'A pair of fluffy legs and neck' by Himmapaan 'A pair of fluffy legs and neck' by Himmapaan
‘Emus… are like a fluffy pair of legs and neck’, according to my friend and Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs co-contributor, Marc. Both his comment and my drawing were inspired by this brilliant video, Emu Tango.

Sepia ink and gouache on grey toned Strathmore paper, 108 x 143mm.

The emu's pose and expression give this piece a really fun energy.

Emus are one of my favorite species of birds. :heart:

Wonderfully luscious feathers! It contrasts nicely with the delicate white linework in the background.

(While I'm here, happy (early?) birthday! :hug: )

I really like Emus, they are such characters :D I had one hand-raised Emu sleeping next to my tent on a campground in Australia...and she woke me up in the morning by pecking at my tent XD

I think I'm starting to love your extant bird illustrations just as much as your Mesozoic dinosaur stuff. The amount of personality in this is just wonderful, the expression on the face and the movement of the body are so fun to look at. I'm also impressed by your technical ability as always, especially in the texture and complexity of the body feathers. I really like the white lines of the background, and how they outline the plant. I'm curious how you achieved that effect - I'm assuming that it's white gouache; did you use a use a dip pen for applying it? Or is it white ink?

Emus are so bizarre, and this one looks like he's daring me to challenge him about it. Seeing as I know the outcome of the Emu War did not favour humans, I will not take him up on the dare.

lol coming from an aussie, thats a pretty darn awesome picture, and very cute. Detail in the legs is really good!

In real life, they are actually rather terrifying ^^; AWESOME animals, but scary.
