Bearded Vulture by Blackpassion777 Bearded Vulture by Blackpassion777
An acrylic painting of a bearded vulture C:
About 6"x8"
Give or take about 9 hours of work

I tired to get the colors as close as possible, and I think I did alright C: These icky overhead lights are good for something besides headaches I guess.

[Random image off of google used as ref-not making any money offa this, most likely it'll be a gift lol so no worries random badass photographer]

It's good to see more art of these lovely birds about. Wonderful transitions between colors, and the slight stylization of the feather shapes makes this image very strong. :)

Outstanding colors. :) I really love the vibrant and well contrasted look of this painting. In fact I love all of your works because your color palette is extremely varied. lol

Also, it's funny how the one time I think "Ok this has to be a digital picture." you end up making a traditional one instead. :lmao: It threw me off since I got used to you using textures.

Ah, I learned about these guys about a month or so ago; amazing-looking birds.

Excellent work, by the way. The thumbnail led me to believe this was a photo.
