This week’s topic over at Illustration Friday is wool.

Color Palette

I actually don’t have too much to say about coming up with this idea. I knew I wanted to do a sheep because I want to start drawing animals more often. I’m not very comfortable with them because I’m not overly familiar with their anatomy. Also I love the stylized curls.

Half Shorn Sheep

Half Shorn Sheep oldest instance from FFFFound

While researching sheep I also found this guy, who is pretty awesome. He was the inspiration for the idea of knitting directly from a sheep, something ridiculous yet accurate in an overly simplified way. I also thought having a slightly put out sheep was pretty hysterical. Actually there’s something about irritated animals that I find funny in general, especially domesticated animals. I really doubt they want to have any part in human nonsense.
