Inktober 2021 Day 16 – Compass

Rushing but having fun! I have said for a long time that I want to learn how to be looser with my art. This is going to force that!

This is for all the wildlife rescuers out there whose compass is True North.

This was a fast one with the brush and a few pens. I am needing to catch up!!! This comes from a story that had me laughing and supporting Wild Heart Ranch Wildlife Rescue this summer. A state of the art, new racoon holding pen was breached by the little rascals in rehab this summer. They call it The Great Escape and the rehab director kept us on the edge of our seats with the hilarious antics as they worked to recapture 40 escaped babies.

60 were still in the cage, but 40 sets of destructive little hands can wreak havoc.

4 are still roaming the wildlife center at night, but the others have been safely rehabbed and released where they can live without wreaking destruction. You can’t help but love these cuties tho.

Thank you to all the rehabbers out there giving their life to help wildlife.

Bandits

This is Notch – I think she may be a first time mother. She has at least 2 babies so she got bold enough to come up to the deck. It seems they get hungry about this time of year. I also see them in the deep winter when the snow is thick. Otherwise, they only visit at night. How do I know? My tomatoes growing on my second story deck keep disappearing.

Class Final

The final lesson was about fur, feathers, and creating the illusion of depth.  This was intense and I have much admiration for people who do Natural History Illustration for a living!

This was a great class and I have learned so much!
