I took a look at Buttercup and I froze.
It had been easy to draw Melissa's Tilly, chatting and singing on the roost.
Goofy little Rachel was a breeze to draw too. She's basically a knot of orange twirly lines, and she's still alive and kicking.
Buttercup, however, is only a treasured memory. There was more at stake in creating this image. Emotions were involved.
But, being an illustrator, I mustered the focus to hunker down and give it a try.
I aimed for a more classical, rather than comical, style.
Tammy, here's your special gal.
