The bald eagle, an icon of majesty and grace, is a much-loved subject of carvers, sculptors, and artists. However, accurately capturing and portraying the physical splendor of the American national symbol can be a challenge if you're not working with an authentic model. In The Illustrated Bald Eagle, illustrator, sculptor, and wilderness enthusiast Denny Rogers offers meticulous and comprehensive reference drawings as a solution to this dilemma. A result of Denny's careful study of a live eagle, these drawings deliver every realistic detail of the bird - down to each feather - that can be infused into your artistic creations.
Once available in full-size prints, these informative drawings by Denny Rogers were immensely popular among bird carvers and painters for their anatomical accuracy. Now, with the release of The Illustrated Bald Eagle, you can pore over every detail from each print in an easy-to-access volume.
In this thorough and fascinating visual study of the bald eagle, you'll find:
- Proportion charts that reduce each full-scale measurement so that accurate patterns can be created in any size.
- Detailed line drawings of flight and contour feathers
- Exclusive color charts with paint references created by award-winning bird carver Lori Corbett
- An opening chapter of in-depth information regarding the bald eagle's habitat and physiology
