1-30-11 Zoo Sketches

One would think, since I'm a volunteer at the zoo, that I'd go there more often and draw the animals. Unfortunately, not the case. But I did go for brief visit today and drew. These sketches are usually 30 seconds to about a minute each, for pretty obvious reasons.

Anatomy Studies: Pelvis and Legs

I've been looking at my art from my imagination, and it's been lacking. I particularly felt that the lower limbs were my current weakspot. I don't think I've paid much attention to the legs as I did the upper body, probably because they're usually covered by clothing, like skirts and pants, or they are not part of the picture. I realized I was getting by with them, using short cuts. So, it was time to go back to the anatomy studies. I'm aiming to do masters studies, learning from teachers/authors like Peck and Bridgman, and, most important, try to apply it to referenced pics (I need to find a life drawing group again). Expect more leg studies in the near future.

DSC: Azrael and Dead Girl

I've been a member of the Deviantart group, Daily Sketch Challenge, for a while, but haven't really participated until pretty much this year. I managed to do two so far this week, Azrael II and Dead Girl, on the third and sixth respectively.
