This is the first time i've really tried drawing in this medium. I had a photograph of an eagle infront of me when i did this.. as i usually have a fair bit of trouble drawing animals. How do you think i went??

all comments welcome...

Good job! But what is the blank-ish bit in the center of his chest?

Nice to see you experimenting with inks ciarrai :) I think this turned out pretty good. Really like the way you did the head of the eagle. Some good shading and line direction :D:)

Oh! Well done ciarrai. Not an easy subject for your first pen and ink and I think you did very well. Love the beak and the eye.
Keep up the good work and don't forget to post it here:clap: :clap:

Thankyou everyone for such lovely comments.
The break in the chest is for a white patch the eagle had, where he had small white feathers poking out... i was tempted to just keep going with the pattern here, but i wanted it as true as i could get it to the bird.

thanks so much,
ciarrai :D
