Red-tailed Hawk by AmBr0 Red-tailed Hawk by AmBr0
(Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within its range. There are fourteen recognized subspecies, which vary in appearance and range. It is one of the largest members of the genus Buteo in North America, typically weighing from 690 to 1600 grams (1.5 to 3.5 pounds) and measuring 4565 cm (18 to 26 in) in length, with a wingspan from 110 to 145 cm (43 to 57 in). The Red-tailed Hawk displays sexual dimorphism in size, with females averaging about 25% heavier than males.

A first glance upon this artwork should stun the very eyes that are glaring into the effort this amazing artist has placed into their drawing. You should not only be amazed at this outstanding work, but you should be surprised at the incredible beauty brought fourth within. It has already been proved to me that the artist took quite some time in creating this masterpiece, as the very details shown before you are remarkable. They had taken their time and spent it on creating and accomplishing this, and in the end it came out exquisitely beautiful.
The vision, originality, technique, and impact are so very hard to judge. This work could be represented in a thousand different ways before one was to come to an agreement with another's judgement. Allow me to give you one last message on this work's beauty and inspiring image. Writing a critique for this artwork is amazingly difficult, but judging all rates for this, it is even more laborious.
In my view, this could have reached five stars in all rates if the drawing had some sort of background to represent. Instead, I am giving it the stars that it deserves. It is fact that one cannot completely judge a work of art and give it the correct amount of stars, but I think that I am giving it the ones that are right. I guaranteed that others would rate this another way, but for now, this is how I have viewed it.

In the final conclusion, this is a work that one could never describe in words. It is just that astounding.

Such soft attention to the feathers... You can even see the individual strands that make every feather up! How you get so much detail on an A4 size drawing is amazing. Another brilliant piece :)
Simply Splendid! I marvel watching hawks daily, as we have a few that decided to use our yard as their hunting grounds. The way they swoop and soar, is breathtaking. Your work is stunning =)
The minute detail in this is just absolutely stunning. I don't know how else to say it, but I can not believe how realistic this is. Amazing job!
