You can almost feel the softness of the feathers in the way you've drawn them. Beautiful.

Wow this is brilliant! You make me want a kestrel all over again! We lost both of ours, the male last year and the female earlier this year (:(). I loved helping my boss fly the female, she hovered ok but she'd get bored and come to bite your ear if you were too slow. :') *good times*...
Again congrats on the AMAZING picture, one day I'll be this good. *concentrates* :P

This is a beautiful drawing! I just thought I'd mention (because I work with raptors)- Kestrels (like this cute little guy you've drawn) are actually falcons, not hawks. Some people do still classify the family Accipitridae (which includes both the accipiters and the buteos) under the order Falconiformes, but kestrels are in the family Falconidae, which differ from the Accipitridae in four major ways: the presence of malar stripes; nostril tubules; pointed, aerodynamic wings; and the "falcon's tooth," a little protrusion on the upper beak.

(Ah ha, sorry, I don't mean to sound all nit-picky or lecture you or anything... I just thought you might be interested! ^_^)

Hey! Thank you very much! Don't worry at all, of course I'm interested.
I wasn't really sure that was a Hawk. Thanks to you, I learned something interesting today and I'll correct the description. :damphyr:

This piece is gorgeous! I love the fine detail that was put in to this - it looks so real, as if I could reach out and touch it! What kind of pencils did you use? Technique? It's stunning!
