This diving acrobat is aiming for his target blossom with one extended wing and one in gliding slimline. I had a bit of fun using bright purple for his shadow areas and give him a roundness with light blue on the top surface. The forest gree wing surfaces allows enough seperation to really show the wings as separate from his body.
Just finished this male Hummer on the tablecloth embroidery project. A zooming dude done in greens with a white neck, he has a tint of blue on his wings and tail feathers. He became quite a challenge with his wings wanting to blend-in with the body till I did the final highlighting yellow on the top surface of his body. Without this yellow on the top surface and the black on the lower sufaces, it was all wanting to look undefined and kind of blurry.
