here is the beginning of a dark green zucchini illustration:
i was trying to keep it loose and start with a wash on each zucchini, but i have such a hard time staying loose. i think it'll work out alright though. A fun fact about zucchinis from ehow: "Italian immigrants brought the zucchini squash to the United States in the 1920s, according to the University of Illinois Extension. The squash caught on and became popular in the 1930s."
And just to let you all know, for the next couple weeks there might be a lot of half way finished stuff or quick sketches since I am visiting family for the holidays.
