About This Work: Andy

As much as I love animals, I’ve never really attempted to draw them realistically. I’ve done plenty of doodles and cartoons of them, but never really attempted a realistic drawing. A few years ago, I decided to draw one of my guinea pigs, Andy. I was really happy with how it turned out, and that I managed to capture the varying shades of color in his fur.

The reference image I used.

This drawing is a bit bittersweet, as Andy passed away on November 12th. He was a sweet little guy who loved to cuddle. I’m glad I was able to immortalize him in one of my drawings.
