Watercolor penguin

Watercolor penguin - student project

For the final project, I decided to paint a penguin. Here's the reference photo I used:

I made the background more colorful so it'd be more interesting to look at. Also probably should've chosen a less derpy looking subject... No matter what I did the face looked weird.

Also 3D shading is hard... gotta work on that sphere.
