Little European kingfisher. Pencils on Bristol paper. The size is 4x5" - the image here is about actual size.
The reason it's so small is because I spoilt it a bit, so I trimmed it down. It was originally done A5 size, the composition was better, and I had the whole reflection of the branch and bird in the water. It looked nice until I tried to add the background, with powdered graphite (the real stuff this time, not my home-made shavings lol). Unfortunately graphite in loose form has a tendency to react with the oil in your fingers left from handling the paper. Let's just say next time I want to use this stuff, I'll put on surgical gloves before I start![link]
Lovely reference thanks to *Jamie-MacArthur
