Here it is. My flamingo. Sorry I couldn't participate last night but I was to be the game planner for my friend's 1st ever big bash. Couldn't miss it. However I got up bright and early on this beautiful saturday morn to do my flamingo. It took me 42 minutes, done in a 3B pencil, 6 x 9 dimensions. Hope you all had fun last night and hope to be here next Friday.

It's never too late. Excellent drawing - very realistic (the feathers, especially).

Thanks everyone for viewing my flamingo and posting something. My IP was down for about 10 hours. It went down right after I posted my image and I just now was able to respond. thanks again.

Hi Orchidlover6,

I really like this one, your proportions are great! Nice highlights on the neck and head area too. You should do more birds and animals :)

It's the dreaded arch-villian flamingo! Can't mis-identify him using this picture.

Very good job. Hard to believe that a couple of threads over you are talking about your display of "Artist's Temperment"

it's my split personality. Orchidlover or Arthater. Never know which one might appear.

Hi Orchid, (or Arthater, I want to cover my bases)

I like your flamingo, you do pretty good work. I read alot of stuff about you, and you do alright to me. I think you have it down pat. Good feathers too!:p Hope to see your stuff on Sunday.
