My first year at work I used to have 10-15 minutes in the morning before I got a project to work on. As I waited I used to do quick sketches of random animals. Last week, I was going through a flash drive I haven't used in a couple years. I found a sketch of this cardinal along with a couple others. When I drew it, I had planned on painting it but I guess I forgot and just never got to it.
I was determined to finish off what "past" version of me intended to do. So here it is! Still needs some more work but at least I finally got around to painting it.
