Bear and Coyote

And here’s something completely different.  Bear and Coyote. I think Coyote shouldn’t have stolen Bear’s fish. But Coyote, being the trickster he is, will get out of it somehow. smiley 15

Full Disclosure:
I should mention that, although this is in a tribal style with Native American folklore characters, I’m not a member of any indigenous nation.  I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking I identify as a Native Artist.

I don’t plan to do any more in this style because I’m worried that it counts as cultural appropriation.  I did this one because I think the style is beautiful and I wanted to see what I could do with it.  I really like how it turned out and it’s my own idea and my own story, but it isn’t in a style I have a cultural connection with.  I don’t want to upset anyone and I can see how it might, so I’ll limit myself to just this one.

Illustration Friday: Children

I realized I’ve never posted any realistic portraits of people to this blog. So, I created this just to show I can. It’s a portrait of my daughter Katie. It’s drawn in Photoshop using a photo I took a few weeks ago as reference. This is an actual digital drawing, not a Photoshop filter trick.

It also counts for this week’s Illustration Friday prompt of Children. Well, child, anyway.
