Frosty Robin

EDM Challenge #204: Draw Something Frosty. The weather here in Central Virginia has not been precisely co-operative as far as frosty things go, yet it has not been cold enough for frosty drinks either ;) So when this little guy appeared in one of my favourite magazines (Country Living UK Edition) and was sitting on a frosty twig, I knew he'd be the perfect subject.
The English robins are quite different from their American counterparts. They are smaller (about the size of a sparrow), and very terratorial, defending their territories from intruders - they'll even attack red rags in spring!


  1. Nicely done - love the berries and the little bit of frost on the branch. Are American robins quite big then?

  2. Yes- the American robins are about the size of a thrush, they are not round they look just like a female blackbird with a red breast :) I'll have to draw one for comparative purposes ;)

  3. I love robins and this sketch really captures that cheeky birdie. Lovely drawing.

  4. I am happy to award you the One Lovely Blog Award. You will find the graphic at this post.
