More other stuff

Here's another smattering of drawings from my little early morning drawing session; in the quiet, dark part of the day before other people start moving around the house. I tend to pick a subject on a whim and usually find I'm not interested in drawing the same thing over an extended stretch of days but, for a whole week a while back I was really liking lizards. Here are a couple of blue-tongues and a skink.
During the warmer months our garden almost seethes with skinks like this one (below). They're about as long as your finger. I think they're drop-dead cute but that's only a function of size, I suppose. We usually have a few scuttling around the lounge room floor which I like a lot but it's a bit of a downer when you go to vacuum under the rug and find a flat little lizard corpse there.
