Nobody replied? Well, I will! Excellent drawing. Really great detail. The only suggestions I have:

If you are going for photorealism and accuracy, then the beak isn't big enough, not just in length, but also width and height. Their beak is actually surprisingly large. You have all the details of the beak down, just the size is a little off, it kind of plays with the perspective too since it should be bigger.

The other is the eye. Eagle's eyes change color as they mature, the older they are, the brighter their eye is. The color of your eagles head suggests its more mature, but the color of its eye suggests its younger. If you brighten the eye, and brighten the specular highlight you have in it just a little bit, this will be a beautiful work of art. I already love it, this is just my 2 cents

TofurkeyMan: Well I was thinking about back of the head is not detailed enough .... actually i went wrong when drawing that area .... But i never had any doubt about the beak and the eye ... because i spent lot of time and was very careful when drawing it ... especially the eye ... This was my second graphite rendering (Now im working on the fourth) ... and i think i have to do more research ..... Thanks for pointing out the errors man ... really appreciate it. Thanks.

IIIXAaronXIII .... thanks brother .... Looking forward for another entry in the contest .... i think its time for another winning man .... hope it will be this month.

Hey Hey Alekzsander !!! .... its amazing how you guys are catching up these stuff ...... I had no idea how to render those feathers when i got started ..... Actually i honestly admit that i have failed to catch up the actual detail of feathers when rendering it ..., this is my level of skill for now .... and i have a big hope to improve it in time ..... Thanks for the comments everyone !!!!
