Cheetahs or Elephants?

“Honeybee” (wip)

So here’s a little progress shot of my third piece for my “Share The Earth” series. While I’ve been working on this I’ve been wondering what should I draw for my fourth and final piece for the series. So far it’s a toss up between cheetahs and elephants. I like both so it’s a little difficult to decide. What do you think? Which would you like to see drawn, an elephant or a cheetah? 😊

Our Pollinators

I’ve been wanting to do a piece on bees for a while now and figured it would fit in with my “Share The Earth” series.

So far here’s my preliminary sketch for my third art card drawing of the series. It’s a little rough but it will get refined as I clean up a bit for inking. ☺

More Fur

I have to admit, fur is the most mind boggling thing to stipple but here I am about to go at it once again. Here’s the beginning of my next drawing, a snow leopard, for my “Share The Earth” series. These are some interesting creatures, survivors from the time of the saber tooth tiger, who are also known as “Ghosts Of The Mountains”, that roam the high altitudes of Central Asia. I’m rather fond of most creatures in the cat family but I haven’t given much attention to the snow leopard in favor of its more lowland cousin the cougar. So I’m learning much about this fascinating feline as I face the challenge of drawing its elusive beauty. Wish me luck. 😊

Sea Turtle

“Sea Turtle” by Q. Rumbley

Did you know the temperature of the sand where sea turtles lay their eggs effects the gender of the embryo? The warmer the sands are the more females are born. The cooler the sands, the more males are born. With rising climates and warmer temperatures more females are being born which could lead to an imbalance in the ratio of the genders and potentially a collapse in the sea turtle population.

This is my first completed piece for my four part art card series on animals effected by climate change. 😊

Almost Forgot

I’ve been so busy working on new ideas and getting this little bitty finished that I forgot to do a progress update since my last post. As you can see I’m almost finished. Should be done with this lovely creature by the end of the week. 😉
