Took a picture of this little guy last week. Turns out they are rare in this area. He was easy to do in graphite as he is grey, black and white. :biggrin: This is just a rough sketch, not much detail work.

Love it!

Is funny how your "not much detail" work it has even more detail than mine jajajajajajja

I really like it. You do have a knack for birds..that's for sure!

I think if you added a hint more detail (such as lightly visible feathers) it would make it pop even more HOWEVER as it stands it's a lovely lovely piece. It has such a soft feel..I like your really light background as well. Nice touch.

Thanks Chanda. I didn't do a lot of details for time constraints. I gave it to my manager's mom and didn't have time to finish properly. She was ecstatic, so I consider it a success. I will be doing him again.
