The first one is an osprey, which isn't an eagle. Apart from that, beautifully done.

Yeah some people pointed that out already, but psssst :D:D
No seriously, thanks for the hint. I relied on google when I was looking for a reference image. But I am glad it is detailed enough for such knowledgeable people as you can actually tell what kind of bird it is ;)

Awesome (how many times I've uttered that word about your images now? :D ) Your drawing style reminds me of John Howe's quite a bit.

Probably that is because I am heavily inspired and influenced by John. He is one of the reasons I started to paint and draw seriously :)

The first eagle is an osprey... but a very well painted one.
