This week is all about mammals and birds. I spent about 3 days watching documentaries on YouTube about the African Elephant. This one is my favorite. While watching I made some gesture sketches. They were a mess! – you get to see the two that at least looked like an animal… Then I worked on a couple poses. The assignment was line drawing in profile, but I can’t wait to draw them with shading and texture. The elephant has a wonderful textured skin that drapes over it’s body for ease of movement. It really is a majestic, beautiful creature.
