Using the orbs for shading works well, you just need either spread out the shading more evenly,  or add more shades for the highlights. The jump to while is way too harsh. You might be able to dither into white using the light yellow. Also, the top of his head needs some shinyness added to it. Everything else seems to have a sheen to it except the noggin.

Beak looks great. I'm not fond of the tufts of feather that stick out on the blue since they seem too bright.  Does the eye outline need to be black? Could you do without that harsh eyebrow? These are great color choices, so I'd say mission accomplished there.  :y:
