My first bird drawing posted in the galleries! :D I tried putting this in the old topic, but that no longer had an image upload option. I'm not going to bother to repost my old ones for the galleries unless I get really bored, so those will probably stay in the old topic.

You guys are the first to see this one, you lucky folks you. I normally post these on my facebook profile first, but I'm not putting this one there until after Mother's Day. That's because this drawing is for my mom for Mother's Day (and I'm sending her the original drawing), and I don't want her to see it before then on my facebook. :shiftyeyes:

Nothing too notable about this drawing. Maybe except drawing the white on the wings was pretty difficult. Also, the shading is extremely subtle since it's straight black where there's significant texturing, but I think it came out well. Maybe I'll tinker with photo editing some more to bring out the shading some, but editing on this one is minimal.

Ahhh! I totally love this one, CW! Baltimore Orioles are beautiful birds; I used to see them frequently on my hikes in Maryland (Patapsco and Gunpowder Falls).

Very awesome drawing, CW! I bet your mom you be thrilled to receive it. It's very bright and colorful and you did a wonderful job with the shading.

This one is my favorite, CW! Well done! What medium did you use?

The usual...colored pencil. :)

Beautiful bird, and you did an exceptionally good drawing of it, CW! Your artistic talent is very impressive. I know your Mom will be very much pleased. :clap:

Very nice (and I'm not biased because I'm a Maryland man myself) :)

You know, I think I have seen one of these birds visit the bird feeders in my back yard. Wow. Beautiful bird. :)

If you're in the eastern US, they can be seen in backyards sometimes. Apparently they like oranges. In the west there's a different species of oriole, and there's a few others in certain areas.
