Behold a possible look for the kakapo if it was to be domesticated after years upon years of selective breeding and getting the most desired and convenient features. Note that I based the concept after researching the selective evolution of modern day dogs.
-They come in different colours other than just green (hence being blue)
-They have heart shaped beaks.
-Upright postures almost like a penguin.
-Smooth features on the body and chubby thighs.
-Curly feathers on the tail, wings and forelegs.
-Ugg boot like forelegs like a silkie chicken.
-The ability to speak like flying parrots.
-“Cuter” and less wild features.
Now, I am not saying we should start taking in kakapos as pets. Wild animals should remain wild. I am just playing with possible evolutionary paths for animals like kakapos for my next project which takes place in the future so several animals have gone extinct and those who survived, changed. I really love kakapos and I would like to include one as the cute pet of the story. I haven’t decided what colour he will be yet though.

It is truly a beautiful and rare parrot, and it would be a huge loss to the animal kingdom if it died.
I'm not the best with watercolors, but I thought this ended up okay. The commissioner was very happy with it, which makes me happy :3 And when someone's paying for art...it's best if they're the happier one anyhow :) (in my opinion.)
Anyway, this is for the short story in Dubliners, "An Encounter."
I think I'm going to read the whole book now. I don't know why I haven't read Joyce yet o_O
Dark Horse updates Wednesdays; The Whimper in the Dark updates randomly.
I guess technically animations should go here?
I've never really animated before! (well, no 2-D animation) This was fun, I'd like to learn how to do it in something other than photoshop.
Animating some of the lyrics of my current favorite song (yes it's synced, but you would have to time it very nicely)
(( here's the song it's very good))
I guess the next step is animating more than just a bust, huh.
If you see me on the forums im probably procrastinating.
