This one is a bird of paradise, and the picture incorporates many of the techniques that I learned while making the woodpecker: vortex coils to fill the main areas of plumage; large wheatears for the tail feathers; 'beehive' coils for the tree branch ... and a mix of 3mm and 1.5mm strips to create depth. For added emphasis, I decided to wrap each distinct area of plumage twice around with a white strip. I also experimented with adding some gently curved 1.5mm green strips 'papergraphics-style' to give detail to the long background leaves.
Now that it's complete, I can almost hear the sounds of the rain forest with the bustle of insects and the raucous calls of other creatures, accompanied by the steady fall of rain!
Wish me luck!!
