Here it is.
I still think I could've done better. I just need brighter colors!! 👿
Well as usual, your technique is super solid, but I understand what you mean in terms of brighter colors, and I might not have worked it like that. If you are interested, I could offer a few suggestions on how to add more of a dynamic to this if you are interested:)
The turquoises in the first ne are stunning!
Okay, here's what you could do. When I look at that picture of the peacock feather close up, I see a few different colors that you could capitalize on that would add to the overall effect of a 'peacock cut crease.' Instead of laying down the one shade of the brighter blue over the entirety of the lid, break it up...Place the blue shade that you have on the lid now in the dead center of your lid, and on your upper lid closest to the bridge of your nose add a orangey gold, and on the outer most edge of your upper lid, apply a deeper more violet blue. Everyone blends differently, so this is how I do it: With those three colors on the lid, take a pointed tapered blender and blend in between each of those colors so they transition well, or you could take a flat shader brush and overlap the colors and blend as you go. Either way...It gets the job done.
Now, outline your crease like you did here but instead of using more blue to blend and push, you can change it up by using a deep forest green to blend it out. Keep that transition fairly linear. On top of the Forrest green, take that orangey-gold shade and blend it into the Forrest green and bring it all the way over and on top of your initial crease line. Then just soften that gold into your highlight.
When you do your liner, you could do a double wing line out to parallel the top line and place a pop of the orange gold for extra effect as well. Sometimes as an artist it helps to magnify the image that you are going to be working with. Peacock's feathers have some deep forest green shades, different shades of blue, yellows, orange-golds etc. that you can really change up to add depth and dimension... I hope what I am saying here makes sense... :)
