Bald Eagle by markstewart Bald Eagle by markstewart
Done ... i think, so best to stop now. Talons and legs look a little lame but it's all practice ;) Pencil on A4 smooth Bristol
The eagle was referenced from an old book i have. The background was inspired by a google image .. i just thought they looked great together.

must have took over 20 hrs to finish this
what kind scanner you used?

20hrs!! i wish :lol: more like 30 to 40. I'm still learning about feathers and it was a lot of hard work and not much fun. I must have put it down many times. It was nearly a year before i was ready to try to draw another ;)
I use a Epson stylus photo rx620 scanner, a few years old now. I take the tone down by about 50% when i scan and then upload to corel painter and re adjust the values to get it as close to the drawing as i can. If i'm lucky the darks don't pop out that much and it looks more reasonable, if it still looks bad i'll take a photo instead :)

:wow: I love all of the detail put into the feathers. That must have bee very painstaking I would imagine... ^^; Also like the bit of detail put into the mountains and trees in the background. =D It looks as if the eagle is surveying his vast territory. =D :highfive:

Stunning! Genuinely one of the best pencil drawings I've ever seen!

Do you think you could possibly look at my drawings and give me some tips? This is the kind of drawing I'm always trying to draw.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I can't thank you enough for the great advice. How long have you been drawing to make drawings like that? And I suppose you're right, I still have many years ahead of me to improve my drawings, and I'll take your advice to try to get as good as you. Again, thanks very much for the advice, it was very helpful.
