This piece is really dark, it's cool. The only reason I didn't give full points on the technique is because I felt the body was a little flat, like it should be turned a little towards us, you know? That and I felt the super-red tongue was out of place on this piece.
Other than that I loved it. The red tongue aside, I loved the rest of the coloring on this piece, the long legs, the elegant lines in the neck and body, lack of a face, and the wings make it extra creepy! The background is good too, nice and dark.
