I liked the suggestion posted about adding labels.. I also added another little section for myself with questions I have.. ie..”how do I add shape and dimension to leaves...how do I get them to look folded?”
I found myself anxious to get every detail right right off the bat. As I kept drawing it was easier to relax and enjoy the process. I enjoyed drawing his little feet and legs a lot. I would not have noticed the details in the leaves and branches, the wispy little underbelly feathers, or the way his beak looks just like a little black oil sunflower seed.
