Just a ghosty bird. Probably ready to dive for some spirit fish.

 I like how the body turned out, though the wings are not terribly great.

Pencil on Cardstock.

I just love your drawings! and are you kidding, those wings are better than mine! (not that i have wings!)

:-) Alyssa Eldredge replies: "I’m sure if you had wings, they’d be prettier than this bird’s 12. Thank you for the comment, Mimi. It really means a lot to me when someone comments on a drawing I’ve made."

This is a great job. Anyone who’s ever drawn a bird can really appreciate the tedium and intensity to detail it takes to do so. I’m working on the talons of a bird right now as it swoops down and grabs Toffee, Cave Elf, descendent of Atlantis and High Priestess to the Arm of Fire. To be perfectly honest I’m really hoping I can pull it off and it doesn’t end up in the scrap heap.

:-) Alyssa Eldredge replies: "Thanks for the compliment, Sam! (I think it’s Sam).
Drawing birds, at least for me, is a lot more time consuming than drawing mammals. Mammals you can get away with some well placed scribbles for fur- birds, They’re just annoying to draw."
