100 Species Challenge

I've figured out that doing random requests really isn't going to help me improve, especially when it comes to anatomy and technique. Since I want to be a biological illustrator when I'm done with college, I figured I should practice illustrating. This will be a log of my progress throughout the challenge. Any feedback and advice would be greatly appreciated

Also, I have no intention of doing this in order.

Update: I am, in all likelihood, going to redo the ones I have done so far. The ones I have done so far are no longer representative of the quality of my work.

So it's almost 1 am where I am and now, tonight of all nights, I get this really hardcore craving for homemade spaghetti sauce. I mean, I could try and whip some up, but it's midnight. I need to be up in the morning, I can't be putting together a meal with a 2 hour cook time. Why can't I have these cravings at a normal hour and have the junky ones at night. 
100 Species Challenge #56: Falconiformes by Sabhira
100 Species Challenge #56: Falconiformes
It's been ages since I uploaded anything, much less a 100 Species challenge entry! Those feathers were a big pain in the ass, but I think they turned out fine.  Made with Faber-Castel Polychromos pencils on 9x12 Kona paper. C&C encouraged
Weird cat by Sabhira
Weird cat
So for the first time in who knows how long, my graphics tablet and its pen were in the same place at the same time, so I decided to take advantage before one disappeared. Didn't do anything too fancy, just a cat. Enjoy
So for the past while now, I've been in the process of stretching my lobes. For the most part, it's been an enjoyable experience, and people think it's neat that I'm stretching two piercings per ear. It doesn't even hurt all that much, and that's even with the big jump I just did. But holy shit on a stick it itches! OMG I want to just take a sandpaper-wrapped paintbrush handle and shove it through my ears so badly, but I can't do that. No, at best I can rub oil into them and only dream of violating my lobes. 

:icontealdeerplz:: It's short. Read dammit!

Bonus Complaint: Been so long since I've been in here everything seems so strange and unfamiliar, and I don't like it! :grump:

So lazy!

I have more ceramics work to upload, including a finished ocarina, and my Cheshire cat jug, but I haven't felt the desire to photoshop the photos I took together. It's not like it's even gonna take that long anyways.

As I can't tell exactly where you are at the moment, I'll take a wild-assed guess and bid you a hearty "good morning!" Sabhira. I know you said, "no thanks; but please do me the favor of allowing me to express gratitude (it's good for me ;) (Wink)) for your visiting and viewing my art, for the llama and for sharing your own work and unique style for my enjoyment. I especially like your nature illustrations. (Your falcon is beautiful and stunning, btw.)
