Yellow-Breasted Bird by horusfeathers Yellow-Breasted Bird by horusfeathers
This bird took me four days to complete. Medium is colored pencil. Dimensions (of bird) are about 6.5" (width) by 5" (height). I drew this from a photograph from a calendar, but unfortunately the photo was unlabeled, so credit goes out to whoever took the photo.

This is a Blue-Winged Mountain Tanager (Anisognathus flavinucha) of Venezuela.

wow! i see a bird *points* that is so realistic, and that you did it in colored pencils :faint:
really, it looks like a photo!
by any chance were the pencils prismacolors?
the shading in the eye is superb.
i can not hold a coherent thought for ore than 4 seconds today, sorry for my incomprehensible-ness.

This is a type of Euphonia (a tanager), but I can't tell exactly which species. Go here: [link] and scroll down to the Euphonia species to see if you can recognize your birdie. :)

That's the worst picture of an elephant I've seen.

Looks like a stunning bird though. It looks like it could leap out of my monitor and claw at my eyes with its detailed claws.

Hmmm, it looks like a mixture between a Tropical Parula and a Rufous Sided Towhee (Yes, I'm a bird freak). Anyways, I love the detail you've put into it! Great job! +fav!
