Sketchin' Skills

"One must keep right on drawing; draw with your eyes when you cannot draw with a pencil."
 ~Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

In an effort to keep my sketchin' skills from floundering, I figure I should strive to work faster and more simply -- and keep right on drawing.  My tendency is to get bogged down in rendering and perfecting; there's something to be said for simplicity, though!

This week's Illustration Friday theme is "Messenger", so here we have a wee little owlet-in-training at Hogwarts.

Also, this is the second illustration for the children's book I've been working on.
