So is it Pegasi?

Pin It Now!
Lookee here, several sketches this week. I know, I'm spoiling you. But I do have a burning question: is the plural of pegasus actually pegasi? Or is it pegasuses? Please help me out if you have an educated answer for me.

Besides the pegasus or three, I did some mermaid sketching this week. Lots of fun playing with the flow-y hair and curving shapes. I guess this gal is a queen of some sort? Let me know if anyone has a story idea.

Lastly, I've got a tree drawing. Tree drawings are just something fun that I always enjoy doing.

I suppose everybody is gearing up for Halloween? I'll actually be out of town for the weekend. So you may or may not get a blog post out of me. It will have to be either early or late. We'll see...

There is actually no plural version of the name Pegasus because it is the proper name of a flying horse. Although if you ask me, I would totally go with Pegasi!

Loving the Tree ;) You know where I find the best trees? Check out the trees from Winnie The Pooh. They are an often overlooked jewel of the art world.

Yeah, Sean. Those Winnie the Pooh trees are great. Recently I watched Disney's animated Robin Hood -- the one with all the characters played by animals, and was noticing how beautiful the trees were in that too. Very N.C. Wyeth-ish.
