I love this. THe blue streaks in the background are so cool! I'm going to have to use abstract backgrounds more often on some of mine if they go to black, it's too great a way to complete a composition!

The clarity of this, done in coloured pencil is remarkable, and a very beautiful ACEO!

when your note function returns, i'd like to ask a question about how you post this original on EBay rather than a print in exchange for the reference image :manhug: many thanks :glomp:.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "rather". I believe notes are working, so I'll drop you a note, and feel free to send me one. :wave:

It's not appearing on anyone's home page, as far as I can tell. That has frustrated me a couple times too. :no:

beautifully done...I like the tight cropping, hmm, if I had any criticism at all...I'd like to have seen the entire wing (though, I think I see what you were doing compositionally- curving diagonals from each side?)

Thanks! :aww:

I thought the wing pose was a bit unusual, but sometimes it is the unusual perspectives that draw me to a reference photo. The wing is folded very tightly, so the outermost primary feathers appear to curl upward. There is a link to the reference photo in the description.

Thanks. I was a little worried after I finished that the background was too dark to look good, but by then it was too late to change it. :shrug: I'm glad you like it.

This is beautiful! I don't know what you did on the feathers, but they really look iridescent. And the way the background is darker just behind the bird makes it seem to jump out of the page! Well done.
