A Digital Painting of a 'Macaw'

One thing I wanted to explore more this year is 'doing art' on my iPad.
Here is a macaw that we met on our RV travels, in Oregon, this fall.
Myah - was such a fun subject.  Birds are so cool.
Love how smart they can be, this one was extremely sharp.
Below is the first 'saved' photo of the painting.  The one above has some 'blending' work done in the feather areas.  I don't know which one I like better...A or B (below). 
You can help, which one do you like best?
Anyway - what fun!  Takes a long time, but I think I already have learned quite a bit about the painting app called "Procreate".  I use a Wacom Bamboo Stylus, which believe it or not, I got last February - 
just NOW getting the correct use with it.  
I have always wanted a Wacom tablet to use on my computer, 
well, I have one now - only it's all done on the iPad with the stylus.
YOU CAN purchase notecards or prints 
of the "B" copy of this digital art (and others, too!) at Red Bubble HERE.
I have ordered the same card you will order and they are REALLY NICE - have some new selections there, as well for the New Year!

Thanks Dana - it does take some getting used to. I have been dabbling for months.
