Hornbill by diddleh Hornbill by diddleh
Well, more or less finished anyway! It's my entry for #Birds-Club's competition.

Reference: [link] <-- please take a look at this, it is STUNNING!

And here's the WIP: [link]

Made a couple of minor tweaks. Please tell me if there's something you think I should change a bit. :)

I just realised that I had spelt hornbill wrong in the title. :iconfacepalmplz:
