Animal Sketches #1

Image

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.

“Midnight Prowler” – Cat Art

Image

Here is some art I created back in high school called “Midnight Prowler.” (If it looks a little messed up, it’s because this is a scan of an old photograph. The original artwork is too big to put in my scanner). I’m not entirely sure, but I think the medium is charcoal pencil (although it could be graphite). I thought this one was appropriate for Halloween and so decided to share it. Enjoy!
