Okay. I hope you like it. Please leave nice notes, and comments or suggestions. I won't have time to re-draw for the derby. But, I could learn a thing or two, no doubt! I'd appreciate you all sharing your infinite wisdoms.

Cute idea! What I'd probably do to revise, if you ever get around to it, would be to make the feathers on the body a bit less obvious (more beige/brown, less white), since you want to draw attention to the head more.

I've seen many bad bird moltings, and it ain't pretty

I wondered if it had too much white. You confirmed my own doubts. Maybe I can find time to fix it and get another version up. I'm on a deadline, and the holidays and all. You know how it is. Still. Thanks for taking the time to comment, you're a good person.

We have some bald eagles that live not far from our house. They are awesome birds. I really like this Monkeyswag. Good lines and a cute twist.

Thank you. I experimented with the feather tips, I like the way the layers turned out. I had him with a eaglet, but it became too much of a wildlife design, and not so much a comic take on bald.

I'm thinking of taking it down, I'll check it in the morning, to see if it's still a bust. I'm sure it'll be gone. Low, low votes, and little chatter, it must suck. Who knew? It was worth a try. Next time, maybe.
