This drawing is gorgeous and very intricate however maybe add some shines to make it look more realistic. Maybe adding a few more of the salmon colors to the wings would make it pop a bit more. Since the main picture has less vibrant colors, maybe add a spot of white to the background where some of the light yellow is, and maybe outline the bird in white glow so it looks even more majestic than it is. In all this art is better than I could ever do and the colors on the bird and it's shading are blended perfectly 😍😍 I love your color choice for the bird.
What do you think?

Wow, this is superb! ...I came across this piece in the related section when browsing through my own stuff and I just had to click on it!

The color scheme is absolutely gorgeous and very harmonious. The shading is wonderful, and I especially enjoy the rendering of the feathers. I also love how you used yellow to outline the wings and back, etc -- really brings the whole thing together. Honestly.. just really good use of color (especially value!!!!) throughout. The level of detail is... holy heckin cow

My few beefs with this piece would be...
I find the anatomy to be a bit wonky -- the second wing should probably be visible at least a bit, considering their size, and so should part of the legs, or at least the muscles that come before the legs, even if they are supposed to be tucked-in in this picture (although most heron-like birds actually fly with their legs outward). What you have going on here is a really weirdly wonky just... gourd-shaped body???? idk. That's probably the biggest issue though.

As an afterthought, the clouds at the bottom appear to have a really "solid" feeling to them -- not sure if you were going for that but something could definitely be done to make them seem more airy. That's not too much of an issue though. Overall I love the background omg. .... .
