Bird Panoply by EWilloughby Bird Panoply by EWilloughby
36 small bird illustrations for work.

Proof that I can draw extant dinosaurs too!

A cookie for anyone who can name all 36 species. They're all very common birds of the eastern US.

Many of these poses are loosely referenced from creative commons images.

You got every one except the western blue (it's actually an eastern!). Very nice work. 

Incidentally, I'm currently doing a set of watercolor bird paintings for the natural history museum in Shanghai, so if you want to stick around for a few weeks you'll see a lot more familiar birds on this account. :)

Absolutely beautiful work. I love the integration of linework and colours, it really makes them pop out of the background!

Am I the only one who initially read "bushtit" as "bullshit"?
