Heh...this is about as close as I get to life-like drawings. They just never look quite right when I draw them. This one I liked though.
There's a bit of a story behind this picture. This was originally a commission from a local Boy Scout troop. They needed a banner that represented their patrol group animal...a blue falcon. So I drew the picture, and not long after they tell me that it's nice, but that they don't need it anymore. Why? Because they decided not to become a patrol group. *sigh* Oh well... I love this picture though, despite all the trouble I got from its commissioners. ^_^
