Ostrich & Dragonfly painting

Baby Ostrich & Dragonfly
Acrylic on canvas
"I come in peace" could be the possible title :)
Reference photo from lady_carol and paintcrazy022 from wetcanvas (thx :D)

Initial sketch and Pink background (Liquitex' light portrait pink)
Time : 3 hours

Baby ostrich's face (beak included)
Payne's grey, Titanium white
a touch of light portrait pink & raw sienna
Time : 10.5 hours in 4 days

I was gonna go for the dramatic effect, just the baby ostrich looking up and that's it, but.....

something was kinda missing, so I added a dragonfly :)
Time : 3-3.5 hours

close up of the dragonfly
wings : Payne's grey and Titanium white
