FEBRUARY Animal & Wildlife Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to the February Fur, Feathers and Scales monthly challenge!

You are free to use these any way you like. Each member taking part can create one or many works using the chosen reference/s (whole or cropped). You may use any medium. All are mine except the ones marked morguefile free fotos.

I hope lots of you will take part in this challenge and show your Valentine love of all critters

ON THE 20TH OF EACH MONTH PARTICIPANTS WILL UPLOAD THEIR INTERPRETATIONS OF THE REFERENCES FOR COMMENTS.

PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD BEFORE THE 20TH OF FEBRUARY AS IT IS SO MUCH MORE FUN WHEN EVERYONE UPLOADS AT MORE OR LESS THE SAME TIME.


Grasshopper about to hop (morguefile free fotos)


Rescue kitty Chester


Pigeon shadow (morguefile free fotos)


Ruidoso NM deer


Koi pond (morguefile free fotos)


Frog fixation (morguefile free fotos)


Goats galore (morguefile free fotos)


Coons playing cards


Yorkshire terrier pup Sophie


Sora bird at birdbath

That's all folks Enjoy

Re: FEBRUARY Animal & Wildlife Challenge

I'm usually the last to post my finished painting, if I get that far. So at least I can be the first to thank you for hosting and the selection of photos!

Re: FEBRUARY Animal & Wildlife Challenge

Hey Kay M, Wendy, Federico (love your blog), and Lori! Hope to see your amazing stuff on the 20th. The stuffed coons playing cards are in a New Mexico southwest furniture store owned by Texans we know...they have live snakes, rats and mice in there, too. So I'll try and get more photos next trip.

Yes, the raccoons are stuffed by a taxidermist, just too funny not to take their photos to post.
