zoo

sketched at the toronto zoo with donald today:






posted in order of completion; you can see by the end of it i was getting tired haha. it was blistering hot and uncomfortably sunny today, and it probably didn't help that we went during peak sunshine hours :9

i used derwent coloursoft in black C650, and i have to say it is an excellent pencil for quick sketches. i'll write a proper review on it later

also, sorry for the crappy image quality.. my sketchbook is too big for my scanner so i had to take photos and it did that weird light thing on me

Greetings, Robynnnn. These are lovely sketches. Looks like you had a good time despite the BURNING HOT SUNSHINE. Cruel Mr. Sun. :( But yah. -thumbs up- The giraffes'n zebra are my favorites. Stripes and spots must be a pain, but they came out great.

Hope your summer's going well!

Cute!
Love the zoo sketches, especially the elephant. Looking forward to having sketch days and movie nights back at RISD in the near future.
Hope that you're well.

BS-ing is...a lot. LOL.

Going to the zoo and sketching animals is a fun activity. If you are lucky you get to see weird quirks for each animal as you are eating away at the ZOO Food. (cottoncandy..etc)
Despite the fact that they are photographed from your sketchbook. they are still vERY beautiful drawings. ;)
