Fanart-in-disguise, or:  
... Or, "How I can get away with fangirling in class".
I hesitate to post this piece only because it's not actually fanart, per se...

The assignment was to do a pen-and-ink drawing incorporating the elements of man, pet, and machine. Obsessed as I am, and always looking for opportunities to ... er, "make my assignments fun", I asked if it was allowed to combine any two of those three elements. To my surprise, it was! And I knew I wanted to do something with a bird.

I suppose I should also say that this was in many ways inspired by ravenwoodiii's series of fics posted a while ago.

To that end:
(warning, it's kind of big.)

And now I scurry away to bed, just a little embarrassed. ^^;;

This looks awesome. I really like how you did the bird and the detail on the plummage (both real and machine) really stands out, and the eyes. *_*

...wow. That's just... wow. Did you have a reference for the wing? Because that's really impressive. Of course, I'm a sucker for b&w. Would you mind if I posted this with Circumstances? It fits so very well.

Re: Oooooo
Thank you!
I had a reference for the bird; the mechanics of the wing I had to make up. Looking at bone structure helped a lot with the framework. To be honest I'm not entirely sure if it's something that would actually -work-, but it looks alright, and that's really what matters more since I'm not building anything here.

Of course you can post it - I'd be honored. ^_^ I have a better-quality scan if you need it, too; otherwise, just credit. ^^
