My neighbor is a wildlife photographer and has shared one of her most recent photos. This is a copy of the reference and my pencil drawing.
very nice Jody!
I particularly like the water distortions- none of which - in my own graphite drawings, seem easy to do figure out.
Great Job! Fantastic!
Very nice. I like keeping the focus on the bird with the dark background.
Such positive comments; thank you all.
Right off…I like it…I do notice it needs something in the front to appear 3 dimentional…as well as in the background. Also, perhaps a bit brighter? or more contrast? (by more use of complimentary/darker shadow?)
