TOO MANY HOURS IN THIS ONE!
« on: March 28, 2013, 01:01:34 AM »
Well this is my 9.... MONTH project as of now. I guess I'm about 91% done give-or-take. Should compete well. I see some things now that I hate but I still reckon it's my best bird to date. It's a Northern Shoveler drake... mostly hated by hunters but he sure is pretty in full plumage (and I really don't mind them). The color pictures are from a cellphone.
MEANING: I will be uploading better eventually. Thanks for looking and tell me what you guys think ~Andre'

I'm definately not a judge of this kind of thing, but it sure looks wonderful to me.  :bigup:

I was watching some Shovelers a few weeks back.  You are spot on the money!  Excellent, excellent detail.  Well done!

Unbelievable!  The detail is amazing.
