Nice work Frank!  It looks so contemplative.

Was that using a drawing pad or modeling software or both? That's some intense detail on the head of the bird.

I used Photoshop 7 with a Wacom Intuos 3 Graphics Tablet.  The original image was done at 21,600 x 14,400 pixels, allowing for more detail.  Sadly, working with an image that size is hard for my computer to handle, and I couldn't get it to convert to .png to be uploaded to my Zazzle.com account until I reduced the size to 10,800 x 7,200 pixels.  The good news is, that's still 300ppi on a 36" x 24" poster/print.
 
Thanks for the comments and questions.  :)

Really nice work there!

Common Loon brought into my mind the comedy film History of the World Part 1., wherein a nobleman comes to King Ludvig and sprouts out: "Sir, the people are revolting!!", to which Ludvig replies "Yeah, they are really disgusting aren't they?" :D

Here I was thinking it might be a self portrait, Frank! :p

Beautiful non-the-less!
Kindness costs nothing but the returns are beyond counting.

Those are pretty amazing, Frank.  I like the 'dees in particular.

I like the feel of 3D immersion on the Blue Jay
