Ferocious III

October 6, 2011

The last one in the “Ferocious” series.

This one-eye-open-crazed zebra was the most fun to paint of the three. The other two “ferociouses” were gentle and calm, this one, not so much. I think I like his teeth best…glowing yellow on this scan, but big, and ready to chomp off an enormous chunk from any lurking kitty cats.

    *hugs* thanks for the lovely, lovely words, thoughts and comments this week.

    Okay now you’ve done it. People think I’m losing it…laughing suddenly out loud over my computer. I love this…so much…tooo much. Thank you for the giggles and guffaws.

    I simply adore this series…it would look so amazing framed and hung together on a wall…yummy. I’m glad that you’re busy with work, but sorry it’s not super fun stuff. Why can’t we live in a world where a gal can just paint zebras for a living? (When you’re not drawing elephants or Ellie Mae, of course!)

    Hey, this one looks like me.
    IF did “Stripes” last week. These would have been perfect!

    You are fantastic at wrapping those stripes around the contours of the dynamic Zebra shape.

      Oh, oh, Sarah, I meant to reply to this forever ago and meant to make the rounds. It’s been months. Been crazy busy and just didn’t have the go-go to visit. But think gs are quieting and I have some catching up to do! I hope you’re well and enjoying the holidays, with luck Nathan’s home.
      xoxo, p
