Animal Alphabets A-D

The new run of Animal Alphabets has begun!

It started a while ago actually, but I didn’t wanna do a blog post for every letter.  Which is just as well, because that first one really threw me for a loop and it took me forever to get started.

As I mentioned in my Just Sketching post, I’m doing these as sketches. Instead of fully inked and coloured pieces.

First up, as seen in the tweet, was an Afanc.  I’d never heard of one before, and when you image search it you get quite varied results.  So I wasn’t entirely sure what to draw.  I went with this.

Next up was a Brownie, which made me giggle thanks to my Girl Guiding history.  I did consider drawing a Guiding Brownie.  I also considered drawing a chocolate fudgy cake slice.  But I went with the intended one in the end.

C is for Cat Sidhe.  This was a fun one.  I may have used my black cat Fatty for reference.

Finally for this session is a Dryad.  After browsing Pinterest I had lots of good ideas for this one, but settled with this.

I’m pleased so far.  I’m tempted to redo the Brownie and the Dryad into full pieces.  Maybe one day.
