticism! I've still much to learn about airbrushing. I feel it is one of the things I still have to practice. You're right about the brushes too. I gotta update my resources... Hahaha! Hopefully I can execute it better next time. This is the first series where I tried to actually do photo manipulation by adding artifacts.
