I made some stylizations of my own (including five different feather colours, yay!), so it doesn’t look exactly like the reference design, but a lot of the details were just too much effort (in particular, trying to get the light streaks on the wing and tail feathers not to look like I just scribbed stripes all over them).
I spent like 4 and a half hours over two days on this drawing already as it was (=_=), and I still haven’t tinted the corneas or coloured the lineart >_<
I think I will name this one Kanya, and keep it as a pet. What do you think?

Holay cheese first RFS fan art. o_o
Ok just one thing: I’d meant for there to be a black area/areas on the top of the head so it looked kinda “burnt” which I don’t know if you thought was shading but I don’t blame you for leaving it off because even I’d have to do another drawing or two to figure out how it’d look 3-dimensionally. And for that matter I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them don’t have it anyway. :p
But wow! Rather nice.
