Steller’s Sea Eagle 🦅

This has nothing to do with today’s Inktober prompt – Swing, I didn’t get much inspiration even after looking at lots of pictures of swinging monkeys, swinging bats and even swinging sloths.

So, here’s an eagle instead. However, let me tell you about the Steller’s sea eagle if you’re not familiar. He’s the heaviest in the world with a wingspan of up to 2.5 metres (8ft 2in) and the largest raptor.

This species is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN. They are legally protected but many threats to their survival include habitat alteration, industrial pollution, and overfishing, which in turn decrease their prey source.

Painted/drawn with Kuretake black and grey ink on 1557 180gsm bright white heavy paper.

As you can see here, the ink was flowing thick so a bit tricky to restrict it to where you want it. Ink drawings are only ever one step away from disaster 😬
