Shadow of the Forest by windfalcon Shadow of the Forest by windfalcon
You know what birds are completely mind-blowingly awesome?  Harpy Eagles.  These eagles hunt in the thick rainforests of South America and their giant talons are strong enough to crush the skulls of monkeys.  MONKEYS.  They also have these deep, dark eyes set in a pale gray face which makes them look even more badass, and then, of course, that majestic crest. 

The Harpy Eagle.  Boss of the Rainforest.

Acrylic on two turkey feathers.

Gorgeous. It takes a lot of skill to paint on a feather. I tried it once and it just did NOT work. The feather wanted to curl up and it just frustrated me.

The trick is to spray it with fixative beforehand :3  and for your first layer of paint, use a really watered down layer so when it dries, it 'glues' the vane together.
