Oh, wow!  He's so pretty!  The feathers are super impressive.  Did you use markers to accent the edges?

I did use markers on the edges! I thought the layers blended into each other a bit too much without an outline.

This was actually the first paper cut project I had ever made! I was just looking at a picture of a parrot and sketched out a few outlines but pretty soon it all became freehand. Pretty sure my roomate thought I was crazy..  Roll Eyes
