Traditional drawing of a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus).
I didn't put so much detail into the feathers, because I was using some cheap grainy paper... That's why I'm still looking for the perfect drawing paper (>150g/m² + very smooth, but not so super smooth like bristol paper), so I would be happy about some suggestions, because I'm running out of my favourite drawing paper (so old that I can't buy it anymore, because they changed the quality :grump: ).

Reference photo by cycoze : fav.me/d5hdjs9

Paper DIN A4 190g/m² (size of the drawing = 21cm x 14,2cm); Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker, Copic Multiliner 0.05 (black, warm gray, sepia), uni-ball Signo pigment ink um-153 white; time: >6 hours

You must've taken a photo and pretended it was a drawing. Being this talented is.... humanly impossible. 


(I love the detail. I'm not very good at drawing fur or feathers)

Have you ever tried cold press illustration board? I've found that it puts up with a lot more abuse than regular paper (I don't know how many times I had to start over because I scribbled through a sheet of regular weight drawing paper with my Prismacolors). As a surface it's just rough enough that it grabs nice rich color, but not so rough that you lose definition... it's available in a variety of weights and thicknesses, too, and it's usually acid free. If you're even still looking for a new paper... I love your work, by the way. Great gallery :) Nice to find a kindred pencil pusher.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'm still looking for the perfect paper. And no, I think I haven't tried it yet. The problem is that I have to look if I can get it here in Germany. Can you recommend any other brand (when I search for "cold press illustration board" on amazon.de I get result for more than 400€ :o )?
Thank you very much! :)

I've got some Crescent Illustration Board No. 100 Heavyweight at the moment, if you're looking for something more specific. The No 100 Heavyweight is fairly thick - maybe an 1/8 inch - which I like a bit more than the thinner stuff just because it doesn't get bent as easily. It's on Amazon.

Thanks! Hmm... it looks like I can't get it in A4 and there's nothing written about how thick the offered paper is (I don't want to cut down every sheet, because of my sheet protectors ^^; )? Usually there's also a A4 version, so the search goes on. Well, I still have to test some other papers I've bought a few weeks ago. Maybe one day I'll find the perfect paper. Hope dies last. ;)

You have a gift my friend.  I have seen a lot realistic art, but your eagle looks like it is about to turn his head a look right at me.  Your work is not just awesome, I am truly in awe of it.  I had to check out your whole gallery, again.  I messaged you about a year ago on one of your other pieces.  Your women are so flawless, I bet you could do an incredible Gillian Anderson...in her day, probably the most beautiful woman on TV...my opinion.  I don't know how old your post is or where you live, but I have always loved Bristle Boards...they are about 1/8" thick and very nice to work on.   Never paid attention to what lbs it was, just went to the art store and bought it.  Absolutely love your work.

And also thanks for the paper suggestion. I'm still looking for drawing paper (for graphite drawings as well), so I bought different Bristol paper a few weeks ago. I still have to try it though.

Absolutely remarkable! The realism is spectacular. I noticed you used a couple different tools to accompany the colored pencils. I have been seeing this a lot in others' work that I greatly admire. As far as the marker, multiliner, and the pigment ink how did you use them? I'm not familiar with the last two and I have been wanting to incorporate markers in my work for finer detail. Any starter tips you may have or suggestions on what the tools work best for would be greatly appreciated!

I use the markers for a base layer and the white gel pen (and sometimes the multiliners) for details. Here's one of my step by step tutorials with my technique: Traditional (mixed media) tutorial
