After the studious detail I went into doing Rick Grimes, I decided to loosen things up a little by setting myself an hour each day to paint an animal. I just picked ones I found on the web (if any I’ve used happen to be yours and you don’t want them here on the site, let me know). You can see the paintings here.
For the most part, I’m pleased with the result, the Wolf and the Raven particularly hitting the spot. I was rushing a bit at the end with the Wolf and ended up scribbling in a background which I actually really liked; hence I used that style for the Raven and Black Bear Cub as well (thanks to CaseyNealArtwork for the use of his photo) as those three animals are part of a poem that my friend Dave is currently writing, so it made sense to have them all similarly painted.
Hope some of them take your fancy!
I’m outta here!
