Harpy Eagle Pencil Rendering1 by HouseofChabrier Harpy Eagle Pencil Rendering1 by HouseofChabrier
11" X 14" Pencil Rendering of a Harpy Eagle. Done with 2B Pencils only because I can't find the 4B and 6B Pencils, and I don't want to go get some unsharpened ones. I've been drawing frogs, but I just wanted to do a companion to the first Eagle Head. I illustrated this from my own photographs taken in Mexico City Zoo, and the back feathers in the headress from A "Mongobay" Photograph I found on the internet. I have photographs of Harpy Eagles bedraggled from rain falling on them, and Shiny and smooth headed with a clear view of the eyes. I also have one with the bird looking directly at the viewer with the Head feathers ruffled, and one in profile but no ruffled feathers. I hope making a composite drawing doesn't violate anyones copyright.

Thank you! I love to draw eagles, just because of that expression. They seem to have disdain and a boldness in their eyes that is riveting to me as an artist. I just finished another eagle drawing last night.

OMYGOODNESS I LOVE THIS. some of the best artwork i've seen is pencil art. no colors, no ink, just straight up graphite. they're just so much more... real, ya know?

Being a pencil artist myself, I should let you know this piece stopped me in my tracks!

11x14 is such an exciting but intense art-board to draw on. Just recently started an 18x24 piece
to take my drawings to a more professional level. 1.5 months later... not even 1/6th of the way
completed.

Congrats on your work. We illustrators know how pencil and paper offer glorious victory at the strong
chance of utter disaster.
