    Hello everyone I want to ask a favor of my fellow BYCers. I am hoping to start a new Wyandotte (or other breed) illustration but I only have good reference photos of silver laced and partridge wyandottes. I am hoping to do a piece with a different colored Wyandotte. Not sure what color yet but I wanted to know if anyone had some really nice pictures of their show birds I could use? I don't want to go through threads and use pictures as reference without permission. I am looking for posses that flatter the bird and show off its type and coloration. No butt shots, blurry or odd positioned birds. I would love to have reference for a rooster and hen so I can combine them into one piece. If you haven't already you can check out two pieces I have already done of wyandottes. Practice makes perfect and I really want to make a piece that will make people say "Wow, what a Gorgeous bird!". Also just because i don't pick your picture of your bird doesn't mean i don't like your bird or I don't think it is beautiful. Sometimes one photo just stands out more for what i am trying to accomplish rather than another. I have that "Eureka" moment when I find the right photo and just go with it. Multiple photos are better than just one. Anyone interested in helping me?
