Leaf Birds :: Pássaros com Folhas

I have recently made a new bird series with a more minimal feel. I made them thinking about people who enjoy a more classic style and they can even be worn on formal occasions. For that reason I choose the black and white colors with some gold accents. However I really couldn’t skip color so…
