a couple of blue-footed boobies

I've been experimenting with dark outlines around  flowy watercolor. Here are a couple of blue-footed boobies I tried out this way. I think the one above, where the outline is also watercolor, works better than the one below with pen.

It's always nice to see a couple of boobies Naomi - and yours so beautifully presented in such a lively pose. Seriously though, it is great to see some more of your work. You're right, although both charming, the top chap works better than his mate below. The irregular weight of stroke better suits your watercolour style. The bottom illustration looks like a neat illustration of a blue-footed booby, whilst the top appears to me to be Billy the boisterous blue-footed booby.
