If cows had wings, would they dare to fly?

Or would they be too afraid to try, thinking the task impossible?

Graphite pencils on sketch paper. The calf comes from one of my own photos.

Edit: Redrew the wings, because they were bothering me and looked awkward for some reason... Anyway, for better or worse they're changed. (Hopefully better because I altered the original sketch).

Apparently, I forgot to come by and mention the adorableness of this, and the cute little wings, and the awesomeness in general of the entirety of it.

Forgive me.

I'll try not take so long to comment again.

Now I don't know whether these new wings are better or worse. >."

Well if that isn't one of the cutest things I've ever seen I don't know what is! And I am not particularly fond of cows either.

D'oh. >.*does an impersonation of an evil villain when something goes disastrously wrong, letting out a long, anguished "NOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo...!!!" while shaking her fists at the stormy sky as her voice echoes into the distance. Or whatever it is evil villains do when something goes wrong*

Okay, I'm over it. It's done now, too bad. It can be Quasicowdo. 10

The flowers are a nice addition, though.

Um, actually I added them to cover up the marks on the paper where I erased the old wings. *shifty eyes*

*realizes that this is a fairly horrible comment* Er...

It needed to be said, though!

:-) Megan Proverbs replies: "Well, of course it needed to be said, that's the whole reason I have stuff up here. ^^ "

I’s so cute! 1
And yes, I think it would fly... if, per say, a fat guy with a red face (not unlike my brothers teacher O.o) came wagging towards it with a knife and fork. If I were a winged cow, I’d try to fly away from that. O.o
I do love your winged cows, though. ^^

1 Megan Proverbs replies: "Haha! Awesome. Indeed, yes, that would make ANYTHING try to fly. Thanks!"

so cute! and I think it would fly, such as it being a calf. I dont think ’adult’ cows would have the (how to put this) inocence or imagination to try. kids just seem more oppen to new ideas.

1 Megan Proverbs replies: "Absolutely true, and what a wonderful comment. "
