Have I mentioned how much I love drawing animals with natural anatomy moving and doing things humans do? There's something in it that I find really charming and I prefer it over more drastically anthropomorphized animals any day. Seems kinda silly I don't draw these kind of animals more often, really. I guess I've just been too caught up in horror and mythical creatures to remember that this is fun, too.
I also tested a new painting method where I first colored the silhouette with a single color and then painted the real colors on top of it. I really like the results and I'm thinking I could test how this works for a full blown painting.
