Free-For-All: African Penguin


I grew up visiting the zoo often with my family as a kid and I spent a few summers as a teen volunteer at our local zoo, which by chance happens to have this type of penguin, so these cheerful little guys bring me good memories of that time.


The FaunaFocus Free-For-All is an art competition that is open to all and is intended to foster community-based learning while celebrating successes and encouraging artists to improve from discipline and criteria.

April 2019’s Free-For-All featured the African penguin.

Shadowind digitally painted a beautiful display of the African penguin diving underwater to catch a fishy feast. With such vivid colors and lovely gradients, this piece perfectly captures the fluid, fast movement of the penguin as it dives into the sea with other members of its colony.
