Illustration Friday: Wings?

This creature came from a description in a book The Dog in the Dark by Barb and J. C. Hendee.  The description includes a large wingspan, but I didn't show them in the drawing because I was more interested in the face and how the feathers came back from the head.  I had to guess whether it had a more human face or a more birdlike face--so I went with birdlike.  

I haven't done a drawing in so long it was nice that it all came back to me.  I'm still not sure if I like the way I colored it (using watercolor pencils)  Here it is in ink as I was starting to lay down the background color.
