Going to the Zoo

Bit of an unusual post for me this evening. In preparation for going to this 'zoo' (it's more like a small animal park, no lions or tigers or bears, oh my) weekend because the sunshine has finally come to Luxembourg this summer, I like to be a bit of a drawing nerd and research animal anatomy and do artist studies as a starting point and get myself into the mind frame for drawing. I know that there will be parrots at the zoo this weekend, so after reading Mike Mattesi's new FORCE book on animals drawing, I did some sketches and also tried doing character sketches like the ones above. Ill scan in my other with my results from Saturday's session.


  1. Thats funny! I had the same idea. Looks like there may be a few parrots on the AIB jumble!.. unless there are other birds there. These parrots are very nice! I have high expectations of your parrots tomorrow now. Looking forward to it! :D

  2. Clever girl! I always end up going to the zoo and thinking, "I Wish I'd researched beforehand!"

  3. Beautiful sketches!
    I love birds and these are nice birds!


  4. nice sketches and colors. Keep it up!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog! Checked out your portfolio and you have a fabulous line-up. Really like the tiki guy and your kid designs.
