Here is another bird from the fantastic birdbook.org. I think I am going to do some more of these because it is just too enjoyable. This one took a bit longer (15-20 minutes) as it was a little larger than the last...and there are LOTS of lines that I dropped on the page. But, I like the outcome. I can only imagine how long I would spend on this if I were to do a hard core illustration instead of the quick drawing. There is just so much detail on the feathers. I would probably go a little nuts after a while trying to recreate that.
Finished Size: about 4" x 5"
