Sorry but I am been busy with guiding and doing a rush blanket so I halve not done much art. Here is my contribution for this month. It a mixed media of colour pencils, pastel and intense ink. I will come back later to day and make comments.

Inquisitive and probably hungry coon is all too cute, Joy, an amazing ink and wash piece. You need to frame this guy.

Anne, yes, leave the llama as is since this is a strong and bold sketch. Very well done.

Penny, your horse is so gently looking in this image. So sorry to hear you lost Indy! Always hurts to lose one of the family.

Joe, your sketch collection is growing and so is your ability to do a lot of them so well.

I did a crop of the polar bear and flipped the image, 4.75x4.75 square watercolors on Fabriano 140 lb rough paper.

Beautiful, Kay. I enjoy your watercolours very much.

Thank you all for your comments!

Anne, I don't think it needs color, either. Some darker values in the area around the eyes and nose (where the hair is darker) may give it more impact.
Penny, That came out quite well. What I especially like is the variety of brown shades that blend so well.
Joe, Your drawing proportions, value and details continue to improve. The raccoon and llama came out really well.
Thanks a lot, Joy.

Christel, beautiful pastels. I especially love the kitten.
EP, another fun collection of sketches.

This is my version of the kitten. I started with a freehand drawing but was having problems because the kitten didn't seem to be looking up. I superimposed the sketch over the original image and realized the problem was with the placement of the eye. When I moved it up and over, the kitten started looking up.

Here's my original sketch:

Here's the corrected version with ink and watercolor added:
