victoria crown pigeon

I’m going to try and do the Decembird challenge, because I need more practise drawing birds. The theme for day 1 is favourite, so here are some Victoria crowned pigeons!

They are the best pigeons. They have the best mowhawks, the thickest eyeliner, and they sound just exactly like when you blow across the top of a bottle! They’re also proving rather difficult to draw. I’m not happy with the proportions of the top one, but I do like the pencil one on the right.
