I don't usually post in this area -- I'm very new at this and usually stick to the weekly challenges or the classroom. Attached is a drawing of a 'common loon' that I've been working on -- would appreciate C&C, suggestions. I've left the foreground and background simple to avoid distracting from the subject -- but would appreciate any suggestions. Originally I started this in pen and ink but thought it looked to flat -- so, re-started in graphite to work on my lights and darks. 8x10 in, mechanical pencils, 2B, HB, not sure of the paper but is a very light buff.
Attached link to reference.
