bird in orange

Sketch based on a bird from Biblioddyssey's recent post -- "They come from an 1806 two-volume work called 'Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis et des Rolliers, suivie de celle des Toucans et des Barbus' by Fran├žois Levaillant and Jacques Barraband".

I did a sketch from the picture, then colored, then merged in a textured background (and messed with overall color). The hot new color for 2012, according to Pantone, is a bright organgey color.
