There are just one or two small and very rough sketches of crows in my collection. I seem to have stayed far away from drawing birds and animals with the exception of cows. This one is not from life. It was from a reference found in an article on beating bird flu! There were 4 steps to turning the reference into a finished drawing for a post relating a story of the results of my search on how the turkey got its name for the Illustration Friday topic for this week – Thanksgiving. One other advantage of using the digital medium is the ability to carry out various action on the object. Here the bird was flipped over to the other side as I wanted to place the speech bubble to the right.
