Drawing a Day Challenge 2018: Day 20

Happy Friday, everyone!

I am so glad this week is almost over. My boys have been wrapping up their Odyssey of the Mind presentations this week (the Regional competition is tomorrow!), my daughter is in her last week of the modified swim season, and we are all just plain tired. My day started off with sunshine, coffee with a dear friend who I haven’t seen in forever, and of course, drawing!

TitlePenguin with Baby

Size: 5×7

Medium: Graphite pencil and white in gel pen

Inspired/nominated by: JoBeth R.! She was first one to suggest this, but there have been multiple suggestions afterwards for penguins!

Favorite parts: I love how the background turned out! I originally was just going to have the sky blend into the snowy ground, but it felt like I was taking the easy way out. I added some subtle penguins in the background, and now it just feels complete!

Challenging parts: The baby’s down. It was a lot like working on the wolf’s fur yesterday, but as it was on a much smaller scale, it was a lot harder!

Product availability: The original drawing is available in my Etsy store here, and prints are here 🙂
