Natalie,

Cute ostrich.  I think that hairy eyeball staring at me will haunt me forever.  Great features or is it considered fur?  Whatever - it looks great.

Maryna,

I like your ostrich.  Cute little critter.  His eye seems more rectangular than round, though.

Excellent, Maryna :clap: :clap: :clap:  That straight line at the side of the eye is actually a "wiper" that periodically moisturizes the eye surface similar to a lizard.

A class a day keeps you healthy and alive! Love the big eyes of the ostrich. All renditions are very good! :D

I activated my old Rotring radiograph pens. Did this one with 0,50. The reason why I could not get the very fine tonal differences is because the 0,3 pen is clogged. I carry this pen with me now together with my drawing book.

This is my rendition. Thank you Dennis again. This class captivated me all through.
