a beautifully presented image of Doris /the duck/. Looks ready to sell, in black and white. Lots of work gone into this piece. tiny lines, dots and stiples producing a lovely duck. Careful work all over. Presumably from a photograph, but exceptional quality. Like paraphrasing language in style.

    Part from a photograph, part from taxidermy, part in just real life. Just a mix of many, thanks for the good review once again

This little duck has quite a cheeky look and stance. I like your drawing style, it has a touch of realism without loosing the artistic freedom of free hand and artistic perogative which I think is better than pure realism although i do recognise tbe skill that also takes. Good luck

Doris the duck is very cute! Or should I say dapper :) Your work on her feathers is very realistic with attractive texture. I like your shading on her feet too and the tiny little details in her feathers and face that bring her to life so well.

This duck is so cute - I love the expression on his face - he looks very perky and friendly. As usual he is very accurately drawn and posed.

This seems to be a drawing of a young duckling, as least from the soft plumage on the breast and head of the subject. The catch light adds life to the image. Good positioning of the subject in the drawing. There seems to be a sense that that duck is on a slope. Overall very well done.
