Run by Himmapaan Run by Himmapaan
I'm afraid this is simply one of those images that planted itself in my head and demanded to be drawn. It has no other merit whatever.

My friend (and Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs blogmate), Marc and I are not especially adept at running; but we were obliged to run in order to catch a train recently. It was something of a study in contrasts: Marc with his quick, high-stepping gait and I with my great, long, loping strides.

Pencil, coloured pencils, Conté and gouache on recycled paper.

Utterly darling! I love your self-portraits as a crane and when you assign others to a species. I like guessing how it translates into their character. :)

So charming! Which reminds me, I've wanted to draw myself as a disgruntled ptarmigan, especially considering it is still fairly chilly over here. :giggle:

Wow! That looks very realistic. Your work here is close enough to make people believe you actually saw this happen.

Nah, it looks nothing like his signature gait. ;)

Flying is too expensive; in all senses. ;)

Hah, this is cute. I love the soft feather textures and the green-to-violet iridescence on the magpie's tail is gorgeous.

*Rubs chin* She would not be 'fat', simply in robust health. And she is much more elegant than she declares. ;)

Nope - and make sure you include a lolling tongue and something to the effect of "WARGRARGARBLARBLARBL."
