I drew this squirrel for a story a few months ago. A red squirrel collecting food for winter. When thinking about the theme of "hoard" I recalled my squirrel and have added acorns to the picture. Before he was just eating one but now after the weather has turned cold he is happily looking at his hoard of nuts and feeling very pleased with himself.
I used the copic marker pens again for this drawing. I do love the many shades of colours and layering affect. Still experimenting with them and how to put shade in.

Nice bold composition and use of colour. I really like the impenetrable inky pool of the eye (reminiscent of the acorns he/she wants so much :) Great take on the topic. PS ta for visiting my blog and site...appreciate it and your feedback!
