Free-For-All: European Mink


I wanted to show both the cute and fierce sides of this little mustelid. I spent a lot of time trying some new things in this piece, as I haven’t done many backgrounds involving water. I hope you all enjoy this creek-fishing scene!

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.

February 2021’s Free-For-All featured the European mink.

Shane S. (Yodeldog) used a digital medium to portray both the cuteness of the European mink and the ferocity of its aquatic hunting within a storybook-like illustration. With a cohesive color palette and dynamic composition, this piece truly embodied many facets of this aquatic mustelid’s life.
