The rare and radiant pigeon whom the angels named Lahore

A book of fancy pigeons intrigued me. I thought this type, called a Lahore pigeon, looked like a little Clydesdale horse. Digital coloring is still a mystery; this is supposed to be more sketchy but I'm still frustrated. I used some weird brush and just colored on top of a sketch in Photoshop.

Mmm, split complimentaries

Oh, how I love getting new art supplies in the mail! I had been wanting an orange watercolor for a while, since they're kind of hard for me to mix and not make mud. I decided on perinone orange. I also heard a recommendation for perylene green.

I painted this picture with these 2 colors. It's a very strange-looking maned wolf, but what're ya gonna do? I really like this green, it makes nice shadow colors and browns. The orange is a bit redder than I would've liked, but overall I think I'll be happy with it. Thanks, Daniel Smith!

World's Fastest Dancer

This is another type of sketch I do, animals in weird, anatomically impossible poses. This is supposed to be a cheetah by the way. He likes to boogie.

ETA: I like how one spot seems to have floated off his tail in the frenzy.
