A.O.T.D. (Animal of the Day) Canadian Geese


Canadian Geese. Ahhhhhh, the lovely birds responsible for covering our driveway with their "goodness" when I was younger. I still see them honking all over the parks here in the bay area. It's a honking voice you can't miss. Good times!...just try not to be under them as they fly through the sky.

This is a nice little painting; simple, well-balanced, and done in with a good technique. :)

very nice illustration... very very nice... geese, they, er... honk right? in my college, we have peacocks and quite loud ones too... the only problem is their "goodness"... on the way to the insti you have to be extra careful... once me and a friend of mine got covered by just one peacock... they don't shit... they shower... :P

Even with these three simple geese I can tell that you draw and paint very we1l. I'll look for your work again on IF.

Ha ha- great work. It illustrates that unmistakable *HONK* perfectly. They do leave a lot of "gifts" don't they?

I always kind of thought geese were the one true evil creature. Since they'll attack a little kid who is trying to feed them a piece of bread. They're so scary when you're 2! They hiss too! Nasty things...

These are some of the most elegant geese i've ever seen! I love their graceful necks, and they look lovely the way you've left them on the white background.

Oh the memories of being chased around by an angry goose... this is a great illustration, I love the attitudes, but hate the "goodness" at the park.
