Alpaca & Octopus

I drew both of these from illustrations in an old children's dictionary ("Macmillan Dictionary for Children, Revised Edition" Copyright 1987 Macmillan Publishing Company).

I want to do more like these, except in a way that avoids possible copyright infringement (I wouldn't care if I were just hanging them on my own wall, but I'd like to try selling some). I'm not the type that can draw like this straight out of my imagination; I really need something to look at, and I'm still figuring out what that can/should be. I also may want to switch to watercolor (these I did with colored pencils). I'm a little torn. Watercolor feels like more of a challenge than colored pencil, but I also find it really appealing. Maybe I'll just work with both for now, and eventually a favorite might win out, or not, and that would be okay, too.
