While researching different birds and beaks for a different project, I stumbled across the puffin who captured my attention. I fell in love with their cute triangle eye markings and their big colorful beaks. I did this study in an afternoon, researching different images and redrawing them to capture not only their likeness, but their attitude. I also created a larger image of a singular puffin with a beak full of fish, again looking to better understand these beautiful birds.
I dog sat these two dogs for a friend, in the process learning about their character, mannerisms, and attitude. Their owner had asked if I could draw them for her, so I happily obliged! Sadie on the left was a cheerful dog, always excited to play fetch and always wanting to be by your side. Finn was a very mischievous dog, focused, energetic, and looking for new ways to get in trouble. The challenge of drawing them was to capture their likeness as well as their contrasting personalities.
