Here I am with Australian Creatures, again! I have been swamped with projects/working on a personal project with a little Echidna (an Australian animal that looks like a Hedgehog Anteater), and so while I did not get the chance to break out my Prismacolors and sketch a bird from down under, I made a digital illustration using components of a watercolor and gouache illustration I'd done of a Kookaburra, a "little Twitter" from Oz who is a type of Kingfisher :-)
Since I digitally mirrored the original drawing of the bird, it ended up looking like two birds together. Playing around with color made it ultimately look like a crest, so, I gave it the word "The Kookaburra Kingfishers." Perhaps it's a family crest, for these little birds :-D When I get back to drawing, perhaps I'll have my Echidna meet one of these, or a Cassowary, or another winged Aussie Animal.
Okay, so, I barely got this in! Everyone interested in reading or posting for this avian theme of "Little Twitters," please sign up at Michael slash Mister Toast's blog at:
Have a great week! Love what I've seen so far, can't wait to see everyone's work when I pop over to all of your blogs (-:
