I had lots of fun at the Sketchcrawl today! It's only too bad that people had to leave early, but we'll just have that much more fun at the next one, right? Haha.. Here are my sketchcrawls:
White-faced Sakis! The first animal we drew.. The reason it looks yellowish in the painting is because its face was dirty, and kinda yellow-stained. The one on the top made me sad to draw, because he really did look sad. The enclosure was only about 10x6x12..
A Bateleur Eagle! It was a pretty cool bird, if only just because its beak and feet were such a vibrant red. On the bottom-right is a lemur I drew.. I only got this far because they left into a concealed part of their enclosure as soon as I arrived.
The first giraffe I painted. I was excited when I drew it because up until this, I'd only been drawing exotic animals I hadn't ever really heard of. Giraffes are big-name animals!
A White-Handed Gibbon I sketched in various poses.
A couple of Red Pandas I drew.. The one in the grass kept pacing around the enclosure. The one on the trees was super lazy.
An Azure-Winged Magpie. This one was really energetic, and kept flitting around the enclosure. It was difficult to draw accurately.
This flashy bird is called a Himalaya Monal. It was super difficult to get its plumage down because it was so colorful, but I think I got it down pretty well. This is an awesome bird.
Garcia the Orangutan! I liked him a lot for some reason. His coat was so shaggy that you couldn't see his feet! It made me laugh.
Spotted Hyena! The Hyena up and bolted while I was in the middle of this sketch, so the remainder I filled in from what I knew about a dog's anatomy.. Which isn't much.
Giraffe, Take 2! This was later on in the day, when they were feeding them - Around 3PM.. The smell was horrible. I can still smell it..
My animation friend, Percys Moran! A semi-caricature I did of him at a Salvadorian Eatery we went to after the zoo:
I was happy with the way this one came out.
My new friend Dave! I dunno his last name.
For some reason he was harder for me to get a likeness of.. I theorize it may be because I didn't know him as well as I knew Percys, and therefore was.. No, that's bullshit.
AND THAZZIT! I'll have a link to photos up in a moment, people!
