For the past few weeks, I’ve been meticulously studying animals and how to draw them. I started off doing many pencil drawings (not pictured in this post), but here are my most recent animal sketches from a very small sketchbook. I drew them all with a ballpoint pen without penciling them in first or erasing (something I didn’t even know I was capable of doing until just a few days ago). The cheetah scanned a bit blurry in one spot because the drawing spans two pages and I could not press the pages perfectly flat.
Below, you will see a wolf running in the snow, a happy fox looking up at you, a cheetah lying on a grassy mound, a cat’s head in profile, and a Borzoi dog resting its head on a cushion.
