War Bird by AlpoArts War Bird by AlpoArts
This is of a pencil drawing that I completed in July 2012.
A friend commissioned me to do it as a Veteran's Day present.
The veteran was the photographer who took the picture, and the original drawing was given to him.
It took me approximately 50-60 hours and 3 weeks to complete.
It was a very rewarding project and I was proud to do it.

Both Giclee and Fine Art Prints of this drawing are available on my Etsy site:
