Momentary by sidneyeileen Momentary by sidneyeileen
Colored pencil on black paper, 9"x12"
~3 hours of work
Model: [link] A bald eagle, courtesy of ~DGAnder

*Edit*
I woke up this morning (2-7-09) thinking the bird should have been on the left, with the trail of droplets across the page. Oh well....

Well done, I enjoy those style. However, I must say I like the bird on the right, because it gives a place for the bird to fly. If it was on the left it would feel like it was stopped dead against the edge. So, you are good with placement in my humble opinion.

Absolutely gorgeous! I've tried replicating your style, but I'm a long ways from achieving your level of sophistication and beauty. Your subjects are so mysterious and striking, it's awe-inspiring =D

Like I was telling another person, keep developing your technical skills, because any errors in rendering are even more obvious when you remove the noise. Also, look at a lot of photos and pay attention to how the light falls. Maybe even drop them into Photoshop and play with the contrast to see what details come and go.
Most of all, have fun! :D
