Hi Kristen, thanks! I did not realised there are so much detail in the eagle beak. Good thing the photograph is able to capture the details.
Now that you mentioned it, the dragon design might work for a tattoo.
Below is a recent drawing. It turned out to be very different from that I planned. I did not keep a discipline approach on it. Wanted to give up half way but one of the threads mentioned to keep on practising and continue to "complete" a drawing/ sketch and one will find something to learn from. I follow that advice and turn it into a exercise to experiment a bit of lighting.
slightly painful but beneficial as well.
