Ah, it's amazing! One can often see pictures of birds whose feathers look more like a fur, or on the contrary look too straight and periodic. You managed to describe the feathery feel perfectly, as well as the bird's pose. Very realistic, yet using the artists shortcuts, as my father calls them - like the multiple scratches on the branch or fading legs of the bird. I am impressed by all your work, but with this one you hit my weak spot for raven-type birds.
Thanx again for your comment! Ravens are my weak spot too, when I find a window I always make an image of a raven, love them as very intelligent birds and the heavy symbolism they carry on their wings!
