You work is lovely. I can hear him saying "Topper want a cracker".

(I will remove the previous thread where you messed up on the load so people don't go in it.)

Not bad for your first time!

But some advice, definitely make the shadows darker to add depth to your subject. On the feet, try not to show any of your pencil outlining prior to coloring. Let shading and highlights define the shape of the subject.

Very nice! I was going to suggest the not outlining as well but see it has already been done. What a cute little bird!
