Animal Drawing


Yesterday my Animal Drawing Class returned to the Franklin Institute to do more animal drawings from the animals they have on display in their diorama's. This was our second trip and we were supposed to concentrate on heads and legs. Here is a bunch of sketches that I did, most in pencil but the water buffalo was drawn with a prisma color.
The displays are good, but the animals have the frozen look you have to try and overcome while drawing them. For me the best animal drawing by artists like Bob Kuhn have a life to them that makes them leap off the page. Just like drawings of the human figure, accuracy at the expense of life/energy just leaves me flat. next week we are supposed to hit the zoo to do more drawing from life.

I still continues impressed with the quality of your designs. Drawing animals is one of the most difficult things in this industry, but you have not any problem to do it. I hope when I finish my career at Generic Viagra Drawing Center my abilities have enhanced drastically.
