    Thanks Nate. It's been over 2 years since I did a Hooded. I was definitely stressing. Hope he dries well.

    I don't think you could have done a better job on him. he should dry just the way he looks now.

    Thanks guys! I did this one yesterday and though it's not as nice a bird and still needs some grooming, the crest turned out way better. I found that taxiing the skin DOWN was the ticket to get the top line nice and crisp. On the other I kept taxiing up and never did get the line right and the feathers kinda crisscrossed. I need to do a few more.
