day five - zebra finch

today i drew one of my favourite animals. finches are without a doubt the cutest and most furious of all birds, with gouldians being the most flashy, and zebras (see below) as the most enchanting.

animals with rosy cheeks are only second to watermelon babies. perhaps one day i'll draw that battle... cockatiels and zebra finches vs tapirs and emus.

unfortunately my scanner is not designed for drawings and so this guy's cheeks are a little lacklustre.

hopefully this most excellent of art installations will make up for it (you really can't get much better than trapping zebra finches in guitars...)
