Last weekend I went birding in Central Park with my brother. You wouldn't think there would be a lot of bird species in the middle of New York City, but there are a ton! My favorite was the Black Crowned Night Heron... he looked like the villain in an animated Disney movie or something. I'd like to do a cartoon version of him at some point. Turning all the birds we saw into cartoon characters would be a great character design challenge. Anyway, here are a few quick sketches to start my morning.
