Cropped version of the sketch for @inktober @inktoberworld2018
This will be fully colored in gouache once completed, and is 11x14" so my primary goal was to sketch it and ink it as my Inktober finale. I hope it turns out as grand as I envision it. It is of a @renswildlife
beloved rooster, Nuru, who was suspected of being an abandoned or escaped fighting cock. Under their care he thrived and excelled at protecting the hens they already had taken in. He was felled in the line of duty, defender and protector until the end, when two copperheads slipped into the coop.
I hope to paint this rather simply, in a faux heraldic style.
