20 minute pose. Loved having to deal with crossed limbs.
Such an amazingly challenging pose! Wished it lasted longer.
Apologies for the desmbodied legs. Focusing on only the lower body leaves not a whole lot of time for the upper body. Here I was thinking that I almost had the structure of the knees and ankles down…Think I still need to work on that.
Really trying to buckle down on how legs work. I think I did all right at the foreshortening on her upper leg. This was a five-minute study and I even got some shading in.
Bilateral gynandromorphism: a really fancy way of saying “half male, half female”.
This genetic anomaly is usually restricted to arthropods, but has been known to express itself in birds, as well. More interesting reading here.
Oh wow! Every time I see an asymmetrical animal I have to know more. I wonder what one looks like when in flight? Would this butterfly compensate for one wing being larger?

A much better marker piece, I really like how the warm and cool greys blend. :) Evil peacock is gonna smack you with his wing!
Friend lends me her Copic markers for a few hours. This started out as a raccoon being heroic, but then she requested it become a Tanuki (hence the balls), and then the red marker shading looked kinda like blood so now this raccoon is just bailing from the scene of the crime while in a fireman hat.
As you can see I have no idea how Copics work, but once told that they were like watercolors I got a better idea.
