Just a little doodle I did in Procreate to warm up to the program! It came with a couple of palettes and this particular one inspired me. This is my first time ever using procreate and so far I am in love. 😍😍
Back in the studio again tonight. Trying to meet personal deadlines. Who else finds it hard to balance between a job to pay the bills and career as an artist? What are some of the toughest struggles you have? Even though I am mentally exhausted most of the time, the happiness art brings makes up for it.

Orangutan Eye – Endangered Species Series
Roka Walsh -
Illustration that will be digitally altered with photographic textures.
This is my second orangutan eye. I wasn't crazy about the first one. So here I go again. A work in progress. Illustration/photographic series of animals that are on the endangered species list.
Did you know that orangutan means “man of the forest”?
“Known for their distinctive red fur, orangutans are the largest arboreal mammal, spending most of their time in trees. Long, powerful arms and grasping hands and feet allow them to move through the branches. These great apes share 96.4% of our genes and are highly intelligent creatures.” (WWF)
Their habitat is being destroyed by logging for paper and pulp, and palm oil (please avoid foods with palm oil).
