Brown Pelican - WIP 3

I started defining the wonderful beak on this bird, I just loved his posture. Diane said he actually just stood still, posing like this for her for the longest time. Cool photograph!

I brushed in the beginnings of some of the wing feathers and started putting in more modeling shadows at this point. I strengthened the yellow area of the head while lifting some color to show the bulge above his jaw. I keep saying "his", I truly do not know if it is a he or she, but it is posing proudly like a he so we will assume that is so.

I am trying to make haste slowly so I will not lose many of those lightest areas but adding the necessary darks to show modeling of his anatomy.
