Hard to think that such the relatives of such a cute little fella would carry the Bubonic Plague that wiped out so much of Europe, but that's the way it is. Lesson: don't trust adorable things. And on an artistic note, this was again an attempt at drawing from the shoulder, so I was just focusing really on the gestural initial shapes, and only spent minimal time on any of the details. Threw him together in probably around 15 minutes. I'm hoping at some point to come up with some way of propping my sketchpad up so I'm drawing on an inclined surface–I really think that would help get me some more fluidity in my lines, rather than gripping the pencil so tightly and drawing with my wrist. Anyway, enjoy.
