Again, no reference photos...if she is knitting incorrectly, we'll just have to say she is drunk.

topic: Wings

The thylacine, also sometimes called as the Tasmanian tiger, is my latest favorite recently extinct mammal.  The last of these dog-sized carnivorous marsupials (with freakishly wide-hinging jaws...seriously, watch this video) is believed to have perished in a Parisian zoo in the 1930s, after the rest were hunted into oblivion by sheep ranchers.  True story, kids.

I think it would be sweet to do a series of winged modern extinctions.  And yes, the passenger pigeon would have an extra set of wings. I'm actually getting a little bit too excited about that idea.  Because awesome.

Not my favorite one to date; it might be the catawampus ellipse.  I've been doing these Illustration Friday topics without any reference photos.  Not as a matter of principal or anything--just for speed.  So this is the best wishing well my memory can conjure up.

Oh, but I do love painting wood grain.

topic: Ocean

I'm definitely enjoying having some structure to my weekly sketching.  Even if I am consistently 3 weeks behind...

Will have to work on that.
