Rose-Breasted Cockatoo by KristynJanelle Rose-Breasted Cockatoo by KristynJanelle
I'm like a one person bird art factory, I just crank em out :XD:

This is a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo (also known as a Galah).

There is a story behind the inspiration for this one that I will have to share at a later date! :heart:

Colored pencil in roughly 5 hours, on recycled paper.

I love galahs. <3 They have one at a pet shop near my house, when I go to get food for my pets I make sure to say "hello" to him. He's sort of a pet himself, allowed to roam around the store. Galahs are so handsome! :D

Yes, I do c: And it's lovely having them everywhere, although they can be a bit noisy. Black cockatoos are a wonderful sight though c':

I don't even know that we have any black cockatoos available here! I've never seen one in person. I don't think they're legally in the pet trade.

Oh, wow : o That's a shame, they're really cool. You can hear them miles away xD Pretty big, too. I wonder why they're illegal :/

I think we just didn't have any imported before it became illegal to catch them from the wild, and it's very expensive to legally import a bird from one country to another at this point. But I'm not sure. They're beautiful regardless. I will just have to enjoy my white and pink cockatoos!

Hm, well I guess importing animals would be risky :/
I just enjoy them in the wild, heh. Don't worry, white and pink Cockatoos are beautiful c;
