🌺🕊🌚🐳🌵 NEW STUFF!!! 🦓🐍🍓🌸🌝
It’s Fridayyyy🥂 and I just posted a bunch of new studs and pins in my shop! To all my new followers here, everything in my shop is hand-drawn/cut/assembled by me, and every charm is drawn for every order, which means you get a unique, mini-piece of original art to wear 🌞
New designs here include the belted kingfisher, grapefruit slices, the coontie butterfly, strawberries, barrel cacti, spotted eagle ray, and the pygmy seahorse 🍊 I’m still tweaking a few more designs, so stay tuned through the next few weeks 😁 (link to my shop in my profile✨✨) #SweetDeaEtsy
My pencil has to be nice and sharp to get these fine lines as precise as they need to be! Straight, sharp edges like this are fairly rare in nature, but you often see them on the flight feathers of bird wings like these. The slight overlap and sharp lighting means there is a distinct shadow under each feather, allowing you to see each individual shape exactly.
Two weeks ago I found out that we were having a baby girl, and then started thinking of the neediest way of spreading the word 😊sea turtles are male or female depending in the temperature the eggs are incubated. Warmer eggs result in females and cooler eggs in males!
I'm brainstorming a way of turning this into a card with a thermometer 😊
I don't like ending on a downer but there were reports recently that due to an increase in global temperatures there are more female turtle babies than males.

Check out this commission piece I did before Christmas for my partners uncle. He loves wrens and I think I captured a sense of strength, pride and nobility in his face and expressions. What do you guys think?. 🧐🖌 Commission work is available on all animals not just you’re beloved pets so please get in touch for prices 🖌💰
I think it about time for one of those “pencilextenderthings” from Derwent.
Of course, I’ve got some new pencils in the drawer alredy... but I always use each one, until nothing is possible anymore 😂 Did I ever mention, than I love pencils? Of course I love all sorts of art supplies, but graphite pencils are just my all time favorite!!!! 😍 What’s yours? #pencil#derwent#wildlifeart
I wasn't quite happy with my digital attempt (which can be seen on my Facebook page), so I decided to re-do my Asian elephant in traditional media. I have learnt a lot from digital art, but my favourite happy medium is always paint and pencil - in this case gouache. Do you prefer digital or traditional media?
This is just one illustration of several that I created for my elephant species identification poster, which will compare and differentiate the three elephant species. I bet some of you are wondering what the third species is? It's a topic I have really enjoyed researching and I will post more about it in the coming days.

Say hello to 'Maharani' ('Queen'), my commissioned piece for the lovely @mamatheresamaria! It's one of my personal favourites and simultaneously, most challenging artworks. I layered a hyper-detailed black and white pattern with gold stripes and florals in the background. The creation of this was no-doubt a journey. I didn't know where I was going with it. I took long breaks. I asked for tons of feedback. I looked at it for long periods of times. I 'finished' and then worked some more. And, in the end, I feel proud of what I made. 💎'Maharani' is a testament to quiet strength. The kind that is unwavering. As they say, 'Tigers don't lose sleep over the opinion of Sheep'. The purpose of illustrating such a powerful and commanding beast lying so effortlessly in front of a flower bed is to pay ode not only to her royalty but also to state that vulnerability, beauty and true strength can and do co-exist. 🖌2ft x 3ft acrylic and ink on canvas
Check out the last couple of photos to see the creation. Hope you love it as much as I do.
Which of these animals is your favorite? 🐯 or 🐼?
