Needed a break from painting, decided to start this piece, so far I am happy with it!

Why do some of the pics go sideways? It is not so on my tablet. I am confused.

What kind of creature is the eye to. I'm thinking it almost looks like a frog?

I don't know why the picture would be oriented differently from what you up loaded.

It might have something to do with the size of the picture when you upload it? Was this a very large file?

It is an excellent start and I look forward to seeing it progress. I see a bird eye..or a lizard?

I like what's there, should be something when it's finished. Hard to tell exactly what it is just yet but I'm guessing some kind of lizard, Iguana maybe.

This one is actually right side up.

Thanks, I am looking forward to seeing how this comes out myself. I am taking my time with it.

This is interesting. The shading and expression are great. The detail is great...but I don't know what it is. Is it a form of marine life, or a different kind of bird? Or is it an abstract?

Thank you Terry.

It is a Philippine eagle.

I looked up Philippine eagle and they are sure strange looking birds. You did a good job. Thanks.

I found the picture first and had to find out what it was, quite a search. :)

Thank you, his feathers are more challenging than I first expected, kind of like "hairy" feathers. Wasn't sure if they were translating well.

Did what little background there is, some shadowing on his body below the wing and started placing the feathers on his chest. The rest needs to be finished in natural light because it involves a lot of yellow and grey and I cannot see those colors properly without some sun.

In order for me to see your picture properly I save it and open it in paint and rotate it. Do you see it upside down on the thread or is it just me?

I love the way it is coming out.

I know! He keeps landing on his face. I even got clever this time and rotated the pic so it would change it to the right position, THAT didn't work! Not sure why it is so determined to load this way. I guess I need to take the pic in landscape instead of portrait.

I have seen your work and it's amazing! From what I see you can draw like this and better!

Finally had a chance to work on him. The chest feathers need so much more but I have gotten farther than I was!

Here it is right side up. Susan are you taking these pictures with a cell phone? I know if I hold my cell phone upside down by mistake the pictures come out upside down and with these newer cells that are just rectangles that is easy to do. Since I don't use a tablet I need to turn the picture around to see it because turning the computer upside down is not so easy.

I love how he is coming out, you are doing a fantastic job.

Thank you Terry, I just need to remember to take the pic in landscape mode, so far no good. One day I will get it right.
