I’ve worked with some antsy models before; idly picking at fabric during a figure drawing session; answering the phone while holding a pose, or constantly changing the pose that was *supposed* to be held for 45 minutes… but nothing, nothing, could compare to these guys.
I was lucky if I could get 10 seconds of stillness before they’d bound across the floor, crash into each other and start a vicious playfight that would roll across the living room and into the kitchen. Maybe I could get a foot sketched out before then. Just maybe.
Needless to say, I worked from pictures for this one.
Can’t really be mad, when this is what they look like when not causing chaos and destruction.
This illustration was created for the 2014 Alaska Ferret Symposium and will be available during the auction. It features our little fuzzy terror dumplings, Sigrun and Stitch. I was thrilled to be asked to participate and I wish them a fantastic event!

On a sidenote, I am loving working with pencil and pen like this. Suggestions for the next animal?
