The daily animal

Short story:

I like animals, and I like drawing and painting them.
For decades I've been trying to get better at it but I "never found the time".
Last year I decided to find time to do it, so I deleted my facebook and other such time wasters, and I started drawing animals every day.

The rule was simple: draw or paint animals every single day. The medium, quality, style, etc. are variable, to say the least.

I like the result so far (about 230 days), so I think I'll continue for the rest of my life. I hope I can also be commited to post here often (I tried years ago and I stopped when I didn't produce as much as I wanted).

Here come the first ones from the backlog, days 1 to 5: Rainbow lorkeet; Brush turkey; Ani; Ibis and chicken. The rest will be posted soon, a few at a time :)

Thanks in advance for any feedback. Enjoy!

Love 'em!

I used to very much enjoy drawing birds and wildlife but completely lost my confidence due to anxiety/depression problems a few years ago.

You've inspired me to have another go and try and get back into a very enjoyable hobby. Many thanks.

Keep up the good work and keep posting new additions.

Cheers

Thanks Corvus cornix!

I really recommend this exercise for confidence boost. You really don't need that much time to do a little sketch every day, even if it's not good, and I hope you can notice the progress.

Go for it, I say! :)

There's a lot of work there resparza, keep at it, i particularly like your more detailed works as shown in numbers 80 and 58. Good luck.

An enjoyable collection, keep them coming. My favorite so far is the tree frog.

Thanks Trevor and Fugl!
