Was going through some old papers and found a whole batch of material that I was working on right before I fell into this world of children's illustrators, comics and art college.  It's so long since I've come across any past work that I was really pleased with.  So I thought I'd post a couple of bits here, even though they are extremely rough sketches made from dead specimens.  These were mostly intended as my "reference charts" for basic anatomical proportions.

Ooh the Jay wing is pretty. Is it watercolour?

Thanks! I think it was gouache. Possibly mixed with a touch of acrylic. Ah, the pre-Photoshop days...
