So I know that when the Hoopla swap gallery starts up, this board fills up too. But I wanted to share my hoops that I made for jungrrl.
A lot of work (and cussing) went into these hoops.
Mostly because it's really hard to find a good picture of a Dodo to use for reference, let alone a baby Dodo, haha. I spent many hours sketching out a baby Dodo attempting to make it look real and like it would have actually come from the adult Dodo and not a cartoon, ha.

So this is what I came up with. I did lots of blending with multiple colors of floss and did just the slightest amount of tinting.
It was my first time tinting (I used colored pencils) and I am very happy with the way it came out!

Hope you like them.  Smiley





And the two together...

These are too incredibly awesome and darn cute and amazing!  Totally love them!  The baby dodo is completely convincing with his big caboose and fuzzy self!
