Great work. How long did it take to do? This style o vector illustration is particularly impressive when you can tell it hasn't been live traced from a previous illustrative work.
Makes me want to get out the tablet and get back to more drawing in illustrator freehand style.

Thanks!

I had the idea Thursday night while sleeping/dreaming and since it was for the Movember Contest at Threadless I had to hurry to get it done. The deadline was Sunday, and I knew I wouldnt have the time Saturday and Sunday so I had to do it on Friday alone. I think I started sometime in the afternoon and finished around 10 pm but that included making the flash presentation and so on for Threadless aswell!

I used 3 photos of different hawks as reference to create this one. For the eyes, beak and general outline I looked at the pictures more often but the feathers are all freely drawn!

Also, yes do get your wacom out :)
