For the Birds

Here it is so far. My Heron.
So far I am simply trying to keep the shape of the bird, the location of the major feathers and keep from destroying the drawing. At this point, I am thinking, "why did I start this?"
I do this all the time.
Once I get into a project, I am sure it is beyond me and feel like a total failure.
I can't do this.
I am no good, I will never get these detail right, who wants to draw all these features any ways, and why, if I have to do it, I did not simply paint it, It would be easier!
Leave this to real artists.
I always feel this way,
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
