Fearless Friday, Penguin Love


Who can resist cute penguins?




I just love the way they proudly strut around

The photo is from Unsplash

It’s a free photo sharing site that I often use for painting and drawing

Let’s recreate these adorable penguins today





I chose the two on the right that look like they are speaking to each other

and holding hands {wings?}





After drawing the basic shapes in pencil,

I went back over the drawing with a .03 waterproof black liner pen

adding head and facial details





Then I filled in the black areas with a marker brush pen

and began to add color





Shadows were added in the white areas with shades of gray markers

and pink for their feet and wings





Flicks and spritz of ice cool blue watercolor

and more details with black and white fine liner pens





“Penguin Love!”


“Penguin Love” is available on a variety of items in my Society 6 Shop here




Have fun, stay cozy and Be Fearless!

    Jenna, your tutorials are so enlightening. I’m amazed how you can break it down to teach us how to draw and paint. Penguins are so cute to watch, and their tuxedo like covering always makes me smile. My new MKC ornament addition to our tree this year is a pair of the penquin ornaments that I bought on sale after Christmas last year. They are regal, each wearing a crown.
