Made a lot of progress last night, but now sort of stuck.

 

How do I do highlights and washes without messing up my current colors? How do I do a face lol? And if anyone wants to take a stab at how to do the bird, that'd be awesome too!

How do I do highlights and washes without messing up my current colors?

Thin your paints, take small brushfuls, and wipe most of the paint off the brush onto a damp paper towel. It takes longer to build up highlights and shadows this way, but it gives you more control -- you don't have huge amounts of paint in the brush that'll gush out onto the mini when you touch it -- and any mistakes you make will be the next thing to invisible. I linked to a blending tutorial on the first page that goes over this technique in detail; now that you have some more experience, go back and take a look.
