No, not the sports kind - the mountain kind. We went hiking over in the Olympics yesterday. It was so pretty and the weather was perfect. So this is sort of based on that. Expect probably two more in the same vein - but perhaps with more of a story. There was a really cool dry stream bed that was filled with mossy rocks that I want to draw and also some awesome fallen trees with cool roots. Hurrah!

My sister and I realized that Phil is most likely an Adelie penguin, so I decided I should start drawing him like that. I'm not so thrilled with the composition here, but I like how Phil came out.
I just changed it so that the ice is pushed over to the left and now I like the composition a lot better

Sifakas are my very favorite animal at the zoo lately (half grown tiger cubs are a close second). They are endlessly entertaining - always jumping around and performing ridiculous acrobatics. I went to the zoo the other day and drew them for a while. I happened upon those sketches just now so I did this. Hooray for the zoo!

Another study from reference. Reflected light is so interesting
And here is one from reference I did yesterday. Simultaneous contrast is crazy - all that blueish looking foam along the edge of the ocean is actually just desaturated orange. Crazy.
Odds are pretty good that I'll have some of my own stuff up later tonight.

The one on the bottom right is from reference, the other three are just messing around. I drew plants and landscapes at Huntington today, and I don't really feel like scanning my pen drawings right now, but I think they helped give me a point of reference for these little color sketches.
