Here’s a more developed sketch incorporating one of the pictures I shot Friday. I’m going to need to visit a pig farm to get my own shots, but these sketchy pigs will have to do for now. It’s going somewhere I like right now.
I’m still feeling my way to the shape of the wings at the moment and I’ll need a resource for them too pretty soon, although I don’t expect them to be too hard to find – I have so many photos of birds from visiting a sanctuary in England with my family in the fall of last year that I think I can manage to find some swans flapping amongst them and use them to figure out the shape. It worked out well with Daedalus.
