30 Day Art Challenge, Day 4!

Day 4: Draw an animal you think is really cute.

5" x 7" Prismacolor marker (with pencil outlines) on Stonehenge paper
Hummingbirds are by far my favorite animals. They're adorable and feisty, yet extremely territorial. I love watching them eat from the feeders I keep over the deck: at one moment serene, and at the next engaged in aerial combat.

This is one of the most candy-coated drawings I've ever made. The hummer's gorget (throat patch) has pale flecks in person; I drew them out from the base color with a Colorless Blender. Sadly, my scanner ate them all.
