I would do the wings and body + two points of crown and the basic head as the back layer. The orange outlined part as the second layer and the orange outlined part of the crown as a third layer from across the forehead including the three points of the crown. Just me and the way I would do it.

To give you a little info, using Inkscape you can separate the colors into layers and cut how you please. Here are some images showing that, you import the Jpeg then do a color trace with how many color you have. Then they can be broken apart as you like.
