Sketchbook

tiger
Given that I don't have time for drawing these days, I thought I'd try to keep my drawing skills sharp by actually using my sketchbook. I've been going through my zoo animal reference photos and have been doing quick 5-minute sketches in ink. Here are a few of them.

Excellent, Heather. I like the lion especially. It has that look you see on cats where it looks like they're content as they close their eyes.

Inspiring too, since I have a baby on the way. If you can do it, hopefully I can too!

Thanks, Glendon. It is hard with a baby (and I have two kids now), so sometimes five minutes is all I can spare.
