Dala Pig: Blue Hampshire

Dala Pig: Blue Hampshire ~ 2013

Hampshires are one of the most recognizable breeds of pigs with their blue-black bodies split by the Oreo cookie filling band of white around their front shoulders and legs. As much as I don't care for the physical reality of pigs, they are fun to draw (probably because one can clean them up a bit and completely eliminate their odor). And piglets are just plain amusing to watch as they wiggle and fight in a dog-pile to try to get to the food first. This drawing had the fun challenge of perspective drawing all those piglets from the back end, and I was pleased with how they turned out.
