White-crowned Hornbill

Drawing I did of a White-crowned Hornbill that I photographed at the San Diego Zoo. These birds have a real interesting beak. The biggest challenge I had with this drawing was doing the white feathers on its head. Even though the lighting is not intense in this image, or in the photograph I shot, the feathers were blown out and I had to do some inventing/guess work. I am quite happy with the way my drawing turned out.

Drawing I did of my sister's dog. I thought the drawing was going to take a lot longer due to all the curly hair. I had a lot of fun trying to design it all out, it is definitely a challenge, but a fun one, as it provides a good opportunity for interpretation. As long as the design doesn't destroy the form, there is a lot you can do with hair like this.
