 Post subject: Bird Drawing - Bald Eagle
PostPosted: Sat Jul 17, '10, 4:11 am 
First one in a while, since the last one I finished I forgot to take pictures of (oops) and then one I nearly finished got beer spilled on it when I just had one bit left to color. >_< But this one suffered no such fate! A Bald Eagle. Pretty straightforward. Mostly colored pencil, but the face (that is, the eye and the beak) are oil pastel.

Wow! I just love the feathering and shading on the white "bald" part of his head! Great job; what a majestic bird!

Magnificent drawing, CW, and such a magnificent bird as well. Makes one proud to have this bird as a symbol of our country. Such exquisite detail in your work here, and the eye really captures your attention. I'm in awe of your work. :clap:

Excellent work! The bald eagle is one of my favorite birds. I really like the way you captured it, especially the detail and shading of the white part. The two mediums look to have blended very well together.

Is that the wing in the background, behind the body and beak? I'm not sure due to the glare from the camera flash.

It's wing. I couldn't get a good camera angle, as the glare was even worse if I turned lights off, so I had to choose a lesser of two evils there.

I love your bird drawings, CW, and I'm glad you tacked the project of drawing an eagle. This bald eagle looks so majestic! I can't help but wonder if he is thinking about stealing the next fish from an Osprey (only bird geeks would get that joke).

Anyway, well done on this piece! The wing detailing is my particular favorite, but I also love the beak and eyes. :)
