I drew this a while ago in my illustration class at my university. I was really proud of it,because it was my first time using India ink since the 3rd grade. Its a bird obviously but I didn’t directly base it on any particular bird, I played with the idea of an eagle with parrot like colors.
I really like the movement in the piece, the bird appears to be giving a very dynamic tail whip,but really it is just kinda cleaning its feathers. I am happy to have captured such a wonderful pose and share it with everyone. I have learned that I really enjoy drawing birds and will be drawing more in the upcoming weeks of summer break.
