There's an insane amount of amazing animal artists on this part of the forum.  -coughcoughacidtrix- -coughericavcough-
Here are my not-as-awesome-but-I'm-still-trying animal sketches.
These range from close to a year ago... to ... um.. couple weeks ago.

the scans are pretty filthy, sorry, but i hope you like 'em!







Cowbabe hahah


Two bear cubs with wayfarers. Grin



Me as a panda, the boyfriend as a grizzly.  This is still probably one of my favorite drawings ever.  It's on my wall at home.



Kittie practice.



National geographic funnn



I fuckin love kittens, can you tell?



Unfinished. Sad


more animal book practice.  still can't grasp drawing fur quite yet.



hip hop anonymous



I love you too, panda.





I love bears, too.



shitty shit shit shit. break sketch.  i don't really know what a mongoose looks like.








This is the last thing I've drawn in like... almost a month.  That wasn't idea doodles or something for class.  My time's being refocused into sewing for the time being. Smiley

I think you are doing a great job on some of these - you can tell that you like bears and cats, as they are by far the best of this lot!  Grin

but the people protraits in the other thread are definitely your strong suit by far

You are very good.  All I can draw - and just about at that - are human body parts (I study biology).  Your kitten looks so real I could reach out and touch it.  Excellent work and I'm very impressed with your talent - wish I could draw more but I guess that would mean applying myself which I can do  Grin.

getmehaha,  the only animal i've drawn live was my cat, & i've been drawing her since i was like... 12, hahah.  everything else is from my animal books/national geographics. Smiley

vintageburlesque,  it's definitely worth the hardwork!  i didn't stop drawing anytime i had freetime over the summer, & it paid off. Smiley  i just took out lots of books from the library, & replaced my tv & internet habits with drawing & painting habits instead.  much more productive, haha

I think that animals are definitely different than people, in both the structure of the body and the head, but if you do baby animals you will be able to draw on your portrait skills more and that may help you to develop and expand your skills

many baby animals have more of an anthropomorphic look to their faces than adult animals, it has been theorized that humans actually never leave the "baby" phase of development as far as physical traits of faces go, so we are perpetually stuck with "baby" faces

don't know if I explained that well at all or not - it is a genetics thing

I think this little girl is perfect.  I have a hard time with children.

PS I love that your write little notes in your sketch books like I do. Arch in Helsinki is brilliant.
