Well, I'm pleased with this one. I'm getting better at metallic pencils, and I'm amazed so much black can look so pretty. So anyway, this is what a Common Raven looks like when in flight, so call it the flight silhouette if you will. There some parts that look a little rougher than I'd like, but...otherwise, really, I'm pleased with this.

The highlights are very well done. Being such a black bird it would seem hard to pull off well, but you certainly did it. Well done CW and an awesome bird indeed. :up:

A wonderful work, CW. :) Anything with this much black in it can be very hard to color well, but I think you did an exceptional job. There's a lot of detail in the wings and the body looks very three dimensional, which can be difficult to achieve. I'm glad to see an flight pose, too.

That wingspan is amazing! Very well done, CW! The Raven is a beautiful bird. How long did it take you to draw this one?

I did the outline in a night or two, and actually did all the coloring yesterday. Thanks guys! :)

I'm not a huge ornithothusiast, but there's not denying the quality of the art there. Good show! Tally ho!

I love ravens. I hear them a lot while hiking. They're hard to spot in the woods, but I can always pick out their chatting and clicking.

Anyway, I have to agree with everyone that said you did a great job with shading a bird that's all black. That seems really hard to me!
