Bummer! said Abner

Here are two progressive images from sketch to ink of the rhinocerous character, “Abner being bummed”. Only got five more images to ink before I can start watercoloring all of them. This is a fun project.

just finished the research …

Am beginning a project about Abner the baby rhino… wow I love looking up the info about the animals, locations in Africa. There is so much wildlife there. Did you know that there are black rhino’s who have a prehensile snout, so that they can grab branches and strip the leaves off? And then there are white rhino’s that have a wide grass eating/grazing snout? Ohhhh!!!!! and guess what, they are born without the horns… bet their Mom’s are saying YaY! about that!!!
