More stuff for Anthrocon. I’ve been fooling with these little small-format portraits, of various species holding hearts. Which sounds incredibly cheeseball, I realize, and it totally is, but it provides a unifying theme beyond "All those species I always mean to paint and never quite figure out a format for." There’s also a sun conure and a flying fox, and I’ve got a tamandua in the works.
There’s something very pleasant about doing these. Something about the textures, and the big paint strokes and the colored pencil colors. I can’t get enough of the texture background thing. I feel like it’s going somewhere, I’m just not quite sure where, yet.
