Made this in two parts. Not really finished but doubt that I’ll go back into it. First swipe was during crisis of live class while a highly disruptive student was acting out.

Not enough pigment on random plate with leftover paints to make a true black for his velvet jacket or browns for the depths of his dirty blonde hair. Just a sketch but the students loved it after class so… here ’tis.

Birds are fine but I love drawing all sorts of animals. This pup, for example. During stolen moments during two classes today.
