Bald Eagle Colored Pencil - Work in Progress

My latest work in progress is a SUPER detailed drawing of a bald eagle catching a fish.  I wanted to take a break from the paintings and switch over to a medium I have much more control over.  I'm finding that the eagle is going to take a bit longer than expected.  Actually, this drawing is turning out to be quite painful.   All the small details in each individual feather!  What was I thinking?

A few months later, working on this about an hour or two at a time (because that's all I can do without going crazy!)  here is the finished drawing:

  I'm pretty pleased with it, but I think I'll switch to something less involved for my next project.
