Week 3: Australiana

I’m a bit late on posting this, considering I finished the piece a few days ago. So I have to settle for posting it on Paddy’s Day, which means no one will be reading it.
So the topic for this week is Australiana. To be honest I don’t know anything about Australia, just that everything that lives there wants to kill you! I had the idea of drawing spiders or the mythological “drop bear”, but then I thought I’d be very stereotypical and drew a Kangaroo. They are literally Australia’s least scary mascot… Well they could probably punch you to death… Now I’m going to have nightmares about that, hence why I never want to go to Australia.

 

Australiana Original ink work

So above is my Australiana kangaroo, I used a lot of ink, some salt on the background then I added a few drops of white acrylic paint to make it look starry. The next two images are my Photo-shopped versions that I like better than the original.
