Traditional drawing of a hummingbird (Green-crowned brilliant - Heliodoxa jacula). It was fun to draw all these iridescent feathers (too bad my scanner messed up the colours and the contrast a bit...)! It could be a bit better, but I gave up drawing all these feathers properly after a while. ^^;

Wow, what a stunning photogra.. Wait, what? This is a drawing?! I really don't get it - it looks SO much like the real thing!!
Everything - starting with the clear looking eye and hight detailed area around it, to the very accurately placed light reflections, these little body feathers shining quite metallic due to the white accents, ending somewhere with the wing feathers' thin structures.
Let alone the beautiful choice of those flashing bright colors (even though it's all green, sort of). And even the background, dark and blurry as it is, looks still convincing.
Awesome isn't even a thing compared to this incredible piece of art!! La la la la
