Regal Stare

I love drawing animals! Birds especially are lovely. This bald eagle was done with pencils on black paper. It's a bit different from shading normally or even just painting on a dark colour! The pencil colours don't adhere to the paper if you try to colour over them infinitely.

Anyhow, I'm really pleased with this pic. Reference from the National Geographic website.

This looks great! I love the feather detail. :nod: ...and his regal eagle stare.
Just wondering, what kind of pencils did you use? The white stands out really well, much better than when I try that.
It is a bit weird drawing this way, isn't it... I always seem to lose concentration for a second and find myself slipping into shading the dark areas, but still holding a light pencil... ^^;

Great work! Love the texture on the feathers and the look in his eye!
Much more effective than it would have been on white paper, so I commend you on your choice of materials too!
