I painted this Ornate Hawk-eagle recently. I had planned on taking pictures as I worked on it but I completely forgot. He's supposed to be looking left, but I think I failed to convey that. Also, the cere should be closer to the eye, and the eye itself should be larger. Otherwise, I'm fairly satisfied with it. I haven't painted anything in years, so I'm kind of surprised it came out as nice as it did.

Also "cere" is not recognized by my spellcheck. This spellcheck is garbage.
