Free-For-All: October 2018

As Halloween passes, FaunaFocus finishes with yet another Free-For-All. Six artists drew inspiration from the hawksbill turtle and presented several artworks created in inks, acrylics, and other media. All highlighted the beautiful scutes, scales, and textures of this aquatic reptile.
Congratulations to October 2018’s FaunaFocus Free-For-All Winner, Zoe, who presented us with a mostly achromatic, stylized illustration that beautifully honored the complicated textures and patterns of the hawksbill turtle. The judges were enamored with the intricate linework and attention to detail in this piece and enjoyed the calming, rhythmic feelings that it delivered.
Zoe will choose the final FaunaFocus of 2018 for the month of December, which will be announced at the end of November’s Free-For-All critique livestream. Last month’s Free-For-All winner, Mahle Lynn has chosen the FaunaFocus for November, our first primate, the ring-tailed lemur!
