I really like the Hawk Eagle, I find them very interesting, I just think they are so unique.
I really want to draw/practice drawing animals again, I used to do it a lot but then I strayed from it for several years.
To finish off 2012, as my last post of the year here is my Hawk Eagle.
A traditional sketch, it took me about 3.5 – 4 hours to complete using this picture as a reference:
In the end this was given to someone as a gift. Actually to the person who inspired me to draw it. So for now it remains on his bedroom wall 🙂
To add to this, someone had asked for a quick tutorial on how I do my shading.
I though this would be a great picture to use for it
Just wanted to share this picture with you all. I’m fairly proud of this one. I think that it has to proper use of light and dark pencils. I think that the subject is sharp even with the shading, so I guess that I have improved in my pencil work.
This is a gift for my grandma who is returning to England after a short visit here in Canada. I haven’t seen her in such a long time, I’m glad that she could visit. I’m happy that she is able to do other things and enjoy being with us after the loss of her husband recently. I’m quite sad that I was unable to see him, but I am glad that his suffering has ended.
