Philippine Eagle by Spectrum-VII Philippine Eagle by Spectrum-VII
With the largest wingspan among extant eagles, the critically endangered Philippine eagle ranks as one of the rarest and most powerful birds on Earth-- from the moment I saw it, I knew I had to try drawing one. Took a more improvisational approach this time around.

Materials: 4H-8B sketch set, HB and 2B mechanical pencil

Beautiful eagle, but also a very intimate and kind of sad pose. Love the details!

Sadly the Philippine Eagle Is either Extinct or only one left in captivity....Sadly...i hope one more is either alive so they could produce more of those wonderful creatures...

Whoa. This looks like a photo! Fantastic work! How big was the sheet of paper? And how on earth did you manage NOT to smudge the pencil all over the piece? I tend to do that all the time.

Thanks! This was drawn on a sheet of 8.5 x 11". I always fold up a clean sheet of paper to rest my hand on while I draw; it protects your drawing surface from friction as well as moisture/oil from your skin.
