Parrot of Bones

I am no longer a “pet” person. I haven’t been for about two years. The concept of keeping an animal in your house – let alone buying special food for it – is so foreign to me now.

For the sake of time, I fused a lot of the bones together, so this isn’t an accurate skeleton. I leveraged my artistic license, like a pro and drew the cool, eye candy elements. The tarp background is sporting a cat tail (orĀ “cotton tails” as my British friend, Grant calls them) pattern. The skull was my primary focus and was originally going to be “Day of the Dead Parrot”, but turned into what you see instead. I left the floral latinesque border but didn’t develop it anymore than just a first-pass sketch.
