feather raptor

It took over 60 hours but the bird… it’s finally done! This is without doubt the most extensive and best piece of work I’ve ever done, and damnit I’m proud!

Many many thanks to the people who sat through the many streams of me zoomed in to like 500% drawing feathers for hours, you guys helped a lot

Keep an eye on my etsy for the prints of this pretty boi coming soon (A3 and A1 for sure, who knows what other sizes, how exciting >_>)

anonymous asked:

Can falconers gift their birds feathers? I've been looking for the laws around that topic but I can't find anything.

Yes, but only to individuals or organizations with valid permits to keep them. The official word from the Federal Falconry Regulations text is:

ii) You may donate feathers from a falconry bird, except golden eagle feathers, to any person or institution with a valid permit to have them, or to anyone exempt from the permit requirement under §21.12. (which is here)

So basically you can only legally own bird of prey feathers if you are a member of a federally recognized Native American Tribe, a licensed falconer, or a member of a school or organization that has the valid permits to legally possess raptor feathers.

I wanted to do another Warcraft ‘fashion’ piece, and with all this hot weather I just have to do a troll lady. Blizzard I’m just saying: Give me more tropical troll wear.
