Very cool drawing. I love the position of his wings and you did such an especially excellent job on the soft feathers on his head and his eye. Always the most important thing to me is capturing the personality or soul of the subject - and that you did ! Wonderful :)

Oh wow... this is absolutely beautiful! The range of values and the shading technique really let this image pop, I think! I also love the fact that you did not make the contour lines too dark on most surfaces - this is what really lends to the three-dimensionality of this image. Fantastic! Keep up the great work! :heart:

Hey, you're the one with the cat!
It's always a challenge to use contourlines in such a way that they look...if they belong there, and not 'forced' because I just want to use outlines.

*chuckles* Yes, I am the one with the cat, hehe. : )

I can certainly understand where you're coming from with the issue on contour lines - you do an awesome job with it! Keep up the great work1
