Citron by KristynJanelle Citron by KristynJanelle
Just yet another drawing of my Citron-Crested Cockatoo, Carlitos... that's a lot of words starting with C. These guys are critically endangered in the wild. They're also lots of fun to draw.

Colored pencil on recycled paper in roughly 5 hours.


I am currently offering 30% off of everything for the month of January. That includes commissions. Get custom artwork from me for as cheap as $24.50! :) See this journal for details : [link]

Did you use Prismacolor coloured pencils? Wonderful piece by the way. I am currently looking into adopting a Moluccan Cockatoo or a black bunny. I can't choose because they both are immensely adorable.

I do use those, yes :) Moluccans are very difficult to care for, I hear, but if you are up to the task then go for it!

Wow this is a great drawing! Especially because you wrote you did this in roughly 5 hours! I really like the detail you put into it, the feathers look almost real to touch and the colors are applied very well also. And for some reason I also like the position of the autograph, can't really say why but i just feel that way :D Would love to see this as a full body picture!

Thank you! I always tend to sign my art beneath the beak, originally I did it so that no one could crop my name out, but now it's just habit. :) I should be posting some full-body pictures soon!

Not on this one, actually. :) I do for highlights on some of my darker drawings that won't really take the white, though.

Thank you! I got crazy when it comes to colors on white feathers, they're like a blank canvas. :)
