GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Great Horned owl
Year Created: 2002
Medium: Pencil
Surface: Paper
Dimension: 5x7
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
I had not worked on any wildlife for a long time and I wanted to stretch my wings so to speak. I thought a study of feathers was in order.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
The only major questions are:
1. Is there a market for Pencil work as a freelance Illustrator
2. Does this measure up

I am very impressed by the rendering of the feathers,especially at the front of the neck,you can see how he can/will turn his head.
maybe you can put a big highlight across the eye?it will bring out the fluid that lies on top,and will make the eye pop out a bit more.
at the moment the eye doesn't look round.excellent drawing
