Something fresh new for now and also something promised really long ago - this was for kiriban, I bet the old old request was different but I guess that owner preferneces changed a bit in a time, as I checked favourites - so I hope :iconorzel: Orzel you will like this! I'm sorry it took me so long u.u
Just a side note - birds are step out of my comfort zone so I needed to stick to references a lot. Can you imagine that frustration when sketch is finished, happy about how it turned out, and than you realize that drawn type of eagle is so much different it simply can't be misplaced with owner picked one? That's exactly what happened here but it couldn't stop me finishing this old promise. And it also mean that there will hopefully soon be one more gryphon ^^

This looks really great, thank you a lot! I think it turned out just fine, especially, that as you say, you don't draw birds usually. And I'm pretty sure this is what I requested originally (but I might be wrong, too). xD
So yeah, you did really well and I definitely appreciate all your effort - and the fact that you remembered still after so many years. <3

I'm happy that you like it :) 
To be honest, I'm not sure - meanwhile I moved to different hard-drive so rather than study what exactly we agreed at those years ago, I checked if you are active and after checking favourites... it was clear to see what should I try to.
aww, thank you - I think it's better late than never :blush:

I love the intense and confident expression this bird is wearing! =D

It may be hard to believe but even birds (with that static looking beak) can make pretty self-explaining face emotines :D
Happy it turned out good, thank you! :)
