This was a project for my Commercial Arts class back in 06. We were doing illustrations using the rapidiograph (mapping) pen. I chose a bird, took a picture of the bird, then had to grid it out and replicate it, using only hatching and stippling methods. Took me all day in class to finish. So ya, I'm pretty proud of it. :)

id post thescratch board i did but im imbarrassed haha THIS IS GREAT. more work like thisssss

That IS nice

It's actually a lot better than your other submissions, except maybe for "Tropical April". The form of the bird is stylized, but the details are filled with naturalistic precision.

Actually, at first I thought that the leaf below its beak was the lower part of its beak. I wish it was - I think the composition would be stronger.

pretty much the darkest area is his beak, about an inch down at his chest was a dark leaf.. but thank you, i know most of my stuff is pretty crappy compared to this one lol, i'll be adding more soon :)
