“Peacock” (wip)

“It doesn’t matter how slow you go so long as you keep going.” ~ Chinese Proverb

I’m determined to finish this drawing but for the life of me it feels like my progress is moving at a snails pace. It’s challenging to fill in solid areas with a bunch of tiny dots but I am happy about what progress I have made and that I’m adamant about completing this. I tend to stick to doing drawings of a smaller size so finishing this is equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest for me, especially with the level of detail. I still have a number of feathers to finish and some work on defining the shadows and highlights more but I’ve got my fingers crossed for finishing this up in about a week or so. In the meantime have a wonderful Sunday afternoon. 😊

    1. It was a piece I started late last year and then shelved for a while before coming back to it. I wasn’t really paying much attention to the time it took but something like this would probably take 4 to 6 weeks of consistent work to complete.
