As Thanksgiving approaches (it is only 4.5 months away), we are once again reminded of the majestic, almost-national-bird, the turkey. As usual in college, I had some downtime and decided to forever memorialize the flightless bird in charcoal. It took a few tries to get the head and feathers decent enough to allow recognition, but it could still use a bit of work.

Meh, it's not terrible for a half-hour's work I'd wager. I think it's clearly recognizable as a turkey, even if the feathers and feet say differently. Oh, so you think you're better than me? Well bring it buster, it's on. I'll see your rendering with my expert shading and light-accents. Pfft, you call that a rendering?
