Elephant Sketches

Elephants from memory. I'm trying to memorize their basic anatomy as well as capture personality in these sketches.

From instagram because of reasons.

Zoo Sketches

I visited a zoo today! It's always a lot of fun to sketch the animals from life. Their weight and movement, textures and smells...wonderful.

These are just a few sketches. More are coming!

Side note: the quality of these images is painful. I'm looking for better ways to present my sketches and traditional art online.

Run, Little Lizard, Run!

Quick animation done in Photoshop. This was my first time to try the video layers! They change everything. 

I realize geckos do not run like that. This little guy's running style was intentional :)

And some 30-second gestures from my warm-up earlier this morning.

I Spot a Giraffe!

I'm kind of going through a giraffe-frenzy phase, and in the process, I've discovered just how much fun these animals are to draw. They're adorable and funny--so basically, fantastic sketching subjects.
